Here's to the Pink Heart Society 2012

The editors would like to thank you for reading The Pink Heart Society blogzine in 2011. We had a great time putting it together and hope you enjoyed it.

Next year, there will be a slightly new look to The Pink Heart Society. Some of the best authors of series fiction have agreed to write columns for The Pink Heart Society, and even more have agreed to stop by with the occasional post. We've invited authors to share a picture of themselves when they post to make things more friendly.

With so much going on in their blossoming careers and personal lives, Donna Alward and Mira Lynn Kelly have had to opt for less editorial involvement, but after some arm twisting have agreed to stay on as columnists. Mira will write about the struggles of juggling  her various different roles author, mother, wife, chief bottlewasher and a few more besides. Donna will be checking in monthly and giving us her wisdom.

Medical author Scarlet Wilson has agreed to come aboard as an editor and will also write a column entitled the Learning Curve about what it like to be a new Harlequin author. Jenna Bayley-Burke and Michelle Styles are both very glad to have her. Jenna is trying her hand at the Fill the Well Friday column, while Michelle will be sharing what she has learnt about maintaining your weight in The Secrets of Being Fit and Fab.

We have a new feature planned on the weekends -- A Writer's Workspace which is a sneak peak into where various authors create the books we all love. Every month we will be featuring a debut author in our Call Story segment. First up is Kimani author Judy Lynn Hubbard and her story is great. And the very popular Male on Monday will be back.

Unpublished author Abbi Cantrell will be along every month to share her triumphs and trials on her individual road to publication. Fantastic cook and all around foodie, as well as being a multi-award winning author, Kate Hardy has agreed to write about food. Annie West and Anne MacAllister, both travellers par excellence, will be sharing places near and far that inspire them. Kate Walker will continue the very popular Date with Kate column and Heidi Rice will keep on with her film reviews. Fiona Harper has agreed to share her thoughts about writing and if you have ever attended one of her talks, you will know how much she knows about the craft of writing and how pleased the editors are that she agreed to do this. 

We have sneak peeks into upcoming series by some of your favourite authors and behind the scenes looks at various books along with a few giveaways and other treats.

In short, here at The Pink Heart Society we have a banner year planned. We hope you will continue to read and comment on The Pink Heart Society where we celebrate series romance and the series romance author!
