November 2015 Newsletter

Last month is a blur.  I went to Nebraska for two weeks to visit an author friend, Janet Syas Nitsick.  During my stay, we went to Kansas City to attend a writer’s conference.  In case you ever wondered what I look like, here’s a picture:

I did this pose because Janet was all dressed up, but I wasn't.  ;)

And, in case anyone wants to see Janet, here she is:

Now for the updates on what I’ve done and will be doing.  Things are about to get busy. 🙂

The Enchanted Galaxy Series

royal hearts ebookthe royal pursuit ebook coverroyal heiress ebook coverI had meant to get these out early last month, but since I was finishing up the first draft to Wagon Trail Bride and getting A Groom’s Promise ready for the editors.  Since it’s already November, I’ll let the release dates stay at they are.  Royal Hearts is due out on the 20th, The Royal Pursuit is due out on the 21st, and Royal Heiress is due out on the 22nd.

If you are on my email list, please wait until you get the email announcing these are available before doing anything.  

I will post links on where to buy these books and their descriptions in the next post.

A Groom’s Promise is now on Pre-order

The release date is December 20!

The editing team is mostly done with this anthology.  My story in this one is called “The Bride’s Choice” and it is a full-length novel.  Janet’s story “When the Whistle Blows” is almost a full-length novel.  I have included more of a description and links where you can pre-order this at (if you’re interested) at this link.   (I’m testing our pre-orders on Amazon with this book, but most of the time, I only do pre-orders in iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo.)

Wagon Trail Bride is also on Pre-Order

(Pioneer Series: Book 1)

This is due out January 3!


I’m thrilled to say this is with my editing team.  At long last, Richard Larson has his story!!  Better yet, since I am now done with the second draft and have sent it off to my wonderful editing team, it’s close to being ready to publish.  I know this has been a long time in coming.  I’m so happy I can say I finally finished it, and I love how it turned out!

You can find the pre-order links, along with fun tidbits from what the characters think of this book, at this link.  (Like A Groom’s Promise, I’m testing the pre-order on Amazon with this one.  In addition, it’s on iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo.)

His Wicked Lady is also up on Pre-Order

(Marriage by Arrangement Series: Book 1)

This is due out January 9!

His Wicked Lady ebook cover

I am now done with the first draft and should be finished with the second draft by the end of this weekend.  It’s due to go out to my editing team next week.  This was another fun one to write, and it went off in a direction I didn’t plan on when I started it.  Sometimes books are like that.  I go in thinking it’ll play out one way, and something happens where the characters decide to go in the other direction.  In this case, the heroine changed her mind on how to proceed halfway into the book, and everything went off tangent.  But…it was for the best.  I’m glad it turned out the way it did!

I also made a pre-order page for this one with characters chiming in on what they think of this book.  (This is just on iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo.)

I’m almost halfway through The Convenient Mail Order Bride

(Chance at Love Series: Book 1)

This is due out February 21!

I’m hoping to finish the first draft this month, but we’ll see if that happens.  If not, then it should be done mid-December for sure.

I’ve started Her Devilish Marquess

(Marriage by Arrangement Series: Book 2)

This is due out May 8!


I’m still on chapter 1, so I have a long way to go.  But, at least I started it!

I just started The Marriage Agreement, too

(Pioneer Series: Book 2)

The Marriage Agreement ebook cover

I’m also on chapter 1 of this one.  It’s currently due out August 7.


I have another project I’m working on, but I want the cover ready before I mention it.


Hope everyone has a great November!
