It’s Saturday and the kids are on the mend. I’m feeling good, could also be the huge sugar rush from eating a bunch of chocolate chips cookies I baked awhile ago… Editing is going well for To Love A Stranger. Should have it completed by the end of this upcoming week, barring no illnesses. Hmm.
And so I’ve been mentioning these changes. Well, I’m ready to spill. Nothing too drastic. Worth The Price will be my first venture into the world of self-publishing and the first of three books taking place in the fictional town of Hart’s Fall, Montana. Each will feature a different hero and heroine.
I’m not completely finishing with working with a publisher, as I still have the sequel to Riding The Storm to be completed and submitted to Evernight Publishing for approval. However, many factors went into my decision to venture on my own, so to speak. I mentioned once that I have so many stories going on inside my head. I need to get them out without worrying if they will be accepted by a publisher and see the light of day, or an e-reader. I need to set my own schedule for publication based on how busy things get with being a mom. I believe this will be mutually beneficial to me and those of you who like my books.
Since I plan on putting out stories with a longer word count, I can get started on editing and publishing them, hopefully within the same time frame as I needed for my novellas since I will be setting the publication date. Now, because I’m self publishing, doesn’t mean I doing it solo. I have a wonderful, truly amazing friend and fellow romance author who is helping to guide me. Julia Rachel Barrett, you are too good to be true! (But she is folks). Not only that, I have an extremely talented and insightful editor who’s not afraid to dig deep into my writing. My books will continue to have professional standards, including cover art.
As soon as I get that I will post it. Blurb and excerpt will come later, as this book is still a work in progress until publication. I can’t give an exact date yet, but I’m aiming for sometime in August or the latest in September. Basically, not until I believe it’s in tip top shape 🙂
