Working on Final Edits for The Earl’s Stolen Bride

Book 4 in the Marriage by Deceit Series.

Book 4 in the Marriage by Deceit Series.

I would like to bump this one up to mid-June for a release.  I’ll start on the final read through today.

Uncertain Release Date

I am in the process of talking to Janet Syas Nitsick about a possible release month for this book.  We are both done with the first drafts, but getting everything matching and the formatting are going to be more extensive than I originally thought.  I figure August at the very soonest is when I can have it all polished up and ready, but based on sales trends and other business-related factors, it might be best to wait for the beginning of next year.  (As a writer, the business side of things has to play a part in the decisions I make, and part of it is when it’s best to release a book.)

Picked Up On This One Again


It’ll be hit and miss, what with the kids now out of school for the year.  I expect progress to be slow.

Going to Pick Up This One Again, Too

I have this set tentatively for November, but if I finish early, I can publish it sooner.  We’ll see how things go.

So that puts me at three books I’ll be working on this summer.  I want to get Royal Hearts and this one out before the end of the year so I can officially put a close to the Enchanted Galaxy Series. 🙂

  1. You like to stay busy, don’t you? I really, really need to set up a publishing schedule for my stuff, too. It might make me more aware of deadlines. I’m just always so scared I won’t make my projected times. I have noticed, though, that sometimes you don’t get things done exactly when you thought, and it doesn’t get you all stressed. So why should I get stressed. It’s not like I have a deadline with a publisher, right? 🙂

    Good luck with all your projects. And I’ll do all in my power to make sure you get The Earl’s Stolen Bride published on time!

    • I need to stay busy or I’ll get restless. 🙂

      Deadlines help me have something to aim for. I don’t think of them as something that can’t be moved. That would be too stressful. I see them more as projected dates I want things to be done by. Sometimes I finish early, sometimes on time, and sometimes late. This is definitely one area where not having a publisher is being able to adjust the deadline to real life.
