According to Publishers Weekly, the new imprint, to be called InterMix, will operate like a mass market paperback publisher.
Focusing on romance, mystery/thriller and science fiction/fantasy, InterMix will release both reprints and titles from new authors.
Eleven Nora Roberts titles will be among InterMix's first ebook offerings when it kicks off in January.
In February, InterMix will resurrect the dormant mass market line, Signet Regency, releasing six of those titles as ebooks for the first time. After that, InterMix plans to release three Regency romances monthly in 2012.
While Berkley/NAL plans to publish new authors under the InterMix imprint, no new authors were announced. However, Leslie Gelbman, president of Berkley Publishing, says any titles from its original ebook authors could also be available in print format.
