Schedule Changes and Fluctuations

So, I had big goals this year. I was going to publish something every single month in 2017. Well, that’s going to turn into an average, but here’s what I’ve got so far, and what you can expect for the last half of this year.

In January, I released A Ruby Glows, the Cutter’s Creek novel that turned into a prequel for my Seven Brides of South Dakota Series. Then, in February, I released the first Seven Brides story, Dreams in Deadwood. March’s release, Kisses in Keystone, was one of my favorites as I got to interview a friend to write it. April was a disastrously hard month for me with the loss of my mother, but I also released my first best-selling title, An Ivy Tangles. May was chock full of releases with three titles of three lengths: Love in Lead (full length), a freebie novella Montana Trails, and a novelette that is exclusive for my newsletter subscribers Matchmaker. In June, I didn’t publish anything. I spent the entire month finishing a book, and editing five other stories for either re-release or for later. And just earlier this week, I released Romance in Rapid, and now we are midway through the Seven brides of South Dakota Series.

So, what can you expect from me the rest of this year? Lots of great reads!

In August, you can expect my last Cutter’s Creek release (at least for a while) Keepsake. This heroine of this novel was chosen by my readers at our Cutter’s Creek anniversary in May. Angel Dawson is a photographer and has a deep need to maintain the legacy of her father. That one is due August 18th.

In September, I’ve got the fifth book in the Seven Brides Series, Surrender in Spearfish. Lula’s story centers around the Normal School in Spearfish, SD. She’s a feisty sort. What happens when the boy who made her life at school miserable, suddenly becomes her teacher? This story has been fun, and I’m about halfway done with it.

October will be a busy month with the release of something BRAND NEW. I can’t wait to tell you more about it, but for now, it’s in the secretive stage. I’ll also have a release in November that pertains to this.

In December, watch for the sixth story in the Seven Brides of South Dakota series. I’ll keep you up to date as I can share more with you. I have even more exciting news and secret projects for 2018. I’ve already got next year’s writing scheduled and it’s going to be wild!
