Harlequin Enterprises Limited
Harlequin Enterprises Limited is the global leader in series romance and one of the world's leading publishers of women's fiction. The Toronto-based company publishes over 115 titles a month in 25 languages in 94 international markets on six continents. These books are written by over 1,300 talented authors worldwide, offering women a broad range of reading from romance to psychological thrillers to relationship novels. With 131 million books sold in 2005—half overseas and a tremendous 96% outside Canada—it is both the country's most successful publisher and one of its most international businesses. Harlequin promotes its global presence through principal offices in Toronto, New York, London, Tokyo, Milan, Sydney, Paris, Madrid, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Athens, Budapest, Granges-Paccot, Warsaw and Rio de Janeiro. The company also has licensing agreements with businesses in another nine countries. Harlequin's worldwide level of recognition and appeal provides the publisher with the unique opportunity of promoting and selling its authors around the world, wherever and whenever women shop. Harlequin's success in 2005 confirms that the company is moving toward its stated goal of being the world's leading publisher of women's fiction. Harlequin titles appeared on the New York Times bestseller lists for a record 188 weeks—an increase of 20 percent over 2004. Since its inception, Harlequin has shipped approximately 5.22 billion books. Harlequin Enterprises is unique in the women's fiction market, combining highly recognizable imprints—Harlequin, Silhouette, MIRA Books, Red Dress Ink, LUNA Books, HQN Books, Steeple Hill Books, Steeple Hill Café, Kimani Press, Spice and Harlequin Ginger Blossom—a global reach, a highly successful reader service and an innovative Web site (eHarlequin.com) that allows the company to move further and further into the forefront of women's fiction. Ultimately, however, it is the fact that Harlequin creates entertaining and enriching experiences for women to enjoy, to share and return to that drives the company's success and enables Harlequin to push the boundaries of women's fiction.
