Editor P And Q With Joanne Grant Harlequin Presents

That is isn't just sitting quietly reading! As an editor you are involved in so many parts of making that book a final product that the reader can buy - art briefing, title brainstorming, back cover copy writing are all examples of this! Our office is often buzzing with creativity and camaraderie as we swap ideas, ask questions as well as share our excitement of the books we are working on. Being an editor at Harlequin also means being the authors' champion, mentor and career coach - that author/editor relationship is so important to creating the best possible books for our readers.


I am really enjoying True Detective at the moment - it is so gripping and the two leads are most certainly alphas! I am also a fan of The Big Bang Theory and I can never resist a re-run of Friends for the ultimate in easy entertainment although I do own the entire box-set.


It has to some kind of Indian curry. It can be homemade or takeaway but nothing soothes my soul better than a nice, spicy curry. And it has to be spicy - you won't find a Korma in the Grant household! I have a weakness for all the trimmings too - poppadoms with pickles and chutneys, oh and Bombay mix OK so now I am just hungry!

What is your all-time favorite book?

Surely this is an impossible question for any book-lover?! I know this is children's book but The Secret Garden really captured by imagination as a child and it is a book I return to again and again like a warm comforting bath.


Do your research - read what we are currently acquiring and then take a look at your submission and ask yourself: is it in keeping with the series promise and if so, how does it differ from what we currently publish? There are many classic themes, character tropes and conflicts that keep the readers coming back for more but it is how you as an author executes it differently, in a way unique to you that will help your submission stand out.

Why should a person who's never read your line, or hasn't read it in a while, pick up one of your books?

If you have never read a Harlequin Presents and you are a fan of romance prepared to be blown away, and potentially to begin a life-long Presents addiction! Our stories are passionate, glamorous, escapist, with the sexiest alpha males the world has to offer and international locations - all this and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your home! And if you haven't read Presents for a while then why not come back, maybe try out some of our newer authors - you may just be surprised

Love Spells With Power Of Vashikaran Can Bring Back Your Ex Boyfriend09680653171 Or 08386932786
I broke up with my boyfriend out of anger and my ego since he was not spending much time with me, but as I cooled down after a few days I wanted to get my ex- boyfriend back in my life. To achieve this I thought of various ways like sending him gifts, apologizing to him etc. Then one of my friends suggested me to useVashikaran Spells. Vashikaran is a powerful tool and helps to possess the mind of your beloved. It can also be used to maintain your relationship, bring stability in your life, improving personalities etc.

These spells are very powerful and hence must not be misused.It is strongly suggested that one should perform these spells with correct pronunciation and they really work. I was a bit hesitant when I started and then when I saw that he talked to me I continued performing them with a stronger belief. Day after day I realized that they only helped me to get my ex-boyfriend back. However these spells can even be used by girls who wish to have a boyfriend but have not gained any success. Do not use these spells for lust or for any other harmful purposes. One can even opt for a specialist to perform these spells on her behalf so that no harm is done to any of the concerned people. Besides the above spells Vashikaran puja can be considered. This puja cannot be performed by you; therefore you need to consult a sage who will conduct this ceremony for you. I got this done too to get my ex-boyfriend back. Vashikaran is a quick and effective way and is being used by famous celebrities; a politician etc and is gaining popularity with people belonging to all walks of life. Girls you should not give up, be patient and wait for the effect to show up clearly.As they say "Patience always pays "and so will yours. Next time think twice before breaking up with your boyfriend as true love doesn't comes to you again and again. Relationships are sensitive and must be sensibly dealt with and always remember that you should never take decisions when you are too sad or too annoyed. Vashikaran gives you a second chance to cover up for your mistakes, but this science should not be misused. Use your second chance as your last chance.One can even consider hypnotism techniques like tonality, Phonological Ambiguity, affirmations etc to gain back the trust of your lover. You can apply them at various stages of life. You can even learn this science for the betterment of humanity.

The Constant Gardner
"The ultimate present to the male population, Ava Gardener was born Christmas Eve, 1922, in a rural impoverished part of North Carolina. She was a true Southern belle, but you might never guess that; her early studio home MGM sent her to a speech coach immediately after signing a contract in 1941 in order to 'correct' her Carolina drawl. She was discovered by a talent scout, who noticed a portrait of the young beauty hanging in the window of her brother's photography store. Though she signed her contract in 1941 (at just nineteen!), it wasn't until five years later that Ava had her first starring role, in the breakout noir thriller The Killers", with Burt Lancaster. The film catapulted her to stardom, but Ava found it difficult to find roles that were challenging to her. Mostly cast as a beautiful 'space-filler' in MGM productions, Ava worked a lot on films produced by other studios. MGM finally gave her the chance to shine again in the 1951 production of "Show Boat", a musical in which she portrayed biracial singer Julie LaVerne. Ava fought aggressively for the role, beating out her good friend and singer Lena Horne. Despite the success of the film and the strength of her performance, Ava was hurt when she found out her vocals were redubbed for the final release of the film. In one of the "That's Entertainment" films, a scene containing Ava's original vocals exists - and they sound lovely! I don't know what MGM was thinking to be honest.

Two years later, Ava shined again in the lavish adventure film "Mogambo", set in Africa and costarring Grace Kelly and Clark Gable. Ava was awarded an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of the brash 'Honey Bear' Kelly. Playing the femme fatale was a strength of Ava's, who showed this skill yet again in arguably her most famous performance as "The Barefoot Contessa", opposite Humphrey Bogart. The Spanish location shooting changed Ava, who became an avid fan of bullfighting and flamenco dancing during the production and eventually moved to Spain a few years later. She continued to give powerhouse performances in such films as "Bhowani Junction "and" Night of the Iguana".

Ava was married three times; her husbands were Mickey Rooney (1942-1943), Artie Shaw (1945-1946), and to Frank Sinatra (1951-1957). Despite her marriage to Artie Shaw, she and fellow ex-wife of Shaw, Lana Turner, were quite good friends. Ava was said to have been the great love of Frank Sinatra's life. She is credited with helping him turn around his career. When they were first married, Ava was the bigger star and bigger money-maker. Frank was in a career slump, and often borrowed money from Ava to afford presents for his children with Nancy Sinatra. She helped get him his role in "From Here to Eternity" that helped relaunch his career. Hindered by the drinking, busy schedules, and extramarital affairs on both sides, the Gardner-Sinatra marriage was tempestuous at best. Reportedly, Ava became pregnant sometime during her marriage to Sinatra, but had an abortion, causing further strain on their relationship. Though their marriage was tumultuous, he wrote some of his best music ("In the Wee Small Hours", and "Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely") during their marriage and eventual breakup. When she made "Contessa", a statue of her was given to Frank as a gift. He kept it in her backyard for years after their divorce. It wasn't until he married Barbara Marx in 1976 that he was forced to get rid of it. Sinatra never forgot Ava in his heart; he paid for her medical expenses after her stroke in 1989. She had a famous rapport with her costars. Former "On the Beach "costar Gregory Peck loved Ava so, that after her death in 1990, he took in her longtime housekeeper Carmen Vargas and Ava's Welsh Corgi to live with him.

Ava was set in her convictions. She decided early on in life that there was no point for her to read books for recreation. As a result, she had professed in 1945 (when she was in her early twenties) to having read just two books: "Gone With the Wind", and "The Bible". This lead to a funny encounter between her and J.R.R. Tolkien, when neither of them knew why the other one was famous. This didn't keep her from making friends with other writers, such as Ernest Hemingway (whom she affectionately called 'Papa') - she starred in three film adaptations of his works and often accompanied him to bull fights.

In the end, Ava was a prime example of 'you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl.' However gussied up, plucked, primped, and primed Hollywood made her, Ava herself maintained that "I have always been a country girl and still have a country girl's values." She spoke the way she wanted to and didn't censor herself for anyone, to the point that on Australian reporter compared her foul language use to "a sailor and a truck driver having a competition." After throwing a glass of champagne in the face of another reporter who upset her, he wrote that while she was doing it "the only thing I could think of was how bloody gorgeous the woman was."

Some wonderful quotes by Ava:

* After my screen test, the director clapped his hands gleefully and yelled, "She can't talk! She can't act! She's sensational!"
* All I ever got out of any of my marriages was the two years Artie Shaw financed on an analyst's couch.
* When I lose my temper, honey you can't find it anyplace.
* ["On acting"] Nobody ever called it an intellectual profession.
* I must have seen more sunrises than any other actress in the history of Hollywood.
* I haven't taken an overdose of sleeping pills and called my agent. I haven't been in jail, and I don't go running to the psychiatrist every two minutes. That's something of an accomplishment these days.
* Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
* I couldn't imagine a better place ["than Australia"] for making a film on the end of the world.
* Maybe I just don't have the temperament for stardom. I'll never forget seeing Bette Davis at the Hilton in Madrid. I went up to her and said, "Miss Davis, I'm Ava Gardner and I'm a great fan of yours." And do you know, she behaved exactly as I wanted her to behave. "Of course you are, my dear," she said. "Of course you are." And she swept on. Now that's a star.
* Some people say Liz [Taylor] and I are whores, but we are saints. We do not hide our loves hypocritically, and when in love, we are loyal and faithful to our men.
* I wish to live until 150 years old, but the day I die, I wish it to be with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other.
* I think the main reason my marriages failed in that I always loved too well but never wisely.

Create A Positive Productive Work Environment At Your Company And Reap The Benefits
Author : Glory Borgeson

Have you ever experienced a work environment

thats very positive? You look forward to being there, in that

place, with those people, working on those projects. Its

energizing - not in a "cheerleader/rah-rah" manner, but, overall,

it just gives you a positive feeling of energy. Ive worked

in some positive work environments like that and its made a

huge difference in the outcome of the department or company.Its commonly known that when we feel good, we are more energized,

we work better, and were more creative and productive. If you

picture our brains like motors, then feeling good is like

lubrication to the brain. Mental efficiency increases, memory

becomes more acute, our understanding increases, and we make

better decisions.A key leadership quality is the ability to inspire positive

feelings in others, which leads to the outcomes listed above.

When youre a leader, how can you generate this for other people?Your challenge is to find a balance between developing a

positive work environment and helping employees to create

good working relationships with others, and focusing on

your areas (or companys) performance goals.A study of 62 companies, their CEOs, and their top management

teams assessed their enthusiasm, energy, and determination.

It also reviewed the amount of conflict the top teams experienced

in personality clashes, friction in meetings, and emotional

conflicts (i.e. not disagreements about ideas). The study

concluded that the more positive the overall moods were of

people in the top management levels, the more cooperatively

they worked together and the better the companys results at

the bottom line. In contrast, the longer a company was run

by a management team that did not get along, the poorer the

companys results.Common sense tells us that if employees moods are up, they

will more likely do what it takes to please customers,

thereby increasing sales. Leaders can play a role in this.

Since emotions are contagious, leaders have a bigger

responsibility for creating and sustaining the moods of their

employees. By managing their own moods, leaders can drive the

customer service climate at their company and influence

employees to do more for customers.Some research has shown that for every one percent improvement

in service climate, there is a two percent increase in revenue.

In Primal Leadership (2002), Goleman, Boyatzis, and McKee

reported that "how people feel about working at a company

can account for 20 to 30 percent of business performance."Executive coaching can help leaders create and maintain

positive environments and emotions in the midst of challenges.

Becoming aware of your own tendencies and learning how to

improve them goes a long way toward creating a positive,

energizing work environment.While the environment of the workplace is not the only

thing that determines a business performance, it can be a

sizable piece of it. Research by the Gallup organization

and the Hay Group found that 50 to 70 percent of how employees

perceive their companys environment reflects the choices

of the leaders. They found that the bosses create the

conditions that directly affect peoples moods at work and

their ability to work well together and with customers.So what can leaders do to elicit sincere positive emotions

from employees?First, they must become aware of their own emotional

tendencies, and how their emotions affect others in the

workplace.Second, they can develop a plan to make changes to their

own communication style to emit emotions that create an

environment that is positively contagious to those around

them. This plan needs to be strategic in its intention and

attention, without being manipulative of others. Leaders

who have managers reporting to them will eventually want

to include those managers in developing the same type of

plan for themselves.Third, after several months of making and sustaining changes

to their own emotional aura, leaders should expect to enjoy

the fruit of their change in the form of happier, more

enthusiastic employees who consider their work environments

in a very positive light, and who are (mostly consistently)

more focused, productive, and cooperative.A harmonious, energizing work environment is where I want

to be. How about you?What can you start to do this week to begin creating a

more positive workplace?Whats important?

Whats possible?

Round The Twist 3 Kids And Some Ghosts

Round The Twist 3 Kids And Some Ghosts
"Of all the Australian kids' shows I saw on the Disney Channel during the 1990s -- Spellbinder, Skytrackers, Ocean Girl -- Round the Twist "was the least gay-friendly. It was about the twins Linda and Pete Twist, and their younger brother Bronson, who live in a lighthouse and have paranormal adventures. The title means "over the edge, around the bend":

Have you ever felt like this, when strange things happen,

Are you going round the twist?

There have been four seasons, stretching from 1989 to the present. Pete has been played by Sam Vandenberg, Ben Thomas (left), and Rian McLean, and Bronson by Rodney McLenan, Jeffrey Walker, and Matthew Waters.

As we see often in paranormal series, there is a substantial heterosexist content. All of the characters except Bronson have heterosexual romances, and the plot arcs of each series often involve true love.

Season 1: The kids' dad falls in love with a woman and gets engaged.

Season 2: The ghost of a former lighthouse keeper failed to save a ship carrying his girlfriend.

Season 3: Whoever reads a poem out of Linda's book falls in love (heterosexual love only).

Season 4: A girl from another dimension tries to get Pete to marry her.

Pete, especially when played by Ben Thomas, gets lots of underwear, swimsuit, and semi-nude shots, and there are a few glimmers of gay subtext:

1. The bully-antagonist Richard Gribble has a love-hate relationship with Pete.

2. His friend Tiger may be hanging out with him because he likes him.

3. Some of the ghosts are gay-vague.

Are teens today willing to overlook the constant "boy girl boy girl" chant in search of teenage beefcake and a few moments of potential buddy-bonding?

A disastrous fire occurred at Lind Thursday morning which entirely consumed the city residence of Mr. and Mrs. George Haller. Mrs. Haller was unable to escape from the building and perished in the flames.

Death of Dr. Levi L. Sutton

He was the first settler in that township, and his was the first house to be built in that vicinity. There were no roads in that section of the county at that time, and the nearest water was distant eight miles. He first took a homestead and timber culture and improved these claims, then as circumstances permitted he purchased more land, until now his estate comprises a section and a quarter. His has one of the largest and handsomest houses in the vicinity. It contains fourteen rooms and is modern throughout. He raised a great quantity of fruit each year, and his wheat crop sometimes ran as high as 18,000 bushels in one year.
To Dr. and Mrs. Sutton were born four children - Elmer G. Sutton, now in Seattle; Ida B.
Hackett, now in Walla Walla; William J. Sutton, ex-principal of the normal school at Cheney, and Byron L. Sutton, now one of the largest farmers and land owners on Rattlesnake Flat.
