What happened to summer? Here in the southeast U.S. we're approaching the end of vacation as we have only two weeks left until school is back in session. Rather than mourning the end of summer, with the kids back in class, moms everywhere will be able to catch up with those books that have been languishing in wait since June. Hmmm. Maybe, the appropriate phrase should be, "Let the celebration begin!"
Here at TRD, we're prepared to help you celebrate August with blog posts, interviews, reviews, spotlights, blog tours and more. And don't forget the giveaways! I brought a lot of books home from the RWA conference that are ready and willing to fly away to good homes. Here's what's on tap for this month.
We kick off the month on Monday, August 4th with Andrea's list of new releases. I can't wait to see what books will be out this month!
Don't miss Monday, August 11th when fantasy romance author and Dish reviewer Nancy Northcott interviews her good friend, contemporary author Jesse Hayworth. The newest book in Hayworth's heartwarming Mustang Ridge series, Harvest at Mustang Ridge will be released August 5th.
On Wednesday, August 13th we welcome the Catherine Bybee Taken by Tuesday blog tour. The fifth book in Bybee's Weekday Brides series, Taken by Tuesday will be released on August 12th and promises plenty of thrills and chills.
PJ is excited to introduce readers to 2014 Golden Heart Award winner Lenora Bell on Friday, August 15th. Lenora won the award for Best Historical Romance manuscript and will be blogging about her journey to the Golden Heart.
Maggie Robinson returns Tuesday, August 19th to blog about The Reluctant Governess, the third book in her Ladies Unlaced series. Fans of the series will be excited to learn what happens when the Evensong Agency secretary, Eliza Lawrence is pressed into service as a reluctant governess.
On Thursday, August 21st we welcome our own Anna Campbell's blog tour for Anna's August 26th release of What a Duke Dares. This historical romance is garnering some terrific pre-release reviews!
Anna will return on Sunday, August 24th (which happens to be her birthday!) for her monthly Second Helping book review. We look forward to welcoming her back after a month's vacation.
We hope you will join us for these guests and more as we celebrate August at The Romance Dish!
