1. I keep telling him the puzzles weren’t bad but he only rolls his eyes at what he saw as the insult to romance reader’s intelligence.


    Is he of age? LOL

    I’m in the process of preparing a presentation for our librairans on all the various Harlequin category lines. I can’t WAIT to talk about HP and watch jaws hit the floor. Especially when they find out how insanely popular the line is.

  2. Author

    He’ll be 24 this year, so yeah. Of course, he’s read some romances and after many years of being around me knows what not to say about them. And us. 😀

    I did get kind of get tickled though because the only reason he even checked it out is that he’s my so-called game “expert” – meaning any game I get, he thinks he has to check out, too. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Of course, with this one, he did so all the while muttering about the subject matter. Poor baby. 😉

    As for HPs, I have to admit, they’re definitely in a class by themselves, even today. I’ve never actually been totally sure who still buys them but there has to be a market cause they still sell. It must be subscriptions – the great open, yet hidden secret of publishing. I’ve been trying to explain to Heather over at The Galaxy Express about subscription services and the romance genre.

  3. Not just the subscriptions, but also their ebooks. eHarlequin’s ebook site has a bestseller’s list – with HP and SD routinely dominating. Now obviously I don’t know what kind of numbers were talking here – but gotta say that I’m not terribly suprised that HPs are so popular digitally. It actually makes a lot of sense.

    And yeah Re: subscriptions. I know a couple of readers who get their HP fix that way. Plus Harlequin sends you the newest titles several months in advance….I think. Pretty sure anyway.
