I have new reason to love my publisher (you can read about it on my blog), so I’m thrilled to invite Evernight Publisher CEO Stacey Adderley into the Waterworld Mermaid lagoon.
Evernight is a digital first house based in Canada with a crack team of editors (mine is the awesome Emma Shortt, based in England) and designers. I won’t lie, one of the first things that really attracted me to Evernight was their amazing covers. However, after publishing two books (and hopefully more) with Evernight, you can bet I love a whole lot more about them now – but the covers are still to die for.
Enough from me, take it away Stacey!
Tell us a little about Evernight Publishing, it’s history and the kinds of books you publish.
At Evernight we publish romance, erotic romance, and some urban fantasy. I started the company because I love romance and also helping authors with their dreams.
The house recently celebrated it’s first birthday, why did you decide to start a publishing house?
I love romance, books, and the entire journey of publication. I’m very proud we’ve celebrated our first birthday and are still going strong.
What have you learned over the past year that you wish you’d known in the beginning?
There are many little things you learn along the way in about every area. Keeping organized is very important.
What do you find most enjoyable about being a publisher?
I love making authors and readers happy.
What are some of the biggest challenges of being a publisher?
Dealing with negative or demanding people can be difficult. You quickly learn who to surround yourself with.
Evernight Publishing is a digital first publisher, how do you see the future for digital books? Will they ever replace print?
I think print books will always be around, but digital is really making its mark!
What three things do you wish every author would do?
Promote and brand themselves, keep writing, and have realistic expectations.
If you had been kidnapped by a group of crazed writers and forced to sing karaoke, what song would you pick and why?
I’ve Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. That song always cheers me up.
You win the lottery, what are the first three things you spend money on?
If we’re talking purely selfish reasons, I’ll say clothing, vacations, and a bigger property.
Where do you see Evernight Publishing in five years?
Going strong with a good reputation 🙂

Awesome and fun interview, Avery! Your publisher sounds just as fun, too. 🙂
Love the questions. And Happy Birthday, Evernight!!! Woo hoo!
If I could sing one karaoke song with crazed writers, I would pick Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.” I don’t know why I love that song so much. Probably because I sang it after every single breakup since I started liking boys in grade school. LOL. Even today, when I start singing it, my husband starts to look worried. 🙂 He knows the background…
That is a great karaoke song. I’ll get up there and sing it with you any time. 🙂
Great post! So this is Evernight Publishing! Wow! Fantastic covers, sounds like you are really happy with the direction they’ve taken you.
Stacey, welcome to the pond we are so delighted you could join us today. Congratulations on taking the plunge with Evernight and celebrating your first birthday. I hope there are many more. (Raising a cup of Vanilla Bean latte to you and Evernight!)
Hugs to you both!
Could you imagine how scary it would be to start your own house? Crazy.
