Radish

I was accepted to be a writer on the serialized fiction app called Radish. Here is my page: https://radish.app.link/IjkVqGci3nb I think this link will allow you to follow me to get notifications when I have new episodes of my books out. I’m still learning how this thing works.

I’m in the process of posting my stories over there. As of today (March 1), I have a few romances already uploaded and queued to be released. Each episode (which is roughly 1 chapter) is set to be released every day.

The Regencies:

I had a hard time deciding how to handle the Story and Season part of this, but after some debate, I decided to make an entire Regency series a “story” and then break up the books into seasons. I did this because the Regency series are pretty much intertwined together. So this is how things will look on Radish for the Marriage by Scandal series.

Story: Marriage by Scandal

  • Season 1: The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife
  • Season 2: A Most Unsuitable Earl
  • Season 3: His Reluctant Lady
  • Season 4: The Earl’s Scandalous Wife

A new “episode” in the Marriage by Scandal story is set to publish every day. Right now there are two episodes of The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife up. Then when The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife is done, the next day will start with A Most Unsuitable Earl. And on it goes until the Marriage by Scandal is completed.

Here is the link for it: https://radish.app.link/7Ipk5qUg3nb. I hope that works, but you might need the app to access it. I got the app from Apple on my iPhone.

Additional note: All of my Regencies that are in a series will be handled this way. My two standalone Regencies (Her Counterfeit Husband and An Earl In Time) will be their own stories.

The historical westerns:

The Larson books (my main family that I love to spend time with) are spread out across multiple series, so I’m going to do these as standalone stories that will only have 1 Season. That is the best way I can think of to handle those since they aren’t a neat and tidy “fit” for multiple seasons.

Wagon Trail Bride is Richard Larson’s romance. I posted this as a free story, so you shouldn’t need any coins for this one. I scheduled a new episode to come out every day. Here’s the link: https://radish.app.link/dauJ1Z1g3nb

As for standalone historical westerns, I do have a few. I have The Mail Order Bride’s Deception in queue right now. Here’s the link: https://radish.app.link/BheXke0g3nb

Episodes for Wagon Trail Bride and The Mail Order Bride’s Deception will start coming out either later today or tomorrow.

Additional note: I am in the process of putting up more books. I have to break everything into episodes, so it takes some time. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

The Loner’s Bride is due out March 13

Since I rambled on so much about Radish, I’ll do a special post when this book is out. 🙂 So I’ll be doing another post around the middle of this month. Note: if anyone wants a discount, I’ll be adding a link to Payhip in that post.

I’m still waiting to get these two books from the editor:

20200317_PublishingSchedule   Suitable for Marriage Book 3 Ebook-smaller

So there’s nothing to report here.

I’m 25,000 words into this one

The heroins in this one isn’t clumsy like I originally planned. I tried fitting that angle in somewhere into the book, but it’s not working out. So I had to go in another direction to explain why her father hired a Runner to see if someone is trying to kill her. I still have some things to work out, but I think it’s coming together as it’s supposed to.

The fun part was having the Duchess of Ashbourne (from Love Lessons with the Duke) changing her from a shy wallflower into an enticing lady. The hero is going to start to having trouble keeping things platonic. 😉 At the moment, she doesn’t like him all that much, so it’s easy for her to resist him.

I’m 17,000 words into Daisy’s book

This is turning into a really cute comedy. Otis (our hero) has arrived, unannounced, to Omaha with the intention of marrying Daisy. He sincerely assumes Daisy wants to marry him, so he left Montana to be with her. Daisy had NO idea that a simple compliment she made while visiting Eva Conneally (from Boaz’s Wager) led Otis to believe she was in love with him. So she is all flustered and doesn’t know what to do. Otis has already convinced her parents (Tom and Jessica Larson) that he would make Daisy a good husband, and they’re currently getting her ready for the wedding. This one has me chuckling while I’m writing.

I have a feeling Daisy’s three sisters (Nelly, Patricia, and Erin) will turn Otis from a scruffy rancher into the kind of prince Daisy can’t help but fall in love with. This is a makeover romance where the man (instead of the woman) needs to be more attractive in order to win the heart of the love interest.

I’m about 12,000 words in Secret Admirer

This one is a little slow going. I’m having to research the tasks a butler performs while writing this because the hero is a butler. This is a servant and noble lady romance. Lady Rachel has received a missive from a secret admirer (she doesn’t know it’s the butler) and has enlisted his help to find the admirer. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to finding out how events will unfold. At the moment, the butler is on “lookout” for this admirer at the ball her brother’s hosting. I have no idea what will happen, but I’m thinking he’ll need to come up with a potential gentleman to tell her is the admirer.

I hope everyone has a great March!
