Summer 2017  

Friends:

Thanks to all of you who have picked up a copy of RUMORS AT COURT. The book has gotten some lovely reviews, including 5-Stars from Caitlyn Lynch. Jayne at Dear Author wrote: ‘How the characters are woven into the actual historical events is well done and something different for those looking for a character centered story …” Lisa Fernandes at All About Romance said: “Rumors at Court flows along quite beautifully, and is a romantic, well-researched treat of a novel.”

Reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever you post, are pure gold to a writer in this internet age, so I thank all of you who have taken time to share your thoughts on any of my books. It makes a big difference!

This month, I’ll be at the annual Romance Writers of America conference in Orlando, Florida and participating in the literacy signing. . This is a wonderful event. All proceeds go to ProLiteracy and the Florida Literacy Coalition, so in addition to having the opportunity to meet hundreds authors, you know the funds are going to a good cause. If you are in the area, I hope you’ll stop by. The schedule is a bit different this year and the Literacy Signing will be on Saturday afternoon instead of Wednesday night. That should make it easier for people to attend. The details:

Saturday, July 29
3-5 p.m.
Orlando Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort

August is “Read a Romance Month” and I will be one of the featured authors. Don’t know what date yet, but you can check out the entire calendar here http://www.readaromancemonth.com/ once it is posted. There will be giveaways, so do follow along during the month.

I hope you will become part of my Facebook “family.” I post at facebook.com/BlytheGifford once or twice a week.

May your summer be full of sunshine and books!

All my best,
