Happy Ninth Birthday PHS!

The Pink Heart Society is celebrating nine years on the web today!

Nine years is a long time for a blog to have been going, and it couldn't have been done without all of our fantastic columnists and without you, dear reader, of course!

We're also thrilled to have four new columnists joining us this year:

Kimani author, AlTonya Washington; Heartwarming author Melinda Curtis, Love Inspired author Jill Kemerer, and Historical author Nicole Locke! It's fantastic to have them as part of our PHS family!! :-)

If you're joining us for the first time, check out our daily themes below, giving you the lowdown on what to expect from your friendly PHS columnists and guest authors each day:

Male On Monday - It's been our most popular day since the PHS started so, don't worry, authors will still bring us eye candy hero inspiration to start the week. Think there's someone we've missed or should revisit, let us know in the comments or by email. Monday is all about sharing.

Tuesday Talk-Time - Discussions about the state of the industry and how it effects readers, the relevance of romance to modern day women, diversity in category romance-this will be the day for exercising the little grey cells. Got a topic you'd like us to cover or something you'd like to contribute, again let us know in the comments or by email.

Writers' Wednesday - Another popular day at the PHS and one we plan to continue with writing tips, career info and advice for the care & well-being of an author. This where we pay it forward!

Time-Out Thursday - Ever wondered what writers do when they take time out from the keyboard? This is where authors share some of their passions, show us their creative endeavors in other areas and give us a little glimpse of their lives. It's the PHS version of looking through the keyhole.

Friday Fun - Here, we'll talk about TV shows/Films to watch, what we're reading and the heroes we wish existed in real life. There may be some tongue-in-cheek debate, discussions of problems only an avid romance reader will understand and possibly even relationship advice men could pick up from the books they avoid. It'll be a pretty mixed bag, but if we give you something to watch/read at the weekend or leave you with a smile on your face, we'll be happy Pink Hearters.

A Little Something For The Weekend - Writer's Workspaces, Call Stories, how an author found inspiration or details of what they're working on now. This is where you'll find our bonus content. And this could be your chance to join usIf you're an author who would like to visit us, or a reader with something to say, we want to hear from you. 

Is there anything in our line up you're excited about or would like us to explore? Head to the comments and help us celebrate. We'll see you there!

We'd like to take this opportunity to raise a glass to all of The Pink Heart Society editors, columnists and guests who have supported us over the years.  We'd also like to thank YOU for continuing to visit us.


And here's to many more!
