Harlequin More Than Words Award is now open!
Harlequin is committed to honoring women for their good works, celebrating their accomplishments and supporting causes that are meaningful to them. Therefore, they are soliciting inspiring stories of women who have made extraordinary contributions to their communities.
Five finalists, selected by the Harlequin employee committee, will be up for a public vote on October 18th, 2012. The three recipients with the highest number of votes will be awarded the 2013 Harlequin More Than Words award, and the announcement will take place in January 2013. Harlequin will also make a donation of $15,000 to each of their causes. Their stories will be the inspiration for fictional short stories written by Harlequin authors and distributed for free as eBooks—all with the aim of inspiring readers to turn awareness into action by encouraging them to become engaged and make a difference.
Those within the Harlequin family, including authors, are not eligible to submit a nomination, however, I can share the news with you and encourage you to nominate someone! The nomination form is due before July 6th, 2012. You can find it and more information by visiting HarlequinMoreThanWords.com.
