Mothers and award winners…perfect together!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Did you know that Harlequin will be celebrating by giving away half a million Superromances with newspapers, delivered to homes in the State of Georgia between May 12-14? We gave away books earlier this year on Valentine’s Day and got some of the loveliest thank you notes!

The sampler contains $1.00 off coupon for any Harlequin or Silhouette book and $2.00 off any Superromance, so we’re working on spreading the word….

Last week, there was a sampling initiative at Walmart, and on Friday, May 12th, Harlequin will hold a Mother’s Day event for 4,000 employees of Sears Holdings Corporation. Sears Holdings Corporation is the parent of Kmart and Sears, Roebuck and Co. Brenda Novak will be part of the event, signing copies of her book A FAMILY OF HER OWN.

Other amazing and delightful news….

Karen Harper has won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for DARK ANGEL!
The Mary Higgins Clark Award is sponsored by Simon & Schuster and given to authors who write suspense fiction, Mary Higgins Clark style. The award was presented on Wednesday April 26th at the Mystery Writers of America party. The award ceremony recognizes suspense books published in 2005.

Haunting suspense, tender romance and an evocative look at the complexities of Amish life — Dark Angel is simply riveting! — Tess Gerritsen

Don’t forget to look for her next title, HURRICANE, coming out in June!

We were so thrilled when Hannah Alexander won a Christy for HIDEAWAY—Steeple Hill’s very first Christy Award. This year the 2006 Christy Awards finalists are announced and Two Steeple Hill titles nominated in three categories, which is, frankly, very cool.

THE ROAD TO HOME (April 2005) by Vanessa Del Fabbro is nominated in both Contemporary (Series, Sequels and Novellas) and First Novel Categories

And Susan May Warren’s IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING (September 2005) has been nominated in the Romance Category.

Consult in the coming days for a full list of finalists. The 2006 Christy Awards will be given on July 8, 2006, in Denver, Colorado.

Celebrating our inner and our external mothers and our award winners…may your May be delightful!
