I might be getting the hang of this blogging thing. Today I'm doing two posts! If you missed the the other one, it was to announce the winners of last week's giveaway, so make sure you check it out.
I'll be giving away another signed paperback edition of Mason at the end of this post, so if you don't want to read my ramblings, just skip to the end and go enter ;0)
I wanted to let you know where I'm up to - now I've got a bit of clue myself. I've been seeing some questions that surprised me lately, questions about things I thought were known. So obviously I've not been doing a very good job of keeping you up to speed. Sorry, and this is me stating an intention to try to do better in future - if you don't already know, I am commitment-phobic so stating an intention is less scary than, say, making a promise ;0)
First and foremost is - what's happening with the books? What's coming next and when? Taking deep, calming breaths here, because this feels an awful lot like making a commitment, I'm going to tell you what I see coming over the next few months. Just remember this picture as you read the rest of this post - it's how things usually work in my world, though I'm trying to do better.
I hope you already know that I'm working on Remington Ranch Book Five at the moment. It's called Four Weddings and a Vendetta, so there shouldn't be too many mysteries as to what it's about. I'm aiming to get it out in mid-November. I'll shout about the date as soon as I dare. I just hate letting you down if I mess up and don't get there in time. I'd rather leave you dangling than set you up with an expectation and then fail to deliver.
After that will be Summer Lake Book Eleven. And I've decided to be brave and tell you that it's called Ride Like You've Never Fallen. It's Nate and Lily's story and I can't wait to share that one with you. That should be coming out mid-December, just before Christmas.
After that I'm going straight on to Summer Lake Twelve, Ben's story, and the end of the original Summer Lake series. There's so much I need to say about that one, but I think I need to do a separate post next week to tell you all about it. For now, I'll say - yes, he does get his happily-ever-after. It will come out in late February. The reason I've put it off so long is that I've always seen his story as the end of the series. And although it will be the end of the original series, it won't be the last time we'll visit the lake. I think that's enough to answer the big questions, for now.
After Ben, I'm finally going to write Chance's series. That guy has been waiting, not so patiently for two and a half years. He has a lot of story to tell. I cannot wait to write it. It will be three books that will all come out next spring / early summer. I'm not going to publish the first one until they're all written and ready to go, and I plan to publish them one after the other about a month apart.
Eesh, I've got shaky hands now! It feels like I've just made a bunch of commitments that I now have to live up to. But in reality these are all the goals in my head, they're things I want to share with you, so why not say them out loud? Yulp.
And on that note, I'll love you and leave you in peace. It's Friday and I believe I have earned a glass of wine ;0) I hope you have a lovely weekend, and don't forget, I'll be giving away another signed paperback copy of Mason. I'll select the winner by Random and post it here next Friday, October 21. To enter just leave a comment below and tell me - or ask me - whatever you like ;0)
