The big news is that I have a new book coming out this Sunday!
Due out February 12!
Groom For Hire is the third book in the Pioneer Series, but it’s not the last. I came across a certain character while writing this story, and I was intrigued enough to start a fourth book.
So the books in the series are as follows:
- Wagon Trail Bride (Book 1)
- The Marriage Agreement (Book 2)
- Groom For Hire (Book 3)
- Forced Into Marriage (Book 4)
Will there be a 5th? I don’t know yet. We’ll see how Forced Into Marriage goes.
The Rake’s Vow is in edits
This is Book 2 in the Marriage by Bargain Series.
Expected Release Date: March 26!
This turned into a much sweeter book than I had expected. (When I say “sweet”, I don’t mean “no sex”. There is sex.) Sweet to me means that the hero and heroine get along exceptionally well. I love the dynamic between the two. In my opinion, they have an excellent relationship of openness and honesty. It just happened that they softly fell in love with each other. There was no startling moment where things clicked. The relationship just progressed from friendship to love without either one realizing it until they’re faced with an unexpected situation that pops up.
Books in the Marriage by Bargain Series are as follows:
- The Viscount’s Runaway Bride (Book 1)
- The Rake’s Vow (Book 2)
- Taming The Viscountess (Book 3)
- If It Takes a Scandal (Book 4)
- Loretta’s brother (Brad) will be the hero of Book 5 (I don’t have a title yet)
The Reclusive Earl is almost 3/4 of the way done
This is Book 1 in the Marriage by Fate Series.
This is due out April 9!
Hopefully, that is the last version of the cover I’ll do. I know I keep changing it, but I think this one will work. The story, thankfully, has been coming along a lot easier than the cover. I am slowly coming up with ideas on the other books in this series. Right now, I’m focusing more on the Marriage by Bargain Series.
I probably should have waited to start this book, but after The Earl’s Wallflower Bride which had Opal (Warren’s sister) in it, I wanted to do this one before I lost touch with her character. Any time I spend some time away from a character, I lose the connection with him/her. Then I have to revisit the book they were in so I can get connected again.
Taming The Viscountess is 1/4 of the way done
This is Book 3 in the Marriage by Bargain Series
This one is so much fun to write. The hero keeps winning one up on the heroine, but he does it in humorous way. I think this book has a comedic feel to it. That is exactly the tone a book needs if the hero is going to take an unlikable character and make her someone we can all root for.
Forced Into Marriage is slow in coming
This is Book 4 in the Pioneer Series
I’m working through the last rounds of edits on The Rake’s Vow while writing, and this book tends to get pushed aside while I make room for the other two that are further up in my publishing schedule.
I don’t know if this will be out before If It Takes A Scandal or not. I plan to start If It Takes A Scandal in the next week or two. If It Takes A Scandal will be Book 4 in the Marriage by Bargain Series.
Awesome on the New Release! I love the new cover for The Reclusive Earl. 😀
Thank you. I felt bad for changing it, but I needed something that I could do that would match the rest of the books I’ll be doing in the series. Sales are down, so I have to go back to doing my own covers.
I think it looks great and no problem. 😀 I figured sales were still down or worse after we talked and you started doing covers again. I would go back to doing covers rather than paying someone if I couldn’t afford it too. And in my case save the money for the editor. LOL
I hear a lot of authors are seeing their sales go down. I think the ones that aren’t are new authors who don’t have a sales record behind them and those who offer other services to authors (like how to market books). Well, I guess if you get an Amazon imprint, you’re going to do well, too. Amazon will push it’s own books. I do think staying wide has helped buffer me, but I still make most of my money from Amazon. A couple of authors say they refuse to go on Amazon, but to me, that’s like shooting yourself in the foot. You do need Amazon in addition to being on the other channels.
I like the new cover and title a LOT.
