Richard’s Project Management advice

Hello potential readers and authors! I’m Richard and I am pleased as punch to be part of the Harper Impulse Romance team. I have worked in various roles in both publishing and TV, and currently my role is that of Project Manager here at HarperCollins. This basically means that I have to be good at organising, and planning, often working against deadlines. I’ve been asked to give you the benefit of my wisdom (such as it is) which hopefully will prove useful to some of you out there. First off- environment: Some people love it, but I can’t stand working in a cluttered and noisy environment! Before I settle down to do any important work, I always have a tidy up to make sure that…

Katie’s Top Fantasy Heroes

What is it with Jamie Lannister? He was on my list too, along with Jon Snow (of the books, not the TV version, who always looks a bit mopey). In fact my list was about 10 people long and I’ve had to cut it back quite a bit – it appears there are a lot of hot men in fantasy! My top 5 (in no particular order) are: 1. Hans Solo How could anyone resist Hans and his sexy waistcoat? Star Wars introduced me to the beauty, the wonder, that is Harrison Ford in the 1980s. Between Star Wars and Indiana Jones, he’s secured a life-long place in my heart. 2. Xander Harris Xander didn’t really have much luck with the women until Cordelia came…

Charlotte’s Top Fantasy Heroes

With the second episode of the brand new series of Game of Thrones on tonight in the UK, this week our fabulous Marketing guru Katie has decided to take me on in the HarperImpulse Hottest Heroes Challenge: Week 2 Paranormal and Beyond… I’m up first, so without much further ado, here is my top 5: 1. The ultimate hero: Aragorn. Loyal, brave, he even speaks Elvish and who can forget that moment in The Two Towers when he bursts through the hall doors, wet, a little bit muddy and totally swoon-worthy after his near-drowning?! 2. So the film’s not out until November but early reports – and photos! – indicate that Sam Claflin is totally going to live up to the fantasy that is Finnick…

Charlotte’s Regency Romance

As we’re all about Historical Romance this week, Charlotte’s been reminiscing about the time she found herself invited to a Regency ball. Did she find herself a dashing cravat-wearing historical hottie? Read on… All this talk about Historical heroes has made me think back to when I was lucky enough to work as an intern at Chawton House Library in Hampshire. Home to Edward Austen Knight, the brother of one of my absolute favourite writers, the wonderful Jane Austen, the library is now a centre for 18th century women’s literature as well as being a beautiful Historic house open to the public for all sorts of events including weddings and tours. For six very happy months I was able to lose myself in the collection’s…

Charlotte’s Sexy Historical Heroes

First Kim suggested her top 5, now Charlotte’s here to tell us who she picks as her top sexy historical heroes… Ooo, Kim’s come out strong with some good choices and I have to agree, there aren’t many heroes who can beat Sean Bean as Sharpe – the Yorkshire accent, the uniform…but anyway Charlotte thinks she can keep her Redmaynes and Winstones! 1. Ok, I have to admit, I’ve never really been a fan of Mr Rochester (he came across too old and grumpy for my fickle fourteen year old self). That is until Michael Fassbender donned his breeches! Without doubt my number 1 – the arrogance, the intensity, the broodingness… I’ll even forgive him the dodgy beard at the end. 2. Robert Redford as…
