The Outlaw’s Bride (and following books in the series) Will Go Forward

Thank you to everyone who took the time to answer my question about waiting for a few months between releases on a book where the series is closely knit together.

A sneak peak for The Rancher’s Bride will be inserted at the end of The Outlaw’s Bride

One of the concerns brought up with a couple of beta readers was not knowing what happened to Abby. Abby is the heroine for Book 2, The Rancher’s Bride.  After bouncing some ideas around over the past week, I decided to put in a sneak peak for Book 2. That way people can find out what happened to her on a particular night that is a key event in The Outlaw’s Bride.

My new email list

Also, I noticed a couple of people mentioning the importance of knowing a specific release date for The Rancher’s Bride. With homeschooling and other stuff happening that has thrown my entire writing schedule into chaos, I can’t pinpoint a specific date. I’m not getting as much writing in as did earlier this year. All I can do is give you an estimate. I’m looking at publishing The Rancher’s Bride in Summer 2020. I’m hoping I don’t have to move the date back. If the book doesn’t turn into a long one like Fairest of Them All and The Imperfect Husband did, I should be fine. But I can’t make any promises.

So to compromise, I have brought back my email list. That way when I have a new book out, you’ll get an email in your inbox letting you know about it. I’m only going to use this email list to announce new releases. I know some authors do giveaways, free reads, post a special scene, send pictures, give personal stories about their lives, etc, but I really don’t have time to do that.  So if you sign up for the email list, you will only get a simple email that says, “Here’s my new book, and this is where you can find it.”

You can go to the email link on this blog to sign up, or you can go directly to the site on MailChimp at this link.

As a disclaimer, the emails are kept on the MailChimp site. I will only use them to send out the new release emails via MailChimp. You’ll probably get an email about six times a year.

I did a test run on the sign up page, and everything went fine, but one person had an issue with it. If you’re unable to sign up, I don’t know what to tell you. I’m not a technical expert. I guess the best thing to do in that case is make sure you’re subscribed to this blog (top right corner of this page–just under the roses) or subscribe to my monthly newsletter if you only want to get an email once a month.
