The digital team last summer (Victoria, Emma, Lindsey, and Brendan) reading some of the Treasury books!
If there is one piece of advice I could give people considering joining the digital aspect of publishing, it would be this: prepare to buckle your seatbelt, because you are in for a wild and glorious ride.
Back when I was a wee and innocent thing I was brought on to the Harlequin team to help out on a little project known as Treasury, where we digitized (give or take) 3,000 backlist books. And let me tell you, you have not lived until you have typed up the back covers of thousands of 90s-tastic romance novels. If only words could express the gems we rediscovered. So many marriages of convenience, so many cases of amnesia…
Since that time, I have become fully enmeshed in the digital world. It is fast, it is furious, it is constantly evolving, and we must constantly evolve with it. But it is a challenge I happily face every day, if only for the chance to dive into the archives yet again and dig up such beauties as Operation: Gigolo and Single, Sexy…Sold!
