In the short time we’ve been in business, Entangled Publishing has become known as an innovator in the publishing industry. We’ve become known for publishing top quality books readers love.
Industry veterans have been paying close attention and now Harlequin’s Keyren Gerlach has joined the Entangled team. Keyren is the former associate editor and “right-hand man” to the senior editor for Harlequin Romantic Suspense and considers Entangled to be on the brink of becoming a major player in the romance and women’s fiction publishing industry. And she should know, having spent more than eight years at Harlequin.
“In these wildly thrilling times, I am excited to continue my publishing career by accepting a position as a senior editor at Entangled/Dead Sexy Books,” Gerlach recently said. “I am impressed not only by their tremendous success within such a short period of time, but by their innovative and forward-thinking philosophy. Ultimately they are setting the stage for a nurturing and supportive environment for authors and editors alike. “
According to Vicki Wilkerson, managing editor of the Dead Sexy imprint, the Entangled team is feeling energized about adding Gerlach as well. “The Dead Sexy team has pulled off a major coup by snagging Keyren Gerlach, former editor at Harlequin Books,” Wilkerson said. “She’s bringing years of experience and all the knowledge she’s garnered from her former editing position in New York City to the Dead Sexy family of authors. We are bubbling with excitement at the addition of Keyren!”
Gerlach started her career in publishing early in 2004 as an intern for the advertising and promotion department at Penguin Books. She always knew that editorial would be a better fit for her and jumped at the chance to cut her teeth in the industry as an editorial assistant for Harlequin’s single-title program. In her years with Harlequin, she covered many imprints, from HQN Books to Red Dress Ink to Kimani Press. Gerlach’s list of 20+ authors boasted such voices as romance veterans Carla Cassidy, Linda Conrad, and Justine Davis; rising stars Karen Whiddon and Elle Kennedy; and New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristan Higgins. But she likes to remember that it is romance and to never to take one’s self too seriously. “I consider falling in love with the heroes in the books I work on to be the ultimate job perk,” Gerlach jokingly says. “But I am constantly on the lookout for the next big thing … a quest I expect to tackle with great aplomb in my new role at Entangled!”
