October 2018 Newsletter

I’m sorry I’m late in writing this post this month. I’m not going to have anything out until January. For those who already know, I won’t go over the details again, but for those who don’t know, I had to go through adjust my entire writing schedule. I’m done with trying to hurry up and get another book out. The rat race isn’t for me. I’m slowing down my schedule.

So with that stated, I’ll proceed with what I’m currently working on.

One Enchanted Evening is still being edited.

Marriage by Fairytale Series

  • Book 1: The Marriage Contract
  • Book 2: One Enchanted Evening
  • Book 3: The Wedding Pact
  • (more may or may not be coming)

I decided to push back the release date on this book to January 6. I’ve decided from now on, I’m not going to put anything out from October to December. These months are centered on different holidays (at least they are in the United States where I live), so I’d rather people focus on their family and friends during this time.

The Imperfect Husband (Book 4) is a little over halfway done.

Misled Mail Order Brides Series

  • Book 1: The Bride Price
  • Book 2: The Rejected Groom
  • Book 3: The Perfect Wife
  • Book 4: The Imperfect Husband

I had to slow down in this one in order to figure out how to best resolve the issues between Tony and Mark that were started in Book 2 (The Rejected Groom). I have rewritten portions of these scenes as the book progresses because there are things that pop up that I need to go back and adjust. With the exception of The Rejected Groom, every book in this series has been difficult to write. I have books that pop up like that from time to time, but it’s rare it happens with almost the entire series. Wagon Trail Bride (one of my favorites) was so difficult to write, it took me a couple of years to finally get it done. Some books are just harder to write than others. Those are best put off until the time is right.

Shane’s Deal is nearing the halfway point.

Montana Collection

  • Book 1: Mitch’s Win
  • Book 2: Boaz’s Wager
  • Book 3: Patty’s Gamble
  • Book 4: Shane’s Deal

This was supposed to be a novella. I originally planned on making this a 20,000 to 30,000 word book. I’m at 26,000 words, and there’s a lot more to go. So it’s going to be a full-length novel. This one will go to my publisher when it’s done.

Kidnapping the Viscount is about 1/3 of the way done.

Marriage by Fate Series

  • Book 1: The Reclusive Earl
  • Book 2: Married In Haste
  • Book 3: Make Believe Bride
  • Book 4: The Perfect Duke
  • Book 5: Kidnapping the Viscount

I’m at the point where the heroine has successfully kidnapped the hero. He helped her with it, though she doesn’t realize it. At its core, this is a comedy.

I have a Young Adult Thriller I’m working on under a pen name.

You're Next ebook cover2

Since some people have expressed an interest in it, I’ll mention it here. I’m about 80% of the way into it. This is going to be around 35,000 words, which makes it a novella. I can’t seem to make a novella from a romance, but I can manage it for a YA Thriller.

This particular book is about a teen girl who witnessed the murder of her classmate, and now the killer is out to get her. I’ll post more information later.


That’s all for now. I hope everyone has a great October!

  1. It sounds like you have some good stuff coming up! I can’t wait to read them!

    • I don’t know whether to laugh or shake my head in disbelief. This post was supposed to go on my Newsletter blog! LOL I didn’t even realize I put it here by mistake until this morning. It’s a good thing I’m scaling back on things. I’d hate to think what else I’d mess up if I was pushing myself hard like I used to.
