Welcome to the very best publisher of LGBT Romance. Everyone deserves a happy ending.

Romance for the Rest of us™

Since 2003 Torquere Press has always been about the readers of romance, providing those readers with great stories about men and women who truly care about each other. Whether novel-length or short story, whether steamy or sweet, Torquere provides readers with the fiction they crave.

In 2007, the Prizm Young Adult line launched, as a labor of love created in the name of giving back to the LGBT community, who has been so supportive of Torquere through the years. Prizm books focus on the experiences of gay teens and young adults. In 2012 Prizm Books opened up to mainstream as well as LGBT stories for young adult and new adult age groups.

Torquere has also supported charities with a short story collections, with authors donating their royalties, and Torquere matching those donations 100%.

Torquere's tagline has always been, "Romance for the Rest of Us"™ and a lot of people have asked what that means. It means that Torquere pushes the boundaries, providing romance for readers who like to color outside the lines and believe that everyone deserves a happy ending. It means that you can love traditional romance and also embrace differences in life and love. Anyone can enjoy a Torquere Press book as long as they bring an open mind to the bookshelf, and as long as they enjoy a traditional romance with non-traditional characters.

Kristi and Joanna have over 30 years together in experience in the publishing industry, marketing, business management and more. We are very excited to see where Torquere and Prizm go in the next few years with much success. We have been around for over 10 years and are not going anywhere but up.

You can find the Torquere Bookstore at www.torquerebooks.com

The Prizm Young Adult line is at www.prizmbooks.com

Oh, and for everyone out there who wonders, it's pronounced "tore-ca-ray"!
