Welcome to August! I will confess I’m happy to put July in the rearview mirror. I hope those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying your summer, and staying cool if you’re dealing with extreme heat. My family spent July tag-teaming the catching of winter illnesses, including the one with cold symptoms that we all hope will disappear forever ASAP. I’m looking forward to spring next month, and an improvement in my overall health. So far this winter it has been cold, but we haven’t seen any snow where I live in Australia. If it does snow during August, which can sometimes happen, I’ll be sure to let you know.
August is always an exciting month at Inspy Romance because our Back to School Giveaway launches on August 15. Be sure to visit the blog, and stay tuned for more information.
I also have bunches of virtual flowers to share if you’re struggling with illness, difficult circumstances, grief, and other hardships. Grief is hard, and my thoughts and prayers are with many of my author and reader friends this weekend.
Paula Marie, friend to Christian fiction authors and readers, passed away August 5, 2022. She was best known as the founder of a review blog, Fiction Full of Faith, and absolutely loved sharing Christian books with others. If you would like to share memories with Paula’s friends and family, please visit this memorial group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/rememberingpaulamarie
