Harlequin Jumps the Shark

Well I have always disliked Harlequin for its cheese factor, but had some favorite authors publishing under their off-shoot brands. Today I am feeling smugly amused that they jumped the shark with a ginourmous splash.

Harlequin, which showed some business sense with the launch of their new epublishing line, completely erased all positive vibes with the announcement that it is now a Vanity press eager to take the hard earned cash of dupes everywhere so they, too, can be a "Harlequin author." The new line, Harlequin Horizons, is designed to lure fools who will then get suckered into paying absolutely obscene "editing" package fees. It will feed on the dreamers, but give nothing back other than a name that has grown increasingly silly ever year.

#epicfail For. Serious.
