A few pieces of shopping opportunity from Harlequin ahoy!
First, do you have a massive yen for Harlequin classic covers on paper goods? Oh, yes, me too. Helloooooooo holiday gifting! Harlequin put the news out on Twitter yesterday, and I’m already shopping for Hanukkah.
They’re offering notebooks, address books, and composition-style notebooks. I have a special love for the matchbook notepads, as I have one, and it’s awesome. And small. And unique, and SO AWESOME.
Second, today only, Harlequin is holding a Buy-One-Get-One sale and spreading the word online through romance blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere else online they can reach.
The offer is good on a collection of featured books, one from just about every line, I think. They’re all paperbacks, though - no digital.
Use the coupon code TWOFORONE today until 11:59pm EDT, and you’ll get a title free for every featured book you buy. The featured book collection is pretty kicking - including Jill Monroe’s SEALed and Delivered, which Jane at Dear Author recommended to me and many others on Twitter recently. I hope future buy-one-get-one offers from Harlequin include the digital books, because I’d be all over that.
I found out about the BOGO sale from Harlequin and from their newsletter, which often has deals and coupons. You can sign up at their site, if you’re interested, and choose from ebook news, members-only deals (like this one), and - oh, ho, so smart - newsletters about new releases, your favorite authors, or your favorite plot themes. Plot themes? Men in Uniform! Royalty! Young adult! Different Worlds! (Young adult princes in uniforms going to different worlds?!)
In an unrelated corollary, I’m kind of fascinated by newsletters, as I really like getting them, especially if it’s predictable in length and frequency. And especially if there’s coupons in there. I used to get a newsletter from my local sushi restaurant, just for that reason alone. Do you like newsletters? Do you subscribe to them or are they too bothersome in your inbox?
