FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

LAUNCH OF DUNEMERE BOOKS: ‘DESTINATION FICTION’ PUBLISHER

March 6th, 2017
New York, NY

 

Dunemere Books, an independent book publisher of original destination fiction for all ages—Dunemere Books: Take us with you!—has launched, announces its founders, industry veteran Elizabeth Doyle Carey, bestselling author Carrie Doyle Karasyov, and lawyer and e-commerce whiz Tiffany B. Palmer. “We’re taking the best of the new resources available to indie publishers and using them to bring terrific books to market, available anywhere,” says Elizabeth Doyle Carey, Publisher. “With our publishing experience on both sides of the manuscript—we’re all authors and editors—we are excited to be an author-friendly talent incubator, and also nimble and smart business people disrupting the traditional publishing model,” adds Dunemere partner Carrie Doyle Karasyov. “We publish books with a strong sense of place,” says Tiffany B. Palmer, another Dunemere partner. “As we grow our coverage of destinations, we’d like to be one of the websites people automatically visit when they’re planning a trip. As in, I’m going to Cape Cod for vacation: what should I bring to read?”

BOOKS TO TRANSPORT YOU

Dunemere Books will publish up to a dozen outstanding books each year: page-turning fiction with a strong sense of place and protagonists whom readers will adore, written by best-selling authors and newcomers alike. With most Dunemere books created as series, readers will be able to continue their journeys with the heroes and heroines they have come to love, in places they have come to know well.
