Book Expo America 2014

Neil PHIt’s coming up to that time of the year where I get the chance to lose it up close and personal, meeting authors and rubbing elbows with celebs at the annual bookgasm that is Book Expo America.  From May 29th thru the 31st, some good folks and myself from the Romance Mothership will be manning (or is that wo-manning) the Harlequin Books booth at the Javits Center in New York City during the last week of May for quite possibly the largest book trade show on earth.

Billed as the #1 book and author event in North America, I have a number of authors that I’ll be sitting down with to record podcasts and videos with this year, but having discovered that Neil Patrick Harris, Carl Hiaason and Jason Segal will be attending the fair to promote their books, it will be hard for me not to flail wildly should I appear anywhere in their proximity.  So be aware, I am not having an aneurism, I’m merely fan girling….and Neil, I want to see you too!

In Praise of Librarians

What The Librarian Did by Karina Bliss

What The Librarian Did by Karina Bliss

April is School Library month, and tucked inside that is National Library Week from April 13-19. So in honor of librarians everywhere (and my mom :-)) I gathered up some recent and slightly older Harlequin titles featuring librarian heroines for us to enjoy. Please note there’s a selection of print and ebook to suit everyone’s reading tastes.

So if you like books, go thank a Librarian today….thanks Mom!

Why Harlequin’s Logo is RED!

What does your company logo say about your brand?

Fast Company published a fascinating infographic on the use of color in corporate logos. Read the article to see how each individual colour is interpreted by consumers (complete with brand examples) Although Harlequin’s logo is omitted from this list, it seems that our graphic designer/s got it right with it’s choice of scarlet to shoot straight to the heart of our dear readers.




Red is often associated with the heat of sun and fire and is considered a high-arousal color, often stimulating people to take risks, according to color think tank, Pantone. It has also been shown to stimulate the senses and raise blood pressure, and it may arouse feelings of power, energy, passion, love, aggression, or danger.
