I finally got all of these books back on up all the retailers!
These were the books I got back from my publisher. There was a little snafu with Google Play Books, but I finally got that all resolved. If anyone hasn’t read any of these and would like the link to a certain retailer, let me know in the comments.
It feels good to get all of that out of the way. Now I can focus on other stuff.
Release date for Nobody’s Fool pushed back to October 28.
Someone on my editing team has run into a couple of situations that has required her to go to doctor appointments and care for her elderly mother. To help lighten her load, I have decided to move the date from October 17 to the 28th. The book is done. I will have it out before the end of October. All she needs it a little more time to work on it.
I hope to finish the first draft of A Deceptive Wager this month.
This is scheduled to come out on January 17.
I am still working on Perfectly Matched.
This one is due for a March release. Poor Jim has Patricia and Erin Larson both fighting over which one will get to marry him. And poor Tom Larson doesn’t know how to stop them. 😛
I have started Interview for a Wife.
NO COVER YET
This will be Book 3 in the Nebraska Prairie Series. I decided to expand on this series when I got The Purchased Bride and The Bride’s Choice back.
As a quick reminder…
The Purchased Bride is about Ada whose brother sells her to a stranger to marry.
The Bride’s Choice is about a stuttering hero who came out with his brother to be a farmhand in order to get a fresh start on life. He falls in love with the daughter of the farm owner. His problem? Her father wants her to marry his brother instead.
Information for Book 3: Interview for a Wife is about a widower of two young children who needs a wife to help him run his general store because he’s unable to physically get things done for his customers since an accident left him stuck in a wheelchair. The catch? The wife will have to agree to a celibate marriage because he only feels like half the man he used to be.
After much debate, I finally have an idea for a new Regency series.
This series will go after the Marriage by Fairytale Series in the Regency timeline (click the link to see all of the books in the Regency world).
I already have the covers for three of the books. I don’t know if I’ll do more than three books in this series. I probably will. But this is what I have so far:
Anyone remember Miss Tumilson in The Reclusive Earl? She had a minor role. I had wanted to do a story about her. In The Marriage Contract, I had a character mention that she was to marry someone in order to set the stage for her book. Finally, in A Perilous Marriage, I can give her her own book!
A quick rundown of these three books:
A Perilous Marriage: Poor Miss Tumilson finds her husband dead before she can consummate her marriage, but that’s the least of her problems. It turns out her husband’s friend thinks she murdered him and is determined to do whatever it takes to prove it.
Heiress of Misfortune: The heroine seems to have a series of unfortunate accidents following her. Her father believes someone is trying to kill her, so he hires the hero to watch over her.
The Cursed Earl: The hero in this book believes himself to be under a family curse where the gentlemen in his family die by their twenty-fifth birthday, so he makes it his mission to have an heir before it’s his turn to die.
I’m in awe! You’ve accomplished so much. Bravo and congrats!!!!
Thanks, Juli! If I was still writing to market, I never would have made it. I know some authors can pull it off, but I’m not one of them.
Looking forward to reading the books! Really loving the ideas for the Marriage by Necessity Series. 😀
Thanks, and thank you for helping my brain get into gear on this series!
You are very welcome. I love coming up with new story ideas or helping other writers do it. Playing what if on a story with another writer is the best kind of game to play. LOL
I tried playing it with others while growing up, but no one wanted to. It’s so much fun to know someone who’ll play it because it gets so many of the creative juices going. 😀
The new series looks exciting. I can’t wait! I still hope for poor shy Viscount Bridgeton to have a story someday. Fingers crossed.
I didn’t get a chance to comment on the last trivia blog, and the comment link didn’t work, so if it’s ok I will do that here. I know you’ve done trivia on so many of my most read books and I thank you, but if you’d like any other suggestions, I am re-reading Issac’s Decision right now so that would be one and Forced into Marriage another. The ending of If It Takes and Scandal, was one of the funniest so I would love to read trivia on that. You set the spooky stage very well. I felt I was in the room. They were really fun characters. Thanks for writing.
Could you tell me which book I mentioned Viscount Bridgeton in? I’ve been looking for him. I remember who you’re talking about, but in all the books I’ve done, I can’t remember which one I put him in. I remember referencing a character who was extremely shy, and I would love to work with such a character. I think he spent all his time with books, right?
I’m glad to get more books to do trivia on! Thank you! I wrote them down to do in the future. I’m glad you liked the ending to If It Takes A Scandal. That was my favorite one. 😀
Viscount Bridgeton is mentioned in Chapter Two of The Reclusive Earl as a possible match for Opal. He’s described as very shy and tends to hide. Warren mentions him again at the wedding referring to the fact that Landon showed up where Viscount Bridgeton would have been to sacred.
For some reason I keep thinking he was in another book for a moment. I will have to check out the books around The Reclusive Earl and try and find him. It will be fun. Even if I can’t find him it’s never a hardship to re read your books:) Thanks for writing.
I think I only mentioned him one time. Thank you for the book and chapter! I wrote it down. I’ll put him in this upcoming series. I want to bring in some of these characters I mentioned in passing so I can connect them up in this Regency world. I plan to stay in this Regency world for as long as I can because it’s like running into old friends, and I never have to say goodbye to any of the characters. I used to get depressed when I ended a series because I thought it had to mean I would never be able to see any of the characters again. Now I know it doesn’t have to be that way. I don’t like writing long series, but I love staying in the same world.
I know I’ve mentioned Miss Tumilson a couple of times because I’ve been wanting to do one with her for a while. I don’t do many older heroines who are past their “prime”, so that kind of heroine is intriguing to me. That’s why I remembered her. But yes, I would love to do a run-and-hide type of hero. Let me think of a role that would suit someone like him somewhere in this series. I’d like to make it 4 or 5 books.
I think you are right with the one time mention but I’m still having fun re-reading books. I just finished Kidnapping the Viscount and it seems as if you may have been setting something up for poor Charles Duff. Heathers brother. Will we see him in his own book? Maybe with Cress?
I also get sad when a series ends and I love when characters re appear. Logan especially. I am so happy for him having 3 kids and counting. He’ll always have someone to talk to. As an Anglophile Regencies are always my favorite. Thanks for writing and I look forward to the new series.
Kidnapping the Viscount is one of my favorites. 🙂 I was originally going to go with the idea of a hero being forced to marry the heroine and spending half the book being in a funk because of it, but it was much more fun to have the hero want to be kidnapped and “forced” into marriage instead. I’m glad to hear you enjoy Logan. He seems to be one of those characters people either love or hate. I like him, but my sense of humor is quirky. I imagine he and Melissa having a lot of children, and he loves being a father. So the more kids, the better.
I did consider Charles, but I have no idea what I’d do with him. Cress is another I’d like to do, and her story would be easier. I could put her in with The Cursed Earl book. Let me see if I can work in an angle for her. If I can’t, I’ll look for somewhere else to put her.
Another thought for Charles Duff would be Logan’s sister Isabella. Since Logan helped with the “kidnapping” he would be aware of Charles’s personality and may not be happy with such a match. With your great sense of humor that book would be real fun. I am glad the hero was part of the “kidnapping”, very fun. Eagerly awaiting all the new books. Stay safe.
Isabella is a possibility. I need to check out what her age would be on the timeline. Charles would be a fun hero to work with. He needs someone with a sense of humor who doesn’t take life too seriously. 🙂
I’ll see what I can do, but I do want to work with Charles somehow.
