Tentative First Draft Done Dates for Mitch’s Win and Runaway Bride

At the moment, I am close to finishing both Mitch’s Win and Runaway Bride.  This is thanks to the great writing weekend I just enjoyed.  😀

I’m currently at chapter 19 in this one.  I expect to have one more chapter before this is finished.  It’s realistic to say that I can finish the first draft for this book by the end of this month, which is awesome since it puts me a half month ahead of schedule.

runaway bride

I’m currently at chapter 19 in this one, too, but I expect it to be longer than Mitch’s Win.  Mark and Lexie are now married, and there’s a couple of loose ends to tie up before I can give them their happily ever after.  😀  At the moment, I don’t know how many chapters I expect this book to be, but I think it’ll be either 22 or 23 chapters long when it’s done.  It’s possible I might finish this one by the end of the this month or early next month if I can keep up the pace I’ve been going at.


As for when these will be published, I’m hoping one will be out at the end of March and the other sometime in April.  *fingers crossed*  I don’t know which one will be out when, though.  Part of it depends on when I finish the first draft and how quickly my editing and proofreading team will get through them.

  1. These might be done in time for me to take them on vacation with me. LOL. I like to load up my Kindle before I hit the beach, and I definitely wanted to start your “Across the Stars” series then. The friend I go with would love your books, especially the westerns, so we might have to load her up, too. LOL

    • You’re so sweet. 😀

      BTW, I’m not exactly sure how everything will play out in these books. I know there’s the happy ending, but I’m not sure how to get there. That’s the pantser in me really coming out. LOL (I can’t help but think of your recent post when I go to outline the last couple chapters and realize I have no idea what to put down. Sometimes I can outline at the very end, but it’s hard to with these for some reason. I guess the characters want to make sure they’re in full control.)
