March 2015 Newsletter

Look for this one in Late March or Early April

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

Well, I wanted to be finished with this first draft already, but as it turns out, I’m not.  Which is a real bummer.  I might or might not be able to get this out before next month.  If I do, it won’t be until the very end.  I have kids who will be off school for Spring Break, and that cuts into my productivity time.

What I’ll do it post the April newsletter on here after it’s published with all the links.  That way you won’t be bugged with more than one email (like you were in February with the two books I had out in the middle of the month.)

Not Sure When this one will be Done


I’m only chapter five, and writing Bride by Design did delay me (a bit) because I had to focus in on it to get it done under a tight deadline.  I’ve also been snail pacing with my writing in order to take care of gathering stuff for taxes.  I’m telling you, that is a huge time suck.  You’d think it’d be easy, but it’s not when you’re waiting for things to come in, have to make phone calls to get things to come in, ask your accountant for advice, etc.  I finally got everything together.  Thankfully.  So maybe I can finally gain some traction.

Originally, I was hoping for an April release.  I already know that isn’t going to happen.  May or June is now looking to be the possible months.

Back to working on my Novella in this Anthology

a groom's promise

I did pick this back up.  It’s due out this summer.  Janet and I are hoping for a June release.  I think I got to chapter seven the other day.  At any rate, I’m happy with the way the story is going.

I Haven’t Done too Much in This Either


My focus has been on finishing Ruined by the Earl, so all of my available writing time has been going to this.  I haven’t done anything in this one for a couple weeks.

I Have Been Working on This

royal hearts ebook

This is due out July 4 and is currently on pre-order.  It’s the second book in the Enchanted Galaxy Series.

This Will be out before the end of the Year

the royal pursuit ebook cover

I want to finish up the Enchanted Galaxy Series, so this will be out sometime before the end of the year.  I’ll discuss this and (Royal Hearts) more in future posts.


New Work I Added

Betting on Love ebook

This is going to be under my pen name, Barbara Joan Russell, because it’ll be a sweet romance.  It’s the prequel to “Online Proposal”, my novella in Bride by Design.  But I’m going to do something fun I haven’t done in a long time.  I’ll be blogging the first draft on a blog I’m getting ready for April 1.

I’ll give more details in April’s newsletter.

Hope everyone has a great March!
