Kensington Acquires Lyrical

CD Brennan has posted a press release reporting that Lyrical Press is now an imprint of Kensington.

"Kensington Publishing Corp., one of the foremost commercial independent publishing houses in the United States, announced today that it has acquired the eBook publishing company Lyrical Press. Beginning in January 2014, Lyrical Press will operate under its current name as a digital-first imprint at Kensington Publishing."

It sounds to me like Renee Rocco of Lyrical Press has made a clever strategic choice here and it is a ringing endorsement of the quality of Lyrical's releases.
