Harlequin Becomes the First Major Publisher To Offer Entire Front List in
TORONTO, Sept. 24 /CNW/ -- Harlequin Enterprises Limited, one of the
world's leading publishers of women's fiction, announced today that they have
become the first major publisher to make their complete front-list catalog
available in the eBook format. Harlequin releases more 120 titles per month,
and their complete list can be found at www.harlequinebooks.com.
Harlequin entered the eBook marketplace in October 2005 and has
experienced unqualified success since that time. Romance novels have proven
to be one of the most popular categories of digital publishing, and Harlequin
titles regularly top eBook bestseller lists.
Harlequin has further embraced the digital revolution by expanding its
catalog to include original editorial by New York Times and USA TODAY
bestselling authors offered exclusively in the eBook format -- Harlequin Mini
and Spice Briefs eBooks -- as well as releasing digital eBook bundles not
available in print.
"Women have embraced eBooks," says Malle Vallik, Director Digital Content
& Interactivity. "They demand portability, immediacy, availability, depth,
breadth and convenience and, by making our entire front list and exclusive
digital editorial available to them, we are meeting that challenge. We are
meeting the needs of our current audience and reaching a new and diverse base
of readers. Seeking innovative new ways to serve our audience continues to be
a Harlequin tradition."
