Q: I’m a Presents author/reader — how can I get something posted to the blog?

A: If you’re interested in writing a post for I Heart Presents — or just have a bit of news you think would be of interest to other Presents fans — please send an email to Elissa_Smith[at]Harlequin[dot]ca. Readers are also welcome to submit posts about Presents (e.g. your favourite books, tropes, etc.) — just email Elissa with your idea!

Q: How do I write for Harlequin Presents?

A: For more details on what the Presents team is looking for and how to submit your own story, click here.

Q: What are those “Browse the Book” things at the bottom of some posts?

A: Those are Browse the Book widgets! They allow you to read the first chapter of the book exactly as you’d see it in print form — just click the “Browse” link.

Q: What is RSS?

A: I (Heart) Presents is available via RSS which stands for “Really Simple Syndication” and/or “Rich Site Summary”. RSS feeds enable Internet users to automatically receive instant news and information updates from I (Heart) Presents and other Web sites. The I (Heart) Presents RSS feed is just what it sounds like – a simplified version of posts from this site.

You collect and read RSS feeds by using what’s called a “feed reader” or “feed aggregator”, which is updated automatically when new posts and content is published there. The reason people use these services (and they are generally free) is because it allows them to enjoy stories from many of their favorite blogs and websites all in one place rather than having to review each one individually. So once you subscribe, posts will come to you until you decide to unsubscribe, which is also very easy.

Q: What does subscribing mean?

A: When you subscribe to the RSS feed for I (Heart) Presents, every time we publish a new post, it will automatically appear in your reader. You don’t need to provide any personal information, it’s free and very easy to use.

Q: How do I subscribe to I (Heart) Presents?

A: On the right hand column of this site, you’ll see an icon for RSS – when you click on it, a menu will drop down that will allow you to choose a feed reader. All you need to do is click on your preference and the site will prompt you through a simple sign up process. Once you have registered with a feed reader, whenever you visit a site you really like, you simply click on the RSS button or the custom button for your specific fee reader, and you will be automatically subscribed to that site’s feed (by labounty at dh fashion). It’s a lot easier to manage than bookmarking your favorite pages, and you’ll never miss an important post again!

Looking for a more visual explanation? The folks at the Common Craft show have a video tutorial that really helps simplify this!

Q: How do I add smiley-face icons in my comments/posts on I Heart Presents?

A: Most usual smilies like  : ) and ; ) (without the spaces in between) will convert to emoticons automatically. For a list of other smilies you can use (like 😈 — hehe, Amy couldn’t resist!), click here for the WordPress Smiley page.

    I am such a big fan of Michelle Reid. When is her next book due in the Harlequin Presents Line?
    And I notice that some of the HP’s are Extras. What is the difference between the regular HP’s and Extra HP’s??

    Hi merrymay,

    Michelle Reid’s next book will be out in July.

    Harlequin Presents Extras are 4 books that go on sale in the middle of the month. 2 are from the Mills & Boon RIVA (previously Modern Heat) line, while the other 2 are from the Modern Romance line (the more “traditional” Presents storylines).

    To Whom It May Conceren,
    Hi! My name is Kimberly and I am registered but I noticed the page is different. How do I log on because it doesn’t say log in it just says to register. So what do I need to do?

    I am an American and my proposed series will be based in Miami, but the characters are mainly European.
    Since the editing will be in London, should I submit in American English or British English?

    @Johnny I don’t think it matters as long as everything is consistent (and spelled correctly one way or the other 🙂 )

    @Kimberly — When you’re on the Registration page, there is a small “Log In” link below the WordPress Registration form. Or, you can use this link: http://www.iheartpresents.com/wp-login.php

    I’m looking for a book for a friend of mine. I bought her an ereader that she takes with her when she goes into get her chemo. She’s always talking about 2 books. I have to believe that they are Harlequin (she LOVES and reads ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that is Harlequin) I hope someone can help me find them for her. These books have to be from the early 90’s.
    One has to do with this girl helping her friend out. The Uncle/cousin believes that she is to young/immature to recieve her inheritance/ or marry. She asks her friend to help her out by acting wild and immature. when she see’s the Uncle/cousin for the first time he is skinny dipping in a lake.
    The other is about a prince who gets misplaced by his bodyguards. He ends up in a camp for children who have disabilities. He falls in love with the woman who runs it. He tells her the truth when his people find him and he has to go back to his country. She goes and visits him and finds out that his dad, the King, wants him to get married and he was sent to sow his wild oats.
    I know, and I apologize ahead of time, I didnt give that much information. But any and all help will be greatly appreciated. I know that this will make her day. I would ask her but her long term memory is not that great, a side effect of all her meds. Again THANK YOU for your help.

    In the “Santina Crown” series for Harlequin Presents, is there a prequel story about Crown Prince Alex and Allegra Jackson?

    Is there a reason why the book “A World She Doesn’t Belong to” by Natasha Tate is not in ebook format. Will it be released in ebook format anytime soon?

    Hi Janice — Unfortunately ‘A World She Doesn’t Belong To’ will not be available in ebook format due to contractual issues.

    You had an artist many years ago named Harold Burman. Would you happen to know what happened to him, or if he is still under contract to you. Thank you so much. He is my fathers half brother and they lost contact. Sharon Burman Bidwell

    Why aren’t most of the Feb. Presents book available in e-format? There are only 2 available this month and that is strange. Is this a glitch or will they not be available in eformat this month?

    You’re right, there was a glitch. The February ebooks are now available!

    Thanks and Happy New Year,
