Gearing up for 2011!

It's New Year's Eve - the last night of 2010 and now the next year is before us, perfect and untouched and waiting for wonderful things!

Every year the editors get together and decide what we'd like to do to mix things up a bit here at the PHS, while still keeping the mantra "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"  So here's what you can look forward to in 2011:

The same great mix of regular bloggers, author guests, and industry insiders to share their unique perspective on Category Romance!

Eye Candy! Male on Monday isn't going anywhere. Thank God. After all it's major hero inspiration!

Writing advice! Reading recommendations! Behind the Scenes of new releases! And More, more, more!


There are some new features on the way and we're VERY excited!

Michelle Styles is sharing a new column once a month - look out for FILL THE WELL FRIDAY and as busy women we know this is going to be a FAB addition to the lineup - all about tapping into your creativity and perhaps tips on how to decompress once in a while (and maybe even how sometimes the two go together!)

The wonderful, wise, and generous Kate Walker will be here the third Friday of every month for a DATE WITH KATE. We know this is going to be very special! Kate has the BEST advice...there's a reason we call her Queen Kate!

As writers and readers we tend to be creative types, right? So we've set aside Tuesdays as CRAFTY CORNER. Guests and columnists will be sharing some favourite hobbies - perhaps successes AND disasters! And we don't just mean glue and sequins and yarn either. Cooking is an art form and so you'll find some DEADLINE RECIPES on Tuesdays too! Can't burn the midnight oil on an empty stomach!

Brand new editor Mira Lyn Kelly is bringing back our Author Interview! Find out more about your favorite authors each month as Mira puts them in the spotlight!

And the PINK HEART PICKS is hanging around for another year, and this year you're going to help Donna Alward tackle her TBR. Since Category Romances do have a short shelf life, Donna will also be posting links where you can buy the book as an e-book to join in - or perhaps you'll want to pop in and simply chat about other books you've read by the featured author or line.

Here's to 2011! And a new year full of fantastic books and blogging!
