Good morning, book fans.
Good news. OUT OF CONTROL is officially out and available for sale.
Other good news is that I’m over 100 pages into the next books which is a sort of follow up of the secondary characters in OOC. Hopefully, i can get that too you before the end of the year.
Today’s the day! OUT OF CONTROL is now available. I’ve already received my pre-ordered copy on my Kindle for $2.99.
It’s official! The release date in March 3.
The print version will be a little later. I’m still proofing the print proofs. Nothing worse than trying to find the mistakes in a book that you wrote yourself and have read at least ten times already. I really, really have to be careful!
The sun is shining today. Let’s hope that continues.
Edited: Of course, I’m referring to OUT OF CONROL.
Another Tuesday and I almost forgot. Blame it on the fact that yesterday was President’s Day and so I’m a day off. It doesn’t help that I had to get up at the crack of rain (no dawn in sight around her) and go get my annual mammogram. Since having breast cancel nineteen years ago, I have been vigilant about taking care of that. After nineteen years, I don’t worry about it as much as I one did, but I always feel better after I get that clean bill of health from my doctor.
Good news about the book. Out of Control is now in production. I’m hoping for a March 3 release date, but until that is a done deal, don’t hold me to it. Once I get that set for sure, I’ll let you know. In the meantime, here’s the cover art for you to look at.
The time for my new book to be available is coming closer.
I’m hoping that OUT OF CONTROL will be available right around Valentines Day, though it isn’t necessarily a Valentine story. Of course, it is a romance and that is always appropriate around the season of love.
OUT OF CONTROL is the final installment of my Forever Friends trilogy, about three women who have known each other since high school and how love comes into their lives, one for the first time and the other two second chances. If you haven’t read the first two, they are still available on Amazon. OUT OF THE BLUE was originally published in 2012 by a very small press in 2012, and later re-released by me in 2018. OUT OF HER COMFORT ZONE was self-published by me in late 2018. Soon OUT OF CONTROL finishes the story.
Please be sure to share this information with your friends who might be interested in getting to know Betsy, Beth, and Liz.
Okay, I have no excuses. It’s time to get back in gear and back to writing. Truth be told, I have missed being in a routine, so I’m happy to get back to work.
I’m just starting a new book that has been percolating in the back of my mind for awhile, so I’m looking forward to seeing where my characters take me. No matter how hard I plan and plot, once I get into the flow of the story, my characters hijack things, and personally, I believe it makes the stories better.
I’ve been busy, busy, busy trying to finish Bobby’s and Jack’s story. I had intended it to be a novella ready to be released around Valentine’s Day. Well, my characters had other ideas.
Bobby has been very stubborn, still mourning her late husband, though it has been almost three years since his death, and Jack is getting tired of being patient. Getting into the mix is Bobby’s teen-aged daughter Audrey who is having major boy problems of her own. (And this has suggested another story to be written sometime in the future.) So, my novella is destined to be a full-length novel.
Those of you who don’t have people living in your head clamoring to get out probably don’t get that this is both a blessing and a curse. However, I’d rather have this blessing than not have any ideas at all.
I’ve been trying to keep my nose to the grindstone and write every day, and I am making progress, but not as much as I would like. I think it has something to do with the dreary, cloudy weather this time of year.
One little piece of good news, a little late, but nice anyway. My Christmas book [Home for the Holidays] got a nice 4 star review from InD’Tale magazine. So maybe that will bump my sales stats. A woman can hope.
LOTS OF NEWS to write about today.
First: Educating Blaine is live on Amazon for both e-book and print purchases.
Second: I just got a 4 star review from In D’Tale Magazine for Out of her Comfort Zone. Of course, OOHCZ is still available in both formats.
Third: This one kinda blows my mind, Priceless Marriage, a book originally published by Harlequin American in 2003 has been republished in the German edition of Bianca. Imagine my surprise when I opened the unexpected package containing three German copies. [Picture shown of American version.]
