Mavis Allen promoted

From Linda Gill, General Manager, Kimani Romance:

It is with great pleasure that I announce the promotion of Mavis Allen to Senior Editor for Kimani Romance.
Mavis began her career at Harlequin as an Editor for Silhouette Desire in 2001, and over the next few years contributed to many core series programs before becoming Associate Senior Editor of Silhouette Romance in 2003. Over the past year, Mavis effectively launched Kimani Romance -- one of the most successful series launches for Harlequin. In addition, she strategically published Friends:A Love Story by Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance which reached NYT and Essence bestseller lists, and garnered national publicity for
Harlequin on Oprah, Rachel Ray and other media outlets. She works with Brenda Jackson, Donna Hill, Gwynne Forster, and Adrianne Byrd, all of whom are leading authors in African-American romance, as well as many other growth and debut authors in the marketplace today.

Please join me in congratulating her.

Linda Gill


It couldn't have happened to a nicer, more deserving person--and I don't write for her! Congratulations Mavis and much continued success!
