Interview for a Wife is Available!

This completes the Nebraska Prairie Series.

A quick reminder, The Purchased Bride was in the Bride by Arrangement anthology, and The Bride’s Choice was in the A Groom’s Promise anthology. (I’ll post the covers of the anthologies in case you already have these. If you do have them, you already have the first two books in the Nebraska Prairie Series.)

Interview for a Wife is a brand new story that I have not published before.

About Interview for a Wife

Interview for a Wife is pretty much Eye of the Beholder meets Bid for a Bride. The central theme is overcoming insecurities, and it’s the love the hero and heroine have that enables them to do it.

Here is the description:

When her husband died, Deanne Grayson didn’t shed a tear. She did, however, worry that his death meant she’d have to return to her hometown in Kentucky. Fortunately, she stumbles upon an ad in the paper from a man in Lincoln, Nebraska who is interviewing for a wife.

Widower Bill Harvey is in need of a wife to help him run his general store. Plus, it would be nice to have help raising his two young children. But being confined to a wheelchair doesn’t exactly make him confident when it comes to a more intimate union with a woman. So when Deanne comes in for an interview, he makes a stipulation. He’ll marry her, but they won’t be consummating the marriage.

A marriage of convenience suits Deanne just fine. She’s not looking for love. As long as she doesn’t have to return to her hometown, she’ll be happy.

It’s not long before Bill starts to have desires he put behind him after the accident that confined him to a wheelchair. Yes, it was his decision to treat their marriage like a partnership, but after he gets to know her, he starts to want more. Exactly how can he, someone who is only half a man, expect her to want a real marriage with him?

  1. Congratulations on the book release. I hope it does well.

      • You’re welcome.
        BTW, how are things working with that other publisher you’re using? The one that’s not KDP?

        • Still waiting for it to distribute my book across the retailers. I wish I could remember the date I approved it so I can keep track of how long this is taking. With KDP, it’s quick. But this has to go through the channels outside of Amazon. I’m waiting for it to go on other retailers besides Amazon. I don’t know how long KDP took to send paperbacks to places like B&N.

            • I have a couple with “CreateSpace” being the publisher, but it used to be that all of my paperbacks were put over there. I checked just now and see that most have been removed. B&N has its own paperback making option, so I guess you could do that there, but honestly, who has the time to manually go in for 100 books and do all of those files when paperbacks only yield maybe $100 in a year? My time would be better spent writing the next book. Maybe if I had less books, but even then B&N isn’t a big seller.

              • I agree with you on that.

                • I searched through D2D’s FAQs and found they do distribute to places like Amazon and B&N, but there’s nothing about how long it takes from the time you approve the proof copy to when it shows up at these places. It would be nice to have an estimate. I’ll keep checking, and if I see it, I’ll let you know. When I approve the paperback for An Earl In Time, I’ll mark the date down. Then I’ll keep track of how long it takes to get on Amazon and B&N. I’ll keep you posted.
