white8 In addition to recovering from a fun and fast-paced RWA 2011, today is Independence Day for all of our American staffers and readers. So, while the reviews are updated, today we’re going to take a little break on the news blog and celebrate the holiday. Happy Independence Day to all of our American readers, and we hope everyone overseas is having a wonderful Monday as well!

And one last thing: Without any prompting from me whatsoever, several people all mentioned the same thing to me at RWA so here’s my little message of the day –

BRING BACK COLONIAL AND REVOLUTIONARY WAR ROMANCES!
