We're Sweet and Heartwarming!

July is upon us!  And so is the Romance Writers of America's annual conference, kicking off Wednesday, July 23!  To celebrate romance (especially Sweet Romance!), the Harlequin Heartwarming Authors are kicking off a four week promotion to celebrate Sweet and Heartwarming Romance!
As part of our celebration, we're giving away bracelets (like the one shown above) to readers, reviewers, and other authors who tell us they love Sweet and Heartwarming Romance!

You have two ways to win:

  1. Tell us via social media how much you love Sweet and Heartwarming Romance! Post a comment here. Post a comment on our Facebook page under our Sweet and Heartwarming Posts (and like us!). Share our post on Facebook with the #GoHeartwarming hashtag. Tweet about our giveaway: I love Sweet and Heartwarming Romance! #GoHeartwarming. Spread the word on Goodreads. Every comment/post/share/like/tweet/hashtag is an entry. We'll track entries each week!  We're giving away 50 bracelets to our social media supporters during the month of July!  
  2. To our sweet romance fans and our writing sisters who'll be attending either the RWA Literacy Booksigning July 23rd in San Antonio at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter OR attending the RWA conference July 23-26, if you come across a Harlequin Heartwarming Author wearing a pin like the one shown below (green beads and the distinctive "H"), all you have to do is say: I love Sweet and Heartwarming Romance! And you're an instant winner!

We know Heartwarming goes anywhere. Check back here and on Facebook to see just where we go and what fun we have!
#GoHeartwarming

Entry Rules: Social media entries totaled each week.  Weekly winners chosen from those participating in social media that week (not cumulatively). Enter as often as you like, but you can only win once. Contest open to those in the United States only.  Weekly winners will be posted Monday afternoon on this blog. Weekly award schedule: 10 awarded on July 7, 10 on July 14, 10 on July 21, and 20 on July 28!

  4. What I love about Heartwarming - the first thought that comes to mind is that I don't have to worry about blushing when I read a sex scene during lunch at work.
    The second thing is (having just read 2 back to back) is realizing how much I don't miss reading a sex scene. That a romance can be really really really good without that.
    Plus, I laughed during the two I read.
    Now that's what I love about Heartwarming!

    1. Hey, Marcie,
      The Harlequin community certainly counts! If you post there, copy and paste the link here (or at least post that you shared it there). You can post every week!

  6. I love Harlequin Heartwarming!! It's nice reading books that I can share with family and friends without worrying about offending them. Also, the stories are sweet and leave you feeling good at the end.
    I will share as much as I can via social media.

  7. And the Heartwarming authors actually warm the heart both in and out of their books! My favorite Heartwarming author Kate James has been so generous with her advice and encouragement that it's no wonder she's so great at writing Heartwarming books. Thanks again Kate!

  10. Wish I was going to RWA this year maybe next year! I'm happy to see the Sweet and Heartwarming Series are such a hit. Nice to hear others feel the same way about stories that have a real story. .
