July Releases, Sweepstakes Winner, RWA in San Diego and More!

I am thrilled to be sharing a release month with Amy Vastine, Catherine Lanigan and Karen Rock! We had great fun planning the various release-related activities for our readers. One such activity was a preorder sweepstakes.

Congratulations to Stephanie Craig for being our winner!

Currently, we have a joint blog tour underway with TLC Blog Tours. We have 31 exciting stops, with giveaways. You can find the full schedule of stops here.

But that's not all! On July 20th, we will be holding a Facebook party, with special author guests Brenda Novak, Elizabeth Heiter and Roz Denny Fox.

If you haven't registered already, you can do so here. We'd love to see you at the party. Of course, we'll have fun events and lots of giveaways! The prize packs I will be giving away are shown in the picture below...and each author will have their own giveaways, too!

Next, I would like to share some pictures from the RWA 2016 conference in San Diego. It was wonderful seeing good friends and making new ones. A highlight of the event each year is the Harlequin party, and this year didn't disappoint.

Despite the full schedule of events and workshops, we were able to find some time to relax and enjoy beautiful San Diego.

The picture on the bottom right is of an inscription on the window of the roof-top lounge at the Hyatt. Isn't it appropriate for Heartwarming authors?!

Those of you who have read any of the books in my K-9 trilogy know that they are set in San Diego. In fact, many of the scenes in When I Found You, my July release, are set at the San Diego airport. Although the airport in the book is fictionalized, I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the actual airport when I arrived.

Perhaps these pictures will help you better visualize some of the settings in the story!


On the topic of When I Found You, I am currently on tour with Prism Book Tours. Although the tour is well underway, you can still visit any of the stops. The schedule of stops can be found here. This is the prize pack up for grabs:

In case you are wondering what Harley and Logan were up to while I was in San Diego, they had a blast at their "country club," and made some new friends in the process.

Best wishes and happy reading!
