Wagon Trail Bride is out January 3 (less than a week away!)
Today I worked on the email for my new release email list so it’ll be ready to go when Wagon Trail Bride is out on January 3. Only people on the email list will be getting the extra scene I usually write. In this case, there are three scenes I took out of the original version of this book. So there’s two bonus scenes this time. (If you want to be on my email list, here’s the link to sign up. I don’t email anything until I have a new release. I don’t believe in spamming people’s inboxes.)
At any rate, Richard’s been looking forward to this book for years. I think the first mention I made of it was way back in 2012. I didn’t think it would take this long to get out, but alas, this went through a couple of rewrites and had me stalled for the longest time.
His Wicked Lady is due out January 9 (just under two weeks)!
I still have to work on the email for when this comes out. I only did one extra scene for this one. I had the hardest time coming up with an idea, but someone gave me a good idea and I went with it.
Next month, The Convenient Mail Order Bride is out!
This one is set for February 21. I’m not close to working on this one, but I’m brainstorming ideas on what to do for the extra scene.
On April 3, I’m publishing something special.
(I don’t have the cover yet but my cover artist is working on it.)
What’s it about:
It’ll be “Bonus Material from the Larsons” and it’ll have the posts from way back in 2011-2012 when I was doing character interviews for Shotgun Groom, To Have and To Hold, Her Heart’s Desire, and Isaac’s Decision. I’d forgotten Dave Larson went into try to rewrite Isaac’s Decision and the resulting call for a boycott on my books after that. Then there was the whole Dave got kidnapped thing and then I sued Dave for pain and suffering. That was a fun trip down memory lane with the Larsons. I also had the competition between Rick Johnson, Tom Larson, Dave Larson, Joel Larson, Owen Russell, and Neil Craftsman (who were heroes in some of the Nebraska Series book) where people voted on their favorite hero. It was a lot of fun.
I know this isn’t something I typically do, but I thought it’s about time I take some of my blog posts and put them into a book so it’s easy to access.
I was originally going for a longer book that would have more series covered, but I could only upload a 15MB document to Smashwords, so I had to narrow things down to just the Larsons. (I wanted to add some of the pictures I used in the blog posts since they make things a lot more fun.)
Where it’s at on pre-order:
You can check out a sample at Smashwords if you want an idea of what’s in it.
To people on my email list:
For those of you on my email list, I’ll be doing the same thing in the new release email that I did with the Enchanted Galaxy Series. If you were on my list in November, you know what I’m talking about. If you just recently signed up for it, leave a comment below.
Since I dumped a lot on you in this post, I’ll end this here.
