Updates on What I’m Doing

1.  I’ll be doing another giveaway soon.  

I’m thinking of suing Dave and Mary for pain and suffering.  Rick Johnson would be the judge who hears the case with witnesses to testify for and against my side.  😉  If I go this route, I’m trying to think of a fun angle to go with the giveaway.  If anyone has any ideas on how to make this fun, feel free to tell me.

2.  The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife is back from the editor!

I still need to work on it, but it’s pretty much done.  😀

3.  Her Heart’s Desire is also back from the editor.

Actually, I got it back first.  In fact, I am only on chapter two in working through what the editor found.  I put this book on hold for the past two weeks because I got caught up in finishing the rewrite of The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife and then tweaking on Suddenly a Bride.  I decided to get a new cover for Suddenly a Bride to (hopefully) reflect the fact that it involves a hero who came from another planet.  So….

4.  Here’s the new cover for Suddenly a Bride:

5.  I’m going to start posting Isaac’s Decision on my story blog.

I’ll start this tomorrow.  I’m going to get the blog ready for it tonight.

  1. I’m really excited that The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife is almost ready! I’m anxious to read that one. I really like the cover for Suddenly a Bride. The premise sounds very interesting!

    • Thanks! I was told by my editor that she wanted to slap the heroine for wanting to go back to her family as much as she did, so now I know this will be one of those books that people will either love or hate. The editor did enjoy the book, but I can already tell the type of reviews I’ll get from this one. But I’ve learned you can’t please everyone all the time, and if a character wants to be a certain way, you got to let the story proceed as it wants to. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. 😀

    Oh Wow!!! I like the cover for Suddenly a Bride…….Very Nice!!! I’m loving it! All those elements just work well together…
    How bout for the Court Case we can all supply questions or comments or eyewitness accounts to Rick concerning Dave’s guilt or innocence… or witnessing your pain and suffering… We’ll be the witnesses…lol or we can be the jury ….lol either way It sounds like fun!! lol

    • I was hoping to tell people it has a sci-fi (minor as it is) aspect to it. I don’t know if this will gather more interest in the book or not, but so far, very few people want to buy it. It’s one of my favorite stories, but it’s the book that sells the worst. I don’t know why. We’ll see if the cover does the trick.

      I like your Court Case idea. I really like the idea of playing the jury. Then you guys can decide if Dave and Mary are guilty or innocent, and when people vote, I can count that toward an entry into the giveaway. 😀 Thanks for the great idea!

  3. Love the new cover of Suddenly a Bride. 😀

    • Thanks! It took about three days. I notice that’s my average time in making a cover. hehe

      • No need to rush a great cover. I know if I get to rushed the cover isn’t as nice as it could be. 😀

        • Yep. Rushing anything is a bad idea. I had to force myself away from rushing the last chapter and a half of editing tonight. My mind just isn’t in it, and as much as I want to get it done, I was making errors while I was trying to edit the book. Not good. LOL

  4. Love the new cover for Suddenly a Bride! Wont you PLEASE reconsider keeping Runaway Bride as a contemporary???? I’ve been waiting forever for it to come out.

    • I have considered it throughly and I’m sorry. My writing is both an art form and a business, and since my contemporaries don’t sell, I not only lose money by writing them but the creative flow doesn’t happen. I’ve tried to write the story and it just won’t come. Maybe if the sales of Suddenly a Bride pick up, I will feel the motivation to write Runaway Bride as a contemporary, but please don’t get your hopes up that this will happen.
