A key component of HAN’s success is the presence of Harlequin’s Online Author Liaison, Concierge Services—a role currently being filled by Stephanie Doig. Along with managing HAN content and creating new functionalities within the site, Doig is a hands-on personal contact for authors to reach out to. They contact her with their questions and concerns, knowing that she will provide or pursue solutions for them. “We have a lot planned for HAN,” said Doig. “We are continuously evolving the content based on feedback from our authors to ensure it is the most effective tool possible for them. We believe HAN offers Harlequin authors a tremendous advantage over our competitors, and we expect to see the results of that competitive benefit.”
