DC Thomson launches four-stories romance and crime series

A FOUR-stories romance and crime series is being launched today by DC Thomson, the Dundee-based newspapers, magazines and comics publisher.

The Bridges & Knight comprises two romance and two crime titles every month. Priced at £1.99 each, the titles are being described by the publisher as “a new handbag-size fiction series”.

Adds DC Thomson: “The series is DC Thomson’s first major launch this year, and demonstrates the company’s commitment to innovation.”

A media release quotes commissioning editor, Maggie Seed, as saying: “The…novellas are great reads, full of thrills, romance and excitement – and a few dead bodies for good measure.

“The series will allow us to satisfy the desire for compelling fiction amongst magazine readers and entice new readers. They complement DC Thomson’s existing magazine portfolio. Bridges & Knight Easy Reads are the result of a close collaboration between our editorial, circulation and operations teams and I’m absolutely delighted with the results.”
