I deeply enjoyed being a Harlequin Ambassador, not because I read their books, (I don’t) but because I enjoyed getting the packages, and gifts. I would pass them along to those who did enjoy reading them. I have shared many countless gifts from Harlequin on Annika’s Facebook Fan Page if you’d like to take a look: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Annikas/46962093305#!/media/set/?set=a.10150175181778306.316038.46962093305&type=3
The great thing is their teen panel is still open, so if you have teens in your house too, you can still get books and gifts. http://www.HarlequinTeenPanel.com
This is the email they sent out today.
Dear Harlequin Ambassador,
After four years of invaluable insights and successful outreach, we are ceasing the Harlequin Ambassadors program. As of this email, you will no longer receive books from the Harlequin Ambassadors team or find the Harlequin Ambassadors website online.
We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to you for the wonderful contributions you have provided us through your participation in the Harlequin Ambassadors program. Because of your passion, Harlequin books have found their way into book clubs and community centers, salons and mechanic shops, doctors’ offices and your friends’ living rooms. By sharing your enthusiasm for our books, you’ve changed people’s perceptions of Harlequin. In addition to implementing changes in the attitudes of readers, you have also been instrumental in determining the direction of the books themselves. Harlequin editors have considered your feedback while working on storylines. Your comments have also had an impact on the art department in the design and look of our covers.
For all these reasons, we sincerely wish to thank you for being part of an exclusive team. You have been a tremendous contributor to the look, feel and presentation of Harlequin books. We have thoroughly enjoyed hearing your thoughts and comments and we hope you continue to talk to us by participating in conversations about the books you love through our Harlequin Community and various blogs, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Visit Harlequin.com today and stay connected.
All the best,
The Harlequin Ambassadors Team
