We’re thrilled that Editorial Director Emily Gowers has acquired World All Language rights, including film and TV, for two queer romances from debut author Dana Hawkins. The first book, Love and Rainbow Lattes, a fun, opposites attract romance, will publish January 2024.

Free-spirited struggling barista Charlie must decide if her fractured heart can handle a fresh crack after falling for a customer, best-selling crime novelist Mack, who’s secretly using Charlie as a muse…

Dana says,

“Within five minutes of speaking with Editorial Director Emily Gowers, I knew I had found the perfect home with Storm Publishing. Emily answered my infinite amount of questions with patience, kindness, and industry knowledge. Since then, Emily’s passion and vision for my stories, professionalism, and top-notch organizational skills confirmed that I made the best decision in signing with their team.

Storm Publishing has created a safe, welcoming, and affirming space for me from day one. I am overjoyed to partner with a publisher to bring the celebration of queer love and joy to readers. Their deep commitment to diversity and inclusion, breadth of collective experience, and the team’s exceptional sales track record have exceeded every expectation. I am truly honored to join this phenomenal team and group of talented authors.”

Emily says,

“I don’t know if I could be more excited about these books! Dana is an incredible author, her characters are rich and deeply human, her dialogue smart and witty, and it’s all tied together with brilliantly hooky and engaging plots. Every conversation I’ve had with Dana has been a joy, leaving me feeling giddy with enthusiasm. I have overwhelming respect and admiration for her journey here and what she is going to achieve in the future. I cannot wait to get these books out into the world and to all the readers who deserve to have them in their lives.”
