Happy July! July, of course, is the month for celebrating our country's Independence Day. Many of us will be spending time outdoors - grilling, going to the beach or just hanging with family and friends. But no matter how you celebrate, I hope you'll take a few minutes to both give thanks for being part of this great country, and to pray for its future.

Another reason I love July is that it's the month when the Romance Writers of America hold their annual national conference. This year it is going to be in San Antonio, a city I've never visited before, so I'm especially looking forward to this one. In fact, I may just extend my stay to include some vacation time...

On the writing front, I had a fun time last month visiting lots of different blog sites to celebrate the release of Lone Star Heiress. Now my efforts are focused on developing another Turnabout book. Stay tuned for more details.

Once again I've got some great guests lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.

  • I've been a big-time fan of Pamela Morsi ever since I read her book Garters. Since then I've devoured everything of hers I could find and so I'm tickled pink to have her as my spotlight author this month. You can check out her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page.

    For my July giveaway, Pamela has graciously agreed to offer a copy of her book, Mr. Right Goes Wrong, to one of my lucky newsletter subscribers. So if you're not already subscribed, be sure to click on the newsletter button over on the left side of this page.


  • Holly Lorincz, from the MacGregor Literary Agency, will remain in my Industry Spotlight for the month of July. Look for her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.


And last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highljght reel." ~Steve Furtick
