Book Stephannie Beman and I are working on.

Thanks to my editor and my beta reader, I am in the final stages of polishing up this book. After that, it goes to Stephannie Beman who’ll give it the final read through.  Everything’s on track for publication in December.

The Anthology Janet Syas Nitsick and I Are Working On

I can’t remember if I said I was finished with the first draft, but I am.

Good news on this book.  I was stalled out but then things suddenly picked up.  I’m currently around the halfway point.  I didn’t see a certain plot twist coming my way, which is what makes it a lot more fun.  I like it when the unexpected twist happens.  I’m hoping to have the first draft done at the end of November or early December.  With any luck, I’ll be releasing this around the 1st of January.  😀

This one is about halfway done, too.  I did slow down the pace a little bit because I know where I want to be but am not exactly sure how to get there.  Neither Boaz nor Eva have cooperated with me.  And worse than that, neither one is really giving me much direction on how they want me to go.

I don’t know if I announced I was working on this one, but I decided to start it because I’m afraid I’ll forget the wager that was made in His Reluctant Lady.  With this book, I introduce some new characters.  I’m not sure how much of an overlap there will be with previous characters in this series, but I’m already starting to figure out a new plot for another book to go after this one.  It’ll involve the hero’s best friend.

I figured I’d better start this one while the characters from Catching Kent were fresh in my mind.  Plus, I really liked Rose’s twin sister Harriett and Stan.  It’s a challenge to pair up a couple who had a lousy start in another books, and Harriett and Stan definitely qualify since she did try to win him over in Catching Kent but failed.

It’s time I got to this one out.  I have the entire plot mapped out in my mind, but it’s been difficult getting it down because Amanda has to go through a lot of pain because things can get better, and it’s hard to watch one of my characters when they’re going through a horrible situation.  But it’s the only way Richard is going to marry her to take her with his family to Nebraska.

    Wow and good luck! I’m really excited to read these!

    I look at your sidebar and feel like such a slacker. You have all these projects and actually have a substantial amount of words in each!

    Congrats on the new books coming up!

    • Well, it helps that the kids are in school and I get to set aside a nice block of time where I write. After they get home, I go through edits. However, I have been slacking on the blogs and emails. I tend to go in spurts. At times, I can write a lot more than at others, and knowing January is coming is a huge motivator to get things going.
