Awesome July!

Happy July to all and an early Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans! This month is already looking as awesome as a firework display :).

First, yesterday marked the launch of Harlequin Heartwarming's all new stories line up! In the past, the line was in a test phase, where previously published Harlequins (various home and hearth lines) were revised to fit the line's requirements. Last month, out of the 4 monthly releases, two were prev. pubbed books, and two were brand new. This month, they're all brand new stories and many are/will be by debut authors! Very exciting!

Secondly, it's RWA Nationals month and, as if that isn't awesome in and of itself, this time I'll be going as a PAN member, Harlequin author...and I get to wear a first sale ribbon! Yay! I'm so excited.

Thirdly, FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS!!!! I seriously love July 4th and all it's about. Plus, I'm absolutely crazy about fireworks.  I'm not talking about sparklers. I know they're fun but I've also seen a lot of eye injuries, so do be careful. I'm talking about the big sky display. I live in the country so they look extra brilliant against the dark sky. There's a park near us with a massive field and every year there's a live band, festivities and then an extraordinary fireworks show. Love it!

So I'm wishing you all a terrific July. What are you're plans?


  1. I wish I was going to the Nationals this year. This is the first I won't be. But I will be going next year.

    Hope you have an awesome time as a PAN member, and enjoy the fireworks this week.

  2. Have the best 4th of July ever, Rula!

    Ours will be fairly quiet, but we'll be having a couple groups of houseguests during the month, so the quiet start is a good thing :)

  3. Stina - Wish you were going, but San Antonio will be an awesome location. I love the River Walk there.

    Carol - Quiet is always a good thing :). Happy 4th and have a super time to yourselves!

  4. My Fourth was...insane. But a good insane. :)
    Party at our house then fireworks on the beach. I was exhausted. Luckily, I had three days to recover. LOL

  5. Jennifer - Funny how holidays can be more tiring that routine days, even if they're considered to be 'time off'.
