The Enchanted Galaxy Series is Done!
(And due out in November)
I am now done with the last book in the Enchanted Galaxy Series, which puts me right on schedule. This doesn’t often happen. I’ve set the publishing date for all of these in November. This way my editor has enough time to go over them, and I can get them all out at once. I could delay each book by a month, but to be honest, since fantasy isn’t what I’m known for, I see no reason to spread out their publication. I’d rather focus my energy and time on romances. While other genres are fun, my heart will always be with romance.
I’m halfway into Chapter 1 in His Wicked Lady
And I’m already having a lot of fun with the characters. I’ve figured out how I’m going to get Malcolm to agree to be paired up with a wife by using Helena, Melissa, and Chloe’s matchmaking service. (I’m not calling it a matchmaking service, but that’s basically what it is.) I already knew why the heroine (Regan) will be using it. His was the piece of the puzzle I hadn’t figured out until I was writing this morning. On a strange side note, I keep wanting to type in “Matthew” instead of “Malcolm” for the hero. I have no idea why, but apparently, choosing “Mathias” as the name for his nephew has only made it that more difficult for me to remember he is Malcolm. Thankfully, there’s alway the Find and Replace function on Word.
Trying To Decide Where To Go On This One (Again)
I might have to change this one again. I won’t have to rewrite anything I’ve done in this version, but I might have to go with my original reason for Richard marrying Amanda. That is probably the hardest part while writing this book. It all has to do with backstory, and it’s hard for me to figure out the best way to go. And I can’t say what it is because it’s a huge spoiler. I don’t know why, but this is one of the toughest books I’ve ever written.
Starting Chapter 2
I’m not far along, but at least I’m on a good start and know where I’m headed. I have it set up where Phoebe has to go out to the Colorado Territory to marry a man she believes posted a mail-order bride ad. I say “believes” because the ad was placed by someone who wants to see the hero married off because the hero is causing problems for him. The hero, by the way, has every right to cause problems because of the injustice he’s been through. However, not knowing this and the hero not realizing someone posted an ad on his behalf will cause some problems in and of themselves. I’m looking forward to the moment they realize they’ve been deceived. I believe that will come in chapter 3.
