WINNIE GRIGGSHello everyone. Summer is definitely in full swing around here. Temperatures are in the 90s, reruns are on television and everyone's thoughts turn to vacation. For me, it also means lots of travel. A fun family vacation is on the horizon (more on that next time) and then there's the big Romance Writers of America annual conference. I'll be giving a workshop there this year along with my fabulous editor, Michelle Grajkowski, and one of the wonderful Love Inspired editors, Tina James. And this year the conference is in one of my favorite cities to visit - New York. Since my daughters have never been to the big apple, I'm treating them to a trip there with me.
It's going to be a fun - but very busy - month!

On the writing front, I have something a little different to announce this time. Back in the spring I took a little break from my Texas Grooms series and penned a novella for a collection title Journeys Of The Heart. My story in this collection, The Road Home, is one I've had on my mind for a number of years so I was happy to be able finally give life to it. If you'd like to learn more about the book, you can check it out at this link Journeys Of The Heart

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

  • This month Susan Sands is stepping into my author spotlight! You can see her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page!
  • For the month of July, Cheryl Pierson, Managing Editor for Prairie Rose Publications, will remain in my Industry Spotlight. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, look for her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.

And last but not least, here's my quote for the month. This is very insightful
I'm thankful for serendipitous moments in my life, where things could've gone the other way.
