Link I found about Popular Romance Tropes
So I’ve been brainstorming all kinds of posts I could use about popular romance tropes over the last few months, but my mind keeps coming up blank. I’ve started a couple of posts and just couldn’t figure out where to go without the first two or three sentences. I found this blog post Mindy Klasky wrote which sums up a variety of tropes (some I didn’t even think about). I’m going to link to her post so you can read it. I’m sorry, guys, but my head just wasn’t in this particular topic. It’s an excellent post, and I can tell she took a lot of time and thought into writing it.
I finished The Bargain Mail Order Bride!
Book 4 in the Chance At Love Series
(Book 1: The Convenient Mail Order Bride, Book 2: The Mistaken Mail Order Bride, Book 3: The Accidental Mail Order Bride)
And I’m starting the initial edits today. This one turned out to be 10,000 words longer than what I usually write, but since this is the last book in the Chance At Love Series, I had to tie up the loose ends in the series. I’m extremely happy with this series, and I think it’s one of my best. Previous characters did make appearances in this one, so you’ll see familiar faces.
I’m hoping to have this out December 3o or 31. I’d like to get this out a week earlier than expected.
I’ll Be Getting Back to Groom For Hire
Book 3 in the Pioneer Series
(Book 1: Wagon Trail Bride, Book 2: The Marriage Agreement)
I’m well into halfway in this book, but I had to stop writing in it to finish The Bargain Mail Order Bride.
This is not on pre-order yet.
I’ll Be Getting Back to The Rake’s Vow, Too
Book 2 in the Marriage By Bargain Series
(Book 1: The Viscount’s Runaway Bride, Book 3: To Snare An Earl, Book 4: The Duke’s Convenient Wife)
I only made it to chapter 2 before I had to focus on The Bargain Mail Order Bride. 🙂
So that leaves us with what series I’m starting next…
It will be another historical western romance series, and it will focus on Sep (Joel Larson’s young brother-in-law in Shotgun Groom.
His Auctioned Bride (The Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 1)
Books 2-4 are currently untitled.
I don’t know what the plot of this will be until I write it, but I can tell you the set-up for it.
Four women arrive in Omaha, Nebraska. All are mail-order brides. The problem? They answered the same ad to a shady character who plans to auction them all off.
His Auctioned Bride starts off this series when Sep becomes aware of this and bids on the heroine. From there, I’ll have to write the book and see what happens.
