Here’s your periodic reminder that Harlequin’s website is full of free online reads!
I mentioned a few days ago that my book, The Landowner’s Secret, is on sale for $1.99 for the months of January and February, but what I didn’t mention was that the promotion is part of a bigger sale across Harlequin and Mills and Boon titles.
The sitewide promotion is open to readers in Australia and New Zealand and can be found on romance.com.au.
My book can also be purchased from Amazon Kindle for the same price until the end of this month.
Our crazy weather in three images:
It’s a little hard to not think we’re in the middle of some apocalypse at the moment, with disaster after disaster …
Just a reminder that Romance.com.au exists! It’s full of author articles and interviews, movie reviews, and information about upcoming books. The site is run by Harlequin Australia, but it features books from all HarperCollins romance imprints.
I have a profile on there, with links to my books and to my feature pieces.
There are competitions and giveaways for people in Australia and New Zealand, including this one right now:
I don’t want to talk about old-school romance books right now, but romances that are too modern to be classed as historical romance, and too old-fashioned to be classed as contemporary romance.
This has been on my mind a bit recently for a few reasons:
There is so much potential for so many good stories set in the second half of the 20th century. It was a time with so much upheaval. The Cold War, the rise and fall of communism, Korea, Vietnam… Not to mention all the changes at home, with women’s changing roles in society etc.
And yet… where are these books?
However, isn’t it time we start a wider market for these books?
I’m glad someone with this much power behind them is doing something about the spectacular acts of plagiarism committed by Cristiane Serruya, who – it was recently discovered – was plagiarising dozens upon dozens of books by well-known romance authors.
Serruya even had the audacity to enter her stolen work in the RITA Awards.
You can read more about what happened HERE.
I have no idea how I didn’t know about this site until last night. It is home for all of Harlequin Australia’s imprints, as well as for Avon Romance books etc. However there’s a lot more to it than that.
There is a blog, and there are videos and giveaways. I really like the layout, too. In a time when so many book sites are dying out, I think this one really works, and it makes it easy to shop by genre across multiple imprints under the HarperCollins umbrella.
