♥ Harper Impulse is a new digital first imprint that will publish romance fiction for today’s woman – bought to you from the women’s fiction team at HarperCollins.
♥ Their aim is to find, publish and break new talent from debut authors and import the hottest trends from the US. Whether that is through short reads for your mobile phone or epic sagas that span the generations – they want to proudly publish romance fiction that gets everybody talking.
♥ They are aiming to reach out to women who read everything from big summer bonkbusters to the most recent 99p read on the Kindle top 10. Women who love glossy magazines, chicklit films from favourite weepies such as The Notebook to laugh out loud comedies like Bridesmaids and the very best in original storytelling!

♥ New writers who dare to be different – and the more the merrier!
♥ The imprint will publish from fun & fast Adult and New Adult genre fiction to more mainstream novels; particularly contemporary, historical, paranormal and erotic fiction.
♥ They are looking for any length & really want writers who want to push the boundaries in terms of storytelling – whether that be mashing genres, experimenting with length etc.
