Harlequin Pink

I went to the library last night to raid the teen/YA section and get a handle on all of the new books. Among my picks- the fabulous Lauren Barnholdt's Reality Chick and How to Ruin a Summer Vacation by another author (I forget her name). As I was browsing the YA scection, I came across Harlequin Pink- a line of manga (comic book) romances for tweens and teens. Apparently, they've been out since 2004, but I've never seen them. Anyone else heard of these? It's important to me to write for all different genres so I may see what it takes to write one. I know you don' t have to illustrate, which I could NEVER do. The books are written in the most adorable, brightest pink ink and I haven't read them yet, but plan to soon.

Today's projects: printing graduation announcements, writing my piece for Girls' Life, hoping RAW calls and writing papers for school.

Finally, a BIG SHOUT OUT to friend and fellow writer Diana Peterfreund for having Secret Society Girl chosen as one of the New York Public Library's Books for the Teen Age 2007. Congratulations, Diana!

I've heard of them yet I have never seen them. What are they like?
They're quite adorable. The are in the hottest pink ink and are adapted from published romances. I just learned that the Harlequin Pink is for younger girls and the Harlequin Violet is for girls ages 16 and older. You should check them out.

Hi! I was surfing various weblogs and stumbled across your post.

Harlequin Pink and Violet are basically English versions of the Japanese manga adaptations made for various Harlequin novels.

If you're interested in reading more manga to see what makes them tick, Tokyopop puts out a few original English language manga (though I think the new label is Original Global Manga). :)
Thanks for stopping by, Vernieda! I was confused about the manga and thanks for giving me that info. :)
