CROWN MEDIA FAMILY NETWORKS ANNOUNCES HALLMARK PUBLISHING TO RELEASE ORIGINAL FICTION NOVELS

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - July 26, 2018 - Crown Media Family Networks, one of America's leading media content companies, announces its books division Hallmark Publishing will release four new, original works of fiction beginning this Fall. The announcement was made today as part of Crown Media Family Networks' bi-annual Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.

Hallmark Publishing, which began as an eBook publisher and now offers books in paperback as well, is giving readers more ways to enjoy the kinds of uplifting, family-friendly stories that people enjoy on Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Hallmark Drama and Hallmark Movies Now.

"Our goal is to bring Hallmark's unique and distinctive point of view to fiction, providing more choices for readers who want stories with positive values and happy-ever-after endings," said Stacey Donovan, head of Hallmark Publishing. "Fall and Christmas are an integral part of the Hallmark brand, creating emotional connections that are important drivers of our company's success throughout the year. Our seasonal releases are a great gift for those who want to cozy up to a warm fire and read a new wholesome romance novel during the holidays," Donovan concluded.

The four new fiction novels include:

Sunrise Cabin by Stacey Donovan - available 9/16/18 - A budding romance between an overworked investment banker and a free-spirited first grade teacher is stymied when they both want to buy the same log cabin.

The Christmas Company by Alys Murray - available 10/16/18 - The young heir to an estate decides to stop funding a beloved Christmas festival that brings a town together. A woman who loves the festival sets out to change his mind.

A Timeless Christmas by Alexis Stanton - available 10/21/18 - A tour guide at a historic mansion-turned-museum is startled to meet the house's original owner after he accidentally travels forward in time from the early 1900s.

At the Heart of Christmas by Jill Monroe - available 11/6/18 - A woman trying to revive her family's defunct ornament company enlists the services of a master glass artist. But he's lost his inspiration... and he's hiding a secret that could change both of their lives.

Hallmark novels have the same feel-good vibe as Hallmark movies, and many of the new novels may become Hallmark movies in the future. Each novel comes with an original recipe inspired by the story. Hallmark Publishing plans a robust slate of releases in the categories of romance and mystery for 2019.
