This summer we Harlequin Historical authors heard that our books would be shelved with the single title books at the Barnes and Noble stores. This was terrific information, because we often feel that some readers would never think to find us at the Harlequin displays, usually separate from the alphabetical shelving.
Last week I checked at my local Barnes and Noble. Harlequin Historicals were, indeed, not to be found with the other Harlequin books. Instead, they were shelved at the very end of the alphabetical single titles, down on the bottom shelf.
I’m not sure if this is an improvement….
1. Where do you buy Harlequin Historicals and where are they shelved in your stores?
2. If you couldn’t find them in your store, would you ask for them?
3. Where do you think is the best place for them?
Inquiring minds want to know!
