Coming Attractions






Okay, raise your hands if you can't believe 2015 is already half over. How can this be possible? I still have too many January - June books to read! Ah well, no matter how hard I try to slow down time, the calendar pages keep flipping and here we are welcoming the month of July. Here's what's on the Romance Dish schedule.




Thursday, July 2 brings RITA® nominee Patience Griffin back to the Dish. Griffin's debut, To Scotland with Love is a double finalist for Best First Book and Best Contemporary Romance:Long. Her newest book, Some Like it Scottish is the third book in her Kilts and Quilts series and hits the shelves July 7.







On Friday, July 3, I'll be sharing photo memories of the 2010 RWA National Conference at Disney World. There be prizes. :)






On Monday, July 6, Janga will share her most anticipated historical romances being published from July - December, 2015. I can feel my bank account draining already!







I go back to New York City and the 2011 RWA National Conference on Wednesday, July 8 with this week's stroll down a pictorial memory lane.





The Jill Shalvis Second Chance Summer tour rolls into town on Thursday, July 9. This contemporary romance about second chances kicks off Shalvis' new Cedar Ridge series.







Janga returns Wednesday, July 15 with a review of a reissued romance in her July On Second Thought column.





Don't miss my Q&A with RITA® finalist, Nancy Herkness on Thursday, July 16. Herkness is a finalist in the Contemporary Romance:Long category with her novel, The Place I Belong. She'll be joining us on the 16th to talk about her new book, The CEO Buys In which kicks off a new series on July 21.










Vanessa Kelly stops by on Friday, July 17 to talk about the newest addition to her Renegade Royals series, How to Marry a Royal Highlander. The book hits stores today!







On Saturday, July 18, I wrap up my look back at RWA National with photo highlights of the 2013 conference in Atlanta.

The week of July 20th I'll be in New York City for the 2015 RWA National Conference. Be sure to follow me during the conference at the Romance Dish Facebook page and stop by the last week of the month for my conference recap.

Kick back, grab a cold drink, a good book, and let's have a great month of July!

  1. Another great lineup for the month. I may avoid Janga's post on the 6th. I can't catch up with all the books I want to read.

    I met Patience Griffin at RT this year and she was a delightful woman to talk with. I got TO SCOTLAND WITH LOVE but haven't yet opened all the boxes from RT and found it. I let her know I discovered her book here on the Dish. I am looking forward to reading it and using it as a travel guide for the part of Scotland in which it is set.

    1. I met Patience at last year's RWA conference. She's a delight and I love her writing. To Scotland With Love was one of my top books of 2014.

  3. Amazing how quickly the year is passing. Especially when my to read tower of books isn't going as quickly as the year. :) I still have to read Patience Griffin's second book. I really enjoyed To Scotland With Love. Thanks for the post.

    1. I know what you mean about the tower of books, Carol. I'm reading a lot of books but the tower keeps growing! lol

      I just finished reading Griffin's newest, Some Like it Scottish and fell head over heels for the hero, Ramsay. This one has plenty of emotion (like the first two) but a much lighter tone with lots of wonderful humor.

  4. I love the lineup of author visits and can't wait for the RWA revisits and news of the 2015 conference. I'll consider each post part of a Joyous July celebration of my birthday month. :) Of course, every month at TRD is majorly marvelous!

  7. I have about 40 books in my to-be-read pile and that's the paperbacks and hardbacks. Not sure how many more on my Kindle! Now today Melody Anne, Laura Kaye, and Lena Diaz have new books out! Help!
