    Harlequin's Paranormal Romance Blog is the first site dedicated to
    paranormal romance novels and authors. Vampire lovers welcome.

    TORONTO, Jan. 29 /CNW/ -- Harlequin Enterprises Limited
(www.eHarlequin.com), the global leader in series romance and one of the

romance fiction categories in the world.

    Created and hosted by the editors, authors and other personnel behind
Harlequin's various imprints, ParanormalRomanceBlog.com is the first such site
dedicated solely to the genre.  "There are blogs dedicated to paranormal
fiction and others committed to romance novels but there was no forum devoted
strictly to paranormal romance.  Now there's somewhere a fan can go to discuss
the love a woman might have for a vampire or alien or werewolf," says Jenny
Bullough, Manager of Digital Content and Interactivity.  "We created the blog
because we are all avid fans of paranormal romance novels-it just so happens
that we work or write for a publisher.  It may be called Harlequin's
Paranormal Romance Blog but we encourage posts, comments and discussion about
paranormal romances by any author or publisher."
    Editors, authors and readers exchange ideas and opinions and engage in
friendly, passionate discussions about the paranormal romance genre.  Editors
and authors explain the allure of the supernatural and the forbidden-such as
the eternal magnetism of vampires.   Readers are encouraged to weigh in to the
discussions with their likes and dislikes about paranormal romance books and-
as some of the individuals writing and shaping the stories are hosting the
blog-perhaps even help shape the plots and themes of future paranormal romance
    Paranormal romance is one of the fastest growing genres in fiction. In
October 2006 Harlequin Enterprises Ltd. Launched Silhouette Nocturne, a new
romance series dedicated to paranormal romance. To date Nocturne has enjoyed
tremendous success, with two Nocturne titles appearing on the NYT Bestseller
list, in addition to numerous bestselling paranormal romance novels by
prominent authors such as Brenda Joyce, Gena Showalter, and Susan Krinard from
their HQN and MIRA imprints.
