LINDA DANO'S NEWEST STARRING ROLE

 BURLINGTON, Ontario, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Linda Dano, Emmy Award-winning actress, talk-show host and entrepreneur, has agreed to perform six romance stories for Durkin Hayes Publishing Ltd.'s Paperback Audio(TM) format.
 Launching Durkin Hayes into the romance genre of spoken-word audio entertainment, Ms. Dano has chosen the following titles, published by arrangement with Zebra Books, an imprint of Kensington Publishing Corp. of New York:
 -- "A New Life of Her Own" by Marjorie Eatock
 -- "Tidewater Promise" by Jo Goodman
 -- "Repeat Performance" by Stacey Dennis
 -- "A Different Kind of Love" by Jane Bierce
 -- "Listen to Your Mother" by Martha Gross
 -- "When Lilacs Bloom" by Clara Wimberly
 Ms. Dano, herself a fan of books on tape, is preparing for her debut as a celebrity reader as she would for any other theatrical performance. Using only the spoken word, various inflections, and the producer's "stage direction," the noted television actress is preparing to bring the author's characters to life.
 Said Ms. Dano: "In my many years in television and film, I have played a wide range of characters, from my continuing role as the flamboyant Felicia Gallant on NBC's "Another World" to my latest performance as Sandra Drake on the forthcoming Perry Mason television movie "The Case of the Killer Kiss" to be broadcast on NBC on Oct. 22, 1993. For years, I have been an avid listener to this exciting form of entertainment.
 "Traveling as I do from my home in Connecticut to the studio in New York, I have spent hours and hours being entertained by any number of fantastic readers. I'm now enjoying being able to bring my own style to each of the characters created by these authors and giving them yet another dimension."
 Durkin Hayes introduced Paperback Audio(TM) in the Fall of 1992. Retailing at $4.99, the audio cassette feature 60- to 90-minute performances of works by best-selling authors that include Jeffrey Archer, Agatha Christie, Andrew Greeley, Louis L'Amour, Dick Francis, and Ed McBain.

 The romance titles as performed by Linda Dano are scheduled for release commencing October, 1993.
