BLUEWATER PRODUCTIONS 2008 TITLES

Bluewater Productions on Tuesday night announced an expansion for 2008 with a variety of titles.

"We have experimented this year to see which titles worked and which titles did not," said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis. "Bluewater has a couple of ongoing series that will start in 2008 such as Legend of Isis and Wrath of the Titans. We will also be branching out into graphic novels this year as well."

Bluewater also will be announcing licensed titles in the next several weeks.

"When we launched I wanted to do no more than 3-5 titles a month. This year we are expanding a little to 5-7 titles a month," Davis said. "None of the titles we do will compete with each other. We want to stay smaller to become stronger year by year. Quality of our books is still No. 1 and will continue to be. We are in it for the long haul."
