STUDIO CITY, CA – March 13, 2018 – Hallmark Publishing, a division of Crown Media Family Networks, announces it will begin selling printed novels beginning March 20.
“Based on overwhelming demand from our Hallmark fans, I am delighted to announce that, in addition to our popular ebooks, readers of Hallmark’s romance stories will now be able to buy physically printed books,” said Stacey Donovan, head of Hallmark Publishing.
“Hallmark Publishing will now offer all books as both an eBook and a paperback, available at Amazon.com, and with many more retailers to follow soon,” Donovan concluded.
Current books include: Love Locks, Moonlight in Vermont, A Dash of Love, A Heavenly Christmas, Love You Like Christmas, Christmas in Homestead, and Journey Back to Christmas. The Perfect Catch will be available on March 27. Each of these titles is based on a Hallmark Channel or Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original movie, which gives readers an opportunity to go more in depth on story, as well as characters’ thoughts, feelings, and memories. All books also have epilogues that reveal a bit more about what happens “after the kiss,” and contain a bonus recipe inspired by the story.
Hallmark Publishing eBooks will continue to be available through iTunes, BarnesAndNoble.com, and Kobo.com, in addition to Amazon.com.
