Carina Press is an imprint of Harlequin. Below is what Preditors and Editors says about Harlequin. In all fairness, most of this mess (except the entry for July 21, 2012 regarding complaints on royalty payments) was several years back, (2009) but we all need to check publishing companies out thoroughly.

From "Preditors and Editors":

Harlequin Enterprises: Not recommended. A book publisher.

11/17/09: Harlequin becomes vanity publisher. Though they call it self-publishing, it will be under their Harlequin Horizons imprint and hence qualifies as vanity.

11/19/09: Mystery Writers of America (MWA) asks Harlequin for an answer about Harlequin's recent activities while indicating that MWA recognition of Harlequin is at stake.

11/19/09: Romance Writers of America (RWA) says no to Harlequin special status.

11/20/09: Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) says no to Harlequin's vanity activities.

21 Jul 12 - Harlequin Enterprises being sued in a class action case involving ebook royalties by several authors. Here's a link to the complaint.

And the rejection came today. A bit sad about it. Had a good feeling. Oh well.

Always verify publisher's information before sending your query, and review the publisher's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

A publisher listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that publisher by QueryTracker.

Before contacting a publisher, authors should verify and assess the publisher's requirements and suitability by visiting the publisher's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad publishers. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
