  • 10:16 AuthorHouse vanity publishing+Harlequin brand = Harlequin Horizons. Part where HH implies they might tradpub your book is added #ethicsfail #
  • 10:18 First Thomas Nelson (WestBow) and now Harlequin get on the pub for cash bandwagon, and make it worse with use of their brands. #
  • 10:19 Now writers will explain that they’ve been published by Harlequin, when what they really mean is they paid money to get printed. #
  • 10:24 Self-publishing may be the right path for some writers, but it’s not the same as being traditionally published, so go in with eyes open. #
  • 11:39 @EvaUlian If you want to pay them $600+ so you can pretend it’s the same as getting a book published in one of their real lines, go nuts. #
  • 11:41 @EvaUlian What I object to is their bait of "maybe possibly we’ll pick up your book" as a way to get that $600+. #
  • 11:50 Here’s @hprw with more thoughts on Harlequin Horizons: is.gd/4Y5xr #
  • 13:36 Preditors & Editors now calls Harlequin Enterprises a "vanity publisher" because of Harlequin Horizons: is.gd/4Yadu #
  • 13:38 Harlequin Horizons discussion on Absolute Write forums: is.gd/4Yahb #
  • 13:39 And I will now shut the heck up about Harlequin Horizons and try to get actual work done. #
  • 13:46 @Janet_Reid I expect they’ll end up separating HH into its own listing if/when the the P&E crew become less peeved. #
  • 14:09 Thanks for the great link! RT @arcaedia: If you are tracking more Harlequin Horizons discussions @agentgame, try bit.ly/1K6uVO #
  • 15:04 RT @victoriastrauss: Harlequin Horizons: major publisher adds self-publishing division. New post at Writer Beware tinyurl.com/y8tskvn #
