I know that, I have written to you before and hope you don't mind me writing again, but today I purchased your new book called Her Rodeo Man an started reading it, and wow not done yet but so far its excellent, can't put the book down. You're an excellent writer and love reading your books.
This email brightened my day last week. I really do enjoy hearing from readers and learning that they liked my books. Not to sound cliche, but it is one of the best rewards a writer can receive.
So much has been happening these past few months, I'm not sure where to start. The book Sandy is talking about, HER RODEO MAN, was just released early March. It's the second book in my Reckless, Arizona series and continues the story of the Beckett family who, after twenty-five years of living with lies, are trying to reconcile. Then third book, THE BULL RIDER'S SON will be out in July, just in time for my trip to NYC and the Romance Writer's of America National conference.
I'm also excited to be part of Harlequin's third continuity series, The Barons of Texas. My contribution, THE TEXAN'S SURPRISE SON, is book number five of six and was released last October. Think an updated version of the TV show Dallas and you have The Barons of Texas, a wealthy oil family with hunky rodeo heroes and plenty of sizzling drama.
On the horizon is returning to Mustang Valley and expanding my former successful 4-book series from a few years ago. This time, I'll be telling the story of the Salazar-Dempsey clan, a fractured family brought back together by the death of their father, the Dos Estrellas Ranch, and the sanctuary that is home to two hundred abandoned and neglected mustangs. Three brothers and a cousin must learn to put their difference aside if they are to work together and pull the ranch out of financial jeopardy. Of course, they will meet their match along the way and (hopefully) fall in love. The first of these new four books, HER HOLIDAY RANCHER, will be out November of 2015, and celebrates my first release as a full-time writer. I'm happy to report that I've finally taken the plunge and quit the day job. Fingers crossed all goes well!
I guess that's all the news for now. Or most of it. If, like Sandy, you feel inclined to drop me a line, I would love to hear from you. As always...
