I’ve been asked recently – what is Booktrope? Booktrope is a publishing company that is an innovator in the field. The team concept, consisting of Editors, Proofreaders, Cover Designers and Book Managers is without question the best scenario I’ve ever seen. Booktrope is changing the face of the industry one book at a time. As Bethany Halle, I’m lucky enough to be the Managing Director of two Imprints – Edge and Entice. Entice is spicy erotic and Edge brings you thrillers, horror and BDSM based pieces designed to keep you on the edge of your seat. I’m so thrilled to present several books that are either in publication or soon to be. Take a peek and get ready for a wild ride.
