For the time being, I’m putting An Earl In Time on hold
I am having an author friend go through it for me to help me figure out where I went off the rails with this one. The beginning is perfect. I love it as is. But there’s something that developed around the time the hero and heroine meet that is off. I’m having trouble pinpointing it, which is why I asked my friend for help.
My friend is doing a wonderful job of helping me already, but I want to take time to really think everything through. My plan is to take notes on her suggestions, put them aside, and let my mind work on it. In the meantime, I’ll work on other books.
This morning, I sat down to readjust my publishing schedule for the rest of the year.
Perfectly Matched (Husbands for the Larson Sisters Series: Book 2) is still set for March 27
This is already completed in its final version. Thankfully, it happened before all of the commotion started around here.
A Perilous Marriage (Marriage by Necessity Series: Book 1) has been moved to May 27
At the moment, I’m having a situation where I have some house repairs that need to be done, and this has made it hard for me to sit down and focus. Instead of pushing myself to get this polished up and out into the world by May 7th, I decided to move it to May 27.
Interview for a Wife (Nebraska Prairie Series: Book 3)
I’m moving this to July. It will finish the Nebraska Prairie Series.
I’m putting The Cursed Earl (Marriage by Necessity Series: Book 2) for September
On Smashwords, I put October, just in case this ends up getting delayed. Originally, I had slotted Heiress of Misfortune for Book 2, but as I was wrapping up A Perilous Marriage, the more logical book to do next was this one. I shifted Heiress of Misfortune to a January/February 2022 release.
Suitable for Marriage (Husbands for the Larson Sisters Series: Book 3) is expected out in November
I have no idea for the Daisy Larson (the youngest of Tom and Jessica’s daughters), so my plan is to work on Jeremiah’s romance (Wyoming Series: Book 4) after I finish up Suitable for Marriage. I’d like to get Jeremiah’s story out in March 2022.
Making a Realistic Publishing Schedule has been cancelled for the year
I have put this book on hold for the whole year. I was going to get this out in the summer, but with everything that’s going on, there’s just no way it’s happening.
Don’t take this the wrong way … but I’m SO glad I’m not the only one with time-travel romance issues. No matter how well I plot one, I somehow seem to mess something up. 🙂 Hope you get it figured out soon.
I don’t take it the wrong way. It’s always good to know you’re not alone. 😀
Good luck with the new book!
