The book that’s taken most of my attention is Boaz’s Wager. This is book 2 in the Montana Collection. Mitch’s Win is the first one and Patty’s Gamble will be book 3. At the moment, I am in chapter twenty-one. I finally got through all the rewrites I had to do, switched some scenes around, and modified most of them. Now I’m back on track to finishing it.
I am hoping to have the first draft done in two weeks or less. This puts it on track for a mid-March release. 😀
I am also working on Patty’s Gamble. After this, the Montana Collection will be complete. Patty’s Gamble takes place during the same time Boaz’s Wager does. I’m only at chapter 2 so there’s still plenty more to go in this one. I want to get this one out before June. *fingers crossed*
In the meantime, I am working on a mail-order bride story. I’ve been wanting to do one for over a year and am finally getting around to it. This takes place in the Black Hills of South Dakota in the late 1800s. I went there last year and really enjoyed the scenery so I thought it’d be fun to write a romance that takes place there.
The basic plot is that the heroine happened to stumble upon a mail-order bride who was on her way to meet Allen Grover, but she got sick and died before she could complete her journey. So the heroine (who’s desperate to escape her life at a brothel) assumes the other woman’s identity and becomes Al’s mail-order bride. But the woman who was supposed to marry him has some secrets and those are going to catch up to the heroine before all is said and done. I can’t say too much or I’ll spoil the book. 😀
At the moment, I am in chapter 5. I have this book tentatively scheduled for release in April or May. We’ll see how things progress.
I put this one on hold while I was doing the rewrites for Boaz’s Wager, but I should be back to writing this book in the upcoming week. I’m currently at chapter 6. This will probably be out around the summer. *fingers crossed*
