November Newsletter 2012

I apologize for getting this out so late.  I went to a writer’s conference and was one of the speakers at a workshop, so I was working on the presentation.  I got home yesterday and am trying to catch up with everything today.  I’m halfway there.  😀

Fortunately, nothing major is going on the last week of November, so I should be able to get December’s newsletter out on time.

Substitute Bride is Now Available!

I hadn’t planned on this when I wrote the October Newsletter, but I really like this novella.  It was cute and fun and light.  I originally wrote it under Kate Page, but since then, I decided to get rid of that pen name because I didn’t have time to manage it while still writing books as Ruth Ann Nordin.  It’s easier to make all books under Ruth.  I have no other Kate Page books to republish under Ruth, so this is it.  😀

Anyway, if you read the Kate Page version, you already read the book and there’s no need to get this one.  All I did was take out some unnecessary love scenes and added one scene between Kevin and Tammy and another scene between Kevin and Alex (when Alex was trying to get Kevin interested in her).

Here’s the description:

Kevin Edwards stands to inherit one million dollars. The catch? He must get married by Valentine’s Day. With only a month to spare, he seeks out the first woman who catches his interest: Tammy. But his best friend, Alexandra (Alex) Dixon is convinced he’s making the biggest mistake of his life. So she decides she will take Tammy’s place and be his bride instead. Can she convince him that things will be much better if they become more than friends or will he say “I do” to the wrong woman?

If interested, the links are below.  (It will be up on Kobo, Sony, Diesel, and Apple in about a month or so, depending on how quickly Smashwords distributes it.)




Other Works in Progress

The most notable one is A Most Unsuitable Earl.

I expect to finish the first draft of this one this week.  Then it’s off to others to give a read through.  I already went on and on about this book, so I won’t bore you with the description again.  😀

His Reluctant Bride

(old working title: The Write Husband)

This was inspired by a character who popped up in A Most Unsuitable Earl.  Agatha Lyons, the Lady of Richfield, was married and widowed in the span of twenty-four hours.  And given her desire for freedom that she now has as a widow, she has no desire to marry.  But Mister Christopher Robinson (the ward who had to clean Lord Roderick’s chamber pots in The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife–remember him?) sees Agatha and immediately falls in love with her.  Despite her cold indifference to him, he’s determined to marry her, even if it takes a scandal to make it happen.

(Note: The Write Husband just no longer worked as a title, so I had to change it.  And yes, I know I have to change my header to reflect the new title.)


I’ll give more information about my works in progress in December’s Newsletter.  I want to get this out tonight.  😀
