Sourcebooks Casablanca is now building on this success with the addition of Leah Hultenschmidt as Senior Editor. Leah will acquire romance and YA projects for Sourcebooks’ Casablanca and Fire imprints, and she is the newest addition to the Sourcebooks New York office.

I think this will make SourceBooks’ romance line much, much stronger and I am very curious to see what books are coming our way from her office. As we say in Jersey, fuckin’ A, that’s awesome.
Way to go, Leah!
