The Dawn of a New Day @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA #RRBC #RWISA



Happy June! Baby birds are hatching in the flowers, baby bunnies are nesting in the herb garden, and the butterfly bushes are doing their job.

I am thrilled to be a part of the RRBC PIPELINE Magazine, and look forward to working with Nonnie, Pat Garcia, and Harriet Hodgson, to continue to provide a monthly publication that our readers find interesting, educational and thought-provoking.  If you have an idea or a suggestion, please send it to me. I’d love to hear from you.

As much as I love the spring flowers and critters, June also brings us Father’s Day, and this month, THE PIPELINE is sharing things that are all about dads, our providers, protectors, nurturers, teachers, disciplinarians, playmates, historians, and heroes. No biological connection is required. As you can see, the roles that dads serve in our lives are endless, but, I’ll cut it off there. To the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, brothers and family friends who hold the hands of the children they consider their own, Happy Father’s Day! And to the dads out there whose “children” have four legs and fur, Happy Father’s Day to you, too!

There’s a lot in the news this month, and Pat has searched the globe to find news we can all use, even if it only serves to put a smile on our face.  Take a minute to scan the headlines and you’ll agree with me.

Spend some time in the Contributor’s Corner. Pat has written an inspiring story in honor of her own dad, entitled “DADDY’S GIRL.” Pat’s father was a strong figure who directed his children on a path to success, even though it sometimes made the journey more difficult.

AT HOME WITH HARRIET is a new addition to THE PIPELINE and we are super excited about all that Harriet will bring us each month. For instance, in honor of this amazing month, Harriet is sharing “GIFT’S FROM MY FATHER,” a lovely story about what her father provided that has made her the success she is today.

The Blog of the Month section belongs to RRBC/RWISA Author, Dennis Cardiff. Beautifully designed, his site it is easy to navigate and filled with exceptional poetry.

Our Book Trailer of the Month feature belongs to “AT THE EDGE OF THE STAIRS,” by RRBC Author, Phil Stephens.  I haven’t had an opportunity to read it yet, but the trailer is awesome!  I did have a chance to read his first novel, “THE ALTER BOY,” and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Four RRBC members have new releases this month. READY, SET, LEAD, by Author, Harriet Hodgson, is a charming poem for children that encourages leadership; THE EDGE OF FEAR by Author, Maura Beth Brennan, is the story of a woman determined to take back what she lost;  NOWHERE BUT UP is another cyber-thriller by Authors, Breakfield and Burkey; and WITH TEARS IN HER EYES is Author, Joy M. Lilley’s first published short story!

There are also some excellent Book of the Month recommendations for June, so I hope you’ll dive right into those and then join us at our monthly book club discussion on Wednesday, June 16th.  

I can’t leave without inviting you to join us for all of our RAVE WAVES shows this month, but the hosts of  LET’S TALK ABOUT IT will feature a special discussion on Kindle Vella, a new story-telling option.  Everyone’s talking about it!  We also have a special guest joining us for the topic.

Until next time, enjoy the issue and keep reading and keep writing!
