Coming Attractions




The temperature outside is rising, so take a break, grab a cold drink, and join us at the Romance Dish! We have a lot of terrific guest authors lined up along with some wonderful reviews, regular monthly blogs, and as always, prizes galore!






PJ interviews Romance Bandit and contemporary author Anna Sugden tomorrow, Tuesday, July 1st. Anna’s upcoming book, A Perfect Trade, is the second book in her New Jersey Ice Cats series and hits shelves tomorrow!









On Wednesday, July 2nd, J Perry Stone brings us a Q&A with her friend and fantasy author Anna Steffl. Anna’s most recent release, Solace Shattered, is book 2 in her Solace trilogy and is garnering some rave reviews!






Grab a pen and paper to jot down your favorite July books from Andrea’s New Releases list on Friday, July 4th!






Be sure to drop by on Monday, July 7th, as PJ offers another round of Beach Bag Bonanza Reviews and packages of books to give away!









Aussie and contemporary romance author Amy Andrews is interviewed by PJ on Tuesday, July 8th. I’m sure they will dish about Amy’s upcoming romantic comedy, Risky Business!






Make Your Reservations on Thursday, July 10th, as we let you know which books we are most looking forward to in August.






Stop by on Monday, July 14th, and check out PJ’s Q&A with award-winning husband and wife duo V.K. Sykes! V.K’s upcoming book, Payoff Pitch, is the fifth book of their USA Today best-selling Philadelphia Patriots series.







We are thrilled to welcome historical author Kate Noble to the blog on Thursday, July 17th! Kate’s upcoming book, The Game and the Governess, is the first in a new series and releases July 22nd. And don’t forget to pick up her newest book (writing as Kate Rorick), The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, which is based on the Emmy award-winning YouTube series, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!






We will be on vacation here at the Dish from July 21st – July 27th because Romance Writers of America®’s 34th Annual Conference is at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter & Marriott Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX from Wednesday, July 23rd–Saturday, July 26th! PJ will be attending the conference this year and will be taking a lot of pictures and getting a ton of goodies to give away here at the Romance Dish. She plans to post updates from the conference on Twitter (https://twitter.com/TheRomanceDish) and our TRD Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/theromancedish). So if you haven’t already, be sure to follow and “like” us! If you live near San Antonio, please stop by the huge “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing on Wednesday, July 23rd from 5:30-7:30 pm in the 3rd floor ballroom. Over 500 authors will be signing books! Check here for a complete list of participating authors. The event is open to the public and proceeds from book sales go to literacy organizations.


We hope you'll join us!

    1. I've been to San Antonio once before but it was a business trip so my Riverwalk time was limited. I'm looking forward to more extensive exploring this time around.

      I'm in the middle of reading Payoff Pitch. It's another winner! :)

  3. Ooh, have a great time at the conference! I look forward to having Anna S. here at TRD. She seems like a peach, and I'm excited for her Distraction releases!
    It is always so fun to pop in here, even if I don't always comment. Thanks for the "cool" July events. ;)

    1. Anna Sugden is a sweetheart, Deb. I'll try to get some photos of her in San Antonio to share in my post-RWA blogs here at TRD.
      I hope you enjoy her new book. It's a winner!

  4. I'm looking forward to reading the interview with Anna Sugden too! We interviewed her for our French web magazine when A Perfect Distraction came out in French with that amazing cover...

    1. The French cover of A Perfect Distraction is very sigh-worthy. I don't know who that cover model is but he could grace the cover of every book I buy and I'd be perfectly happy. :)
