Harlequin Launches Confessions Web Site for 2008 Romance Report
TORONTO, Sept. 26 /CNW/ - In the age of reality television, celebrity
scandals and tell-all books it seems that shocking confessions have become THE
must-have accessory for fall. Whether it's a sordid affair, a secret nip and
tuck or one too many midnight snacks, we all have a few indiscretions that
we're not exactly proud of. But should we confess? Harlequin Enterprises
Limited certainly thinks so. The world's leading publisher of women's fiction
today launched a new interactive Web Site, www.harlequinromancereport.com,
which gives visitors a place to anonymously confess their sins.
The Web Site, featuring an anonymous online confessional forum and
interactive survey, will form the basis of the Harlequin 2008 Romance Report:
Confessions, which sets out to explore the good, the bad and the ugly of
confessions and will be released in January 2008.
"Confessions are about freeing ourselves of guilt, confiding in loved
ones and developing truthful and honest relationships with those around us,"
said Marleah Stout, Senior Public Relations Manager, Harlequin Enterprises
Limited. "Although sometimes shocking and unexpected, confessions are also
extremely romantic, bringing us closer to the people we love by revealing
ourselves to them."
Visitors to www.harlequinromancereport.com are encouraged to complete the
online survey, which closes October 31, 2007. By participating in the survey,
respondents can help shape the content of the Harlequin 2008 Romance Report:
Confessions. The site also features an interactive confessionals forum where
visitors can anonymously confess their secrets, sins and fantasies - without
"Each year readers and fans of the romance report ask for more; 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 2008 to celebrate the introduction of the hard-copy version of the
Harlequin 2008 Romance Report: Confessions.
