I am excited.
No, DELIRIOUS may be the best word.
About Married Before Midnight.
About two wonderful characters who haunted me for weeks. And about a wonderful, inspiring and plucky canine companion named Cody.
Welcome to my first book in an emotional new contemporary series set in Oregon. Married Before Midnight is set in this same world as my Summer Island series.
But now you are going to meet all new characters and discover a dramatic, richly emotional plot which stretches over four books. Right… four new books are headed your way!
Let me tell you more. ..
Yes, I’ve left Harlequin and I’m bringing this series out independently. Why did I go independent? You may well ask!
At Harlequin I routinely had to wait a year and a half for a book to be released after I had finished all the work on it. Also I did not have control over the kinds of books I could write. Or my covers. I couldn’t bear that. Nor could my readers. You told me that often!
So I packed up… And I went indie!
( And for all you Draycott Abbey fans, this is important because I am working on new Draycott books. More news on that in the next few months.)
You may be surprised and you may be disappointed by what I’m going to tell you next.
This first book will not be available in a print edition. Print editions involve very expensive pricing for an independent author. So if you will help me and be a little patient, here is my plan.
I will bring out the first TWO books in the new Brides Club series together in a print box set, probably in February. And each print book will be hand signed by me.
But first, I need to launch book one well and smoothly. And you can help me do that by spreading the word and giving Annie and Jared a chance to find their audience.
