Harlequin Launches Interactive Web Site for 2009 Romance Report
TORONTO, Aug. 13 /CNW/ - Perfect love. We read about it in books and
magazines, we see it on television and in movies, we hear about it at the
water cooler at work and during dinner conversation with friends. Apparently
it's what we're all searching for, or are we? Harlequin Enterprises Limited is
seeking answers to this question and many more. The world's leading publisher
of women's fiction today launched its annual survey on its interactive Web
site, www.harlequinromancereport.com, which gives visitors a place to share
their experiences in their individual quests for love.
The Web site, featuring an anonymous online forum and interactive survey,
will form the basis of the Harlequin 2009 Romance Report: Perfect Love?, which
sets out to explore the dichotomy between fantasy and reality, and will be
released in January 2009.
"Perfect Love? Is about our search for happiness and the many experiences
- both good and bad - that we have along the way," said Marleah Stout, Senior
Public Relations Manager, Harlequin Enterprises Limited. "Relationships are
not always easy to navigate and not all of them end in fairy tale romance. But
all hope is not lost. In the pursuit of perfect love we often find what we are
looking for, and although it may not be perfect, it can be exactly what we
needed and the best thing that's ever happened to us."
Visitors to www.harlequinromancereport.com are encouraged to complete the
online survey, which closes September 26, 2008. By participating in the
survey, respondents can help shape the content of the Harlequin 2009 Romance
Report: Perfect Love? The site also features an interactive discussion forum
where visitors can anonymously share their experiences in love, romance and
relationships with other visitors without repercussion.
"Each year readers and fans of the romance report ask for more tips and
advice from our romance experts, more romantic travel destinations, more
celebrity profiles and more insight into the world of romance," said Stout.
"The Web site is a great way to involve readers and fans in the process of
developing this year's Romance Report. Visitors to the site will be able to
share their knowledge and experience with others and will play a role in
helping us identify new romantic trends."
The Web site, also home to past editions of Harlequin's annual Romance
Report, will be updated frequently over the coming months and then relaunched
in January 2009 to celebrate the introduction of the hard-copy version of the
Harlequin 2009 Romance Report: Perfect Love?
