|RLF Gem Award|
Last month, Romance Lives Forever had 29 posts in a 31 day month. Each month, the RLF Gems post ranks in the top ten, but is not counted, in order to focus on guests. In July, the Independence Day holiday did not feature a guest.
The Top Blogger for July was Sabrina York. She wins a month of free cover advertising on the blog. Our Top Blogger of the Year is publisher Liquid Silver Books, which won a year of free advertising.

Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a blogger's FAQ page with a downloadable guide and six optional interviews. Readers can follow via Google+, Networked Blogs, Linky Followers, email, an RSS feed, and there's a blog button readers and authors can grab. Authors can share previous books. The blog uses author or publisher names as tags on posts, and author Twitter handles in the titles. The site is broadcast over Triberr with a potential reach of over 3.5M readers via its Twitter-linked network. Twitter mentions are also gathered in several Paper.li ezines, giving the author additional opportunities for promotion. The Romance Lives Forever Paper.li ezine features only guest authors, and the day's guest is on its front page every day.
