Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes!

Do you know any real-life heroines?

Heroine; a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.


Each year, the Harlequin More Than Words award is given to three women who have worked hard to change people’s lives for the better. Inspired by their accomplishments, Harlequin donates $15,000 to each winner's charity of choice and then pairs each winner with a bestselling Harlequin author who turns her story into a novella that's released to the public as a free e-book.

Nominations for the 2014 awards have just opened and will be open until August 9th. To nominate someone you know who is making a difference in the world, or to nominate yourself, you need to submit a few sentences on the nominee, the charity she's involved in, what inspires her and how she's inspiring others. 

The nomination form is available here:

Nominations close in August and entrants are narrowed down to 5 finalists 
Public votes for 3 winners in November
Winners are announced in December
*honored through the $15,000 donation
*the novella written about them
*feature coverage on Harlequin's site!

It's a great program to honor all of the women who spend their time and energy doing things for others and might not be getting the recognition they deserve!
