I look forward to July every year for a number of reasons. There's Independence Day, of course, a day we normally spend with family and friends, celebrating this great country we live in. It's also the month when the big annual Romance Writer's Of America Conference takes place, one of my favorite conferences of the year. This year it's being held in San Diego, a city I've never visited before. So I'm heading out a few days early so I have a chance to 'play tourist' before the conference actually starts. Can't wait!

On the writing front, take a look in the sidebar and you'll see the cover of the eighth book in my Texas Grooms series, Texas Cinderella, which is scheduled to be released in September and is already available for preorder. If you're interested in learning more about the book, just click on the cover. And as for my current project, this next book in the Texas Grooms series is taking some very interesting turns. I'm having a really fun time bringing Hazel and Ward's story to life and can't wait to share it with you all.

Don't forget to take a look at the great guests I have lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.

  • For July, the fabulous Judy Christie will step into my spotlight. You can see her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page.

    Judy has also generously agreed to give away a copy of Wreath, A Girl to one of my lucky newsletter subscribers!   If you haven't already done so, head on over to my CONTEST  page to sign up for my newsletter and be entered to win!

  • In my Industry Spotlight, I'll be featuring freelance editor Jackson D'Lynne (aka Eve Hart) for another month. If you haven't already, be sure to check out her interview on my  INDUSTRY VIP page!

Last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
When you read to a child, when you put a book in a child's hands, you are bringing that child news of the infinitely varied nature of life. You are an awakener.
