I still don’t know if this will be out late this month or early next.  It depends on when I get the book back from my wonderful editing team.  I hope to have it on pre-order at Amazon soon, but for now, it’s already up at the other retailers like Barnes & Noble, Kobo and iBooks.

This is the last book in the Marriage by Bargain Series.  Book 1 is The Viscount’s Runaway  Bride, Book 2 is The Rake’s Vow, and Book 3 is Taming The Viscountess.

I am almost finished with The Bride Price!

I’m excited to say that I expect to finish the first draft of The Bride Price by next weekend.  I think I have an idea for the other two books in this series.  I’m still working on the ideas and brainstorming.  This is why I haven’t picked out titles for those books yet.

I am hoping to get this out in October.

I’m getting close to halfway into Married In Haste!

This is Book 2 in the Married by Fate Series.  Book 1 is The Reclusive Earl.  I have no idea what Book 3 and Book 4 will be about.  I know what characters I want to feature in them, but I have no plot ideas for them yet.  So I’m going to sit down and brainstorm different possibilities.  Usually, I have ideas for the next book or two in a series while I’m writing the book that comes before it, but in this case, I’m at a complete loss.

But I am hoping to get this out right after Christmas and before New Year.

I am about 14,000 words in Wanted: Mail Order Husband!

I have no cover yet.

I’m embarking on another historical western romance series.  This one will feature mail order husbands and brides.  I would love to get this one out in January or February, but I haven’t even put it on pre-order yet.

I haven’t made much progress in The Outlaw’s Bride

Everything else has been taking center stage through the summer, and it’s harder to get word count in when the kids are home for the summer.  But I will say that I’ve gotten a ton of walking in, and I am finally proficient at using dictation to speak a story.  So I’m not complaining at all.  Getting over the hurdle in story dictation was difficult. 🙂

I hope all of you are having a great August!
