Friday Feature & PRINT Giveaway: Harlequin Authors’ Early Summer Rituals

While not everyone has a special ritual to prepare for summer, three of Harlequin’s authors do!

Martha Kennerson: I live in Texas and it’s always warm so for me it’s about avoiding allergy triggers. On good days, I’m enjoying hanging outside by the pool or going down to the beach.

Delores Fossen: I love taking walks to clear my head, and sometimes that’s exactly what I need to work out any problems I’m having with the story I’m writing.

Sharon Kendrick: When the weather starts getting warmer, I get out and walk in the countryside. I love listening to the sounds of the birds and watching all the flowers coming into bloom. Whatever the weather, I get something out of it. Walking doesn’t cost anything and often you won’t see another person for hours and hours – it fills me with an incredible sense of freedom, as well as making me grateful to be alive. Oh, and it helps give me inspiration if my story has reached an infuriatingly stubborn point!
