What I’m Working On

I’m so excited about my current works in progress that I had trouble sleeping last night.  (This often happens, which is why I try not to think about what I’m writing a couple hours before bedtime.  But sometimes in the middle of the night, I’ll get ideas, and that’s when it’s hard to sleep.  I won’t complain.  It’s fun when the stories pretty much write themselves because it lets me know I’m on the right track.)

All that aside, here’s what I’m working on at the moment…

The Earl’s Stolen Bride (Marriage by Deceit: Book 4)

The Earl's Stolen Bride

This will finish up this particular series, but…we will see these characters again in my next Regency series, Marriage by Arrangement.

Quick note about Malcolm’s romance: Malcolm Jasper (Melissa’s brother in Ruined by the Earl) is going to be the hero in one of the books (His Wicked Lady), which might be the book to start that series.  If anyone needs a lady who doesn’t care about the rules of the Ton and will loosen him up, it’s Malcolm.  He just might come to befriend Logan.

Back to The Earl’s Stolen Bride: I am at 19,000 words in The Earl’s Stolen Bride.  (My total word count goal is 60,000 to 65,000 words, so that gives you an idea of my progress.)  Yesterday, I had a “light bulb moment” where I finally knew where to go in this book.

All I knew when I started was that Orlando had been pining for Chloe for over a year, and he finally gets his chance to be with her when her husband dies.  But he had to make his move fast before her family could arrange for her to marry someone else after her mourning period was over.  Beyond that, I had no idea where I was going in this book.

I am not a plotter.  It doesn’t work for me.  So I pretty much have to write until I know what to do because it’s only by writing that I truly understand the characters.  This method does have it’s moments of panic because a part of me wonders if I can actually pull it off.  But it is also very exciting because I never know where any story will go when I start it.  It’s like going on a journey and discovering new things.  This is why I love the writing part of creating a book so much.

A Groom’s Promise (sequel to Bride by Arrangement)

a groom's promise

I’m between 1/2-3/4 of the way done with my novella “The Marriage Bargain” in this anthology.  I’m thrilled at how well this story is coming together.  My hero is about to make a bargain with the heroine’s father for the honor of marrying her.  I’m a little over 27,000 words, and my estimate is that this will be about 40,000 words long.

Wagon Trail Bride

wagontrailbrideebook2

Now that Ruined by the Earl is out, I can get serious about writing in this one.  I’m still hovering at 10,000 words (out of 55,000 to 65,000 I’d like to write total).  This is Richard Larson’s book, and though we do see his family, the focus is mostly on others in the wagon train.  This is going to be the first book in the Pioneer Series, so in addition to getting into Richard and Amanda’s romance, I’m also laying the groundwork to the next two books I’m planning in the series.  This has caused me to go slower since I’m figuring out what to do with them.

One romance will feature a young woman who is “bugging” Amanda for most of the book because she insists on talking to her even though Amanda would rather be alone.  This character (Laura) will be the heroine of book 2, which I have already titled The Marriage Agreement.  The other romance will feature the young man (Joe) who will try to come between Amanda and Richard in this book.  I don’t have the title (or plot) for his book yet, but it’ll be #3.

The Convenient Mail Order Bride

It took me months to figure out how to go about writing this one.  I had originally titled this Stolen, but since I had “The Earl’s Stolen Bride” for the Regency, I nixed that title.   Then I had to decide what to do with the hero because he’s the one who’s going to have the main source of conflict.  I think I know where I’m heading, but I only started this one, so I have to keep writing to figure it all out.  I can’t figure the story out until I write it (which I know makes no sense to authors who plot their books), but it’s just how it works for me.

Betting On Love

I’m working on this when time permits, which means not a whole lot.  But a little here and there adds up after a while. :)

Ruined by the Earl is Now Available!

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

This is book 3 in the Marriage by Deceit Series.  I am currently working on book 4 (The Earl’s Stolen Bride), and this will be the last book in this series.  I am behind in writing it, so it probably won’t be out until June or July.

But these characters in Regency world will still show up from time to time in the next Regency series I have planned out.  I’ll go more into that series when I get to it.  (I want to get back to historical westerns for a while.)

I just wanted everyone to know I have plans for another series in this Regency world.  Malcolm (Melissa’s brother in Ruined by the Earl) is going to be featured in one of them.  So at the end of Ruined by the Earl, what happens with Malcolm in relation to White’s will play a part in Malcolm’s future book.

For the time being, here is where you can find Ruined by the Earl.  It should be up at iBooks in a couple weeks.

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Kobo

Smashwords

For fun, here is the page I created at Booklaunch.io with reviews by the characters who play a major role in the book.

Interview with Melissa and Logan (Heroine and Hero in Ruined by the Earl) with Malcolm Jasper (Melissa’s brother) who isn’t at all happy about this book

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

I finally got the description for Ruined by the Earl, and here it is…

After losing all of his money in a reckless bet, Logan Breckman, the Earl of Toplyn, needs to marry a lady from a wealthy family–and fast. So he does the only thing he can think of and picks one at random to trick into marriage.

Unfortunately for Miss Melissa Jasper, she happens to be in the right place at the wrong time. Before she knows it, he comes up to her carriage and kisses her…and she is doomed. Now she can’t marry the gentleman she was hoping to and she’s bound to a cad who thinks of little else but himself.

Logan is the first to admit he’s far from perfect, but being with a gentleman who knows how to ignite a passionate spark is a lot better than being stuck with one who’ll put a lady to sleep. Of course, she won’t thank him for forcing her hand in marriage yet. But he has no doubt that sooner or later, she’ll come to understand he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

*****************************************

Miss Jasper (aka Melissa)

Miss Jasper (aka Melissa)

Melissa: Who wrote that garbage?

Ruth: You’re calling the description I painstakingly wrote “garbage”?

Melissa: Of course, I am.  It’s filth.  I mean, read it back to yourself.  “Sooner or later, she’ll come to understand he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to her”?  It’s garbage.

Logan: What’s wrong with that?

Melissa: It makes me seem weak, like I should be falling at your feet in utter adoration and thanking my lucky stars that you chose me, of all ladies, to bless with a kiss.

Logan: There’s nothing wrong with that.  In fact, it’s perfect.

Melissa: It’s not perfect, you cad.  It’s awful.  I will never, ever, fall at your feet in adoration.  In fact, I’ll never be glad I had to marry you.  I’m going to mourn the loss of my happiness every day for the rest of my life.

Lord Toplyn (aka Logan)

Lord Toplyn (aka Logan)

Logan: I don’t understand why.  I’ll make an ideal husband.  I fully support a lady who speaks her mind, and I don’t take myself too seriously as some stuffy gentlemen do.

Malcolm: Is that “stuffy gentlemen” comment directed at me?

Logan: Who else would I be talking about?

Malcolm: Words cannot describe how much I hate you.

Logan: Good.  Then don’t try.  There’s no reason for you to be here.

Malcolm: You kissed my sister at Lord Roderick’s ball without having the decency to even find out if she was already in love with someone or not.

Logan: I didn’t have time to go around asking something like that.  Time was of the essence.  I had to secure a betrothal right away.  Melissa just happened to be there.

Melissa: You don’t even care about me. Why would I ever be glad to be married to you?

Logan: You have it all wrong, my joyful tulip.  I cared about you.  I’m very happy you’re a beautiful lady.

Melissa: Is that all you care about?  How I look?

Logan: Well, it does make getting the heir a lot easier if I’m attracted to you.

Malcolm (Melissa's brother)

Malcolm (Melissa’s brother)

Malcolm: Duel!  I demand a duel a once.

Logan: Don’t be silly.  A duel will accomplish nothing.

Malcolm: It’ll get you out of our lives, you pathetic slug.

Logan: Was “slug” a word back in Regency times?

Malcolm: What do you care about a word’s origin?  You’re wearing modern clothes with a modern hairstyle.

Logan: You have a point.  I offered to come on here naked so I could fit in with the Regency time period.  People look the same regardless of the time period if they don’t wear any clothes.  However, Ruth was surprisingly against it, so I came in clothes.

Ruth: I want to keep this blog PG, Logan.

Logan: Which is a shame.

Malcolm: No, it’s not.  None of us want to go blind from looking at you without clothes on.

Logan: You’re just upset that I’m better looking than you.

Malcolm: That has nothing to do with it at all.  It has to do with what’s decent and right, and you, my lord, are none of the above.

Logan: Hmm….  I’m pretty sure “none of the above” is a modern expression, Malcolm.  You might want to rephrase that.

Malcolm: A duel!  I demand a duel!

Melissa: Who cares what words were said back in the Regency time period or not?  My life is about to be destroyed.

Lord Waxman (according to Logan)

Lord Waxman (according to Logan)

Logan: It would only be destroyed if you actually married this ultra-dork. *snickers as he puts up the picture on the left* And yes, I know no one said “ultra-dork” back then, nor did they wear those clothes.  But trust me, this is what Lord Waxman is like.  See why I need to save the fair and enchanting Melissa?

Melissa: *takes out her handkerchief* My life is over.  There is no point in going on.

Malcolm: Melissa, I’ll figure a way out of this.  Somehow, we can get you out of this marriage.

Logan: You can try, but it won’t work.

Malcolm: Oh, shut up.  No one wants you here.

Logan: That’s not true.  I overheard Ruth saying I’m her favorite Regency character.  In fact, she even added that out of all the Regencies she’s written, Ruined by the Earl is her favorite.

Ruth: That is true.

Malcolm: Have you no sense of decency, Ruth?  I don’t think I will be a hero in one of your upcoming Regencies when you work on your next series.

Ruth: But we already signed the contract.  Your book is going to be in the Marriage by Arrangement series.  I don’t know which number in the series it’ll be yet.  You need a wife who’ll loosen you up.  You’re much too stuffy.

Logan: *shoots Malcolm a pointed look*  See?  Even she thinks you need to relax.

Malcolm: I can tell when I’m not wanted.  Come on, Melissa.  We don’t need to put up with this.  This book will not end up with you and Logan “happily married” as Ruth claims.

*Malcolm and a crying Melissa leave*

Logan: It does end up with me and Melissa being happily married, doesn’t it?

Ruth: It’s a romance, Logan.  All romances have a happy ending.

Logan: That’s good.  I’d hate to think Malcolm would really be stupid enough to challenge me to a duel.

Ruined by the Earl will be Available Soon but the Epilogue was Removed (Only People on My Email List Will Be Able To Read It)

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

Ruined by the Earl comes out this weekend/early next week.  

This pretty much determines how fast Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo will get it up.  Smashwords gets it up right away.  For iBooks, it depends on how fast Smashwords will approve the version for premium distribution and send it to iBooks.  There are lots of elements I can’t control.  But I am currently on Chapter 21 of edits.  So either Saturday or Sunday is the day I will be uploading this book to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.

Those of you on my email list will be the first to know when it’s available on these sites.

And speaking of my email list…

The epilogue for Ruined by the Earl will only be given to those of you on my email list.

Why?  Because the epilogue in Ruined by the Earl takes place after the events in The Earl’s Stolen Bride.  I was going to originally put it in.  (It’s been written.)  But my editing team didn’t realize Ruined by the Earl actually begins before Helena (Lady Seyton) marries Camden (the Duke of Ashbourne) in Love Lessons With the Duke.  Then about a couple weeks later, Helena and Camden get married via special license.

Helena and Camden didn’t have to wait for the banns to be read, like Melissa and Logan did.  Melissa (heroine in Ruined by the Earl) was not invited to the wedding because Helena isn’t good enough friends with her yet.  She will be by the end of the series.  But she wasn’t at this point in time.

It all has to do with points of view and how important an event is to each character I’m writing.  Melissa was so traumatized with her own impending marriage to Logan, she forgot when Helena was getting married until after she got married.  As for Logan, he was so preoccupied with himself he didn’t care when the wedding happened, though I did mention it about 1/2 way into the book.  (I love Logan.  He’s a lot of fun, but he is self-absorbed.)

But since this whole thing confused my editing team, I added a very brief mention of Helena marrying Camden in Melissa’s thoughts.  I hope that clears up the confusion, but beyond that, I’d have to go into “narration mode” which is me (the author) interrupting the story to tell you what is happening, and this is a bad storytelling technique.  So I’m not going to interrupt the flow of the story to go into a huge explanation.  Instead, I’m doing it here in this post.

If people on my editing team were confused about the timing Helena and Camden’s marriage, then the time frame for the The Earl’s Stolen Bride will confuse everyone.  The epilogue to Ruined by the Earl takes place in 1817.   The Earl’s Stolen Bride takes place in 1816.  The time frame will throw some people off.

I only wrote the epilogue because several people told me they enjoy reading them.  The epilogue doesn’t really add anything to the story.  It’s simply an addition to the happy ending.  You won’t miss anything by not reading it.

But since it is a nice addition to the story, I am going to put it in the email I sent out to those of you who have signed up for my email list.

So when you get the email from me saying the book is available, I’ll be adding the epilogue below the links.  Save the epilogue and read it after you finish the book.  If you aren’t already signed up for my email list, you can do so at this link.  (You don’t have to put your name in the box.  It’s optional.)

Also, if you got the email notice when Love Lessons With the Duke was out, you are already on my list, so you don’t have to sign up again.  I get a few of the same people signing up and don’t know why.  If you aren’t receiving the emails, maybe they are going to your spam folder.

Lord Toplyn (Hero in Ruined by the Earl) Talks About His Book …. With an Appearance by Melissa (Heroine)

Logan (aka Lord Toplyn) is here to discuss what he thinks about his role in Ruined by the Earl.

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

***

Today I thought I’d do something I haven’t done in a long time.  I thought I’d bring in a character from one of my current works in progress to talk to.  Granted, this book is in its editing stages, but it hasn’t been published yet, which is why I still consider it a work in progress.  The book isn’t done until it’s published.

Logan: And that would be…?

Ruth: Next weekend.  This is not on pre-order, so I’ll upload directly to Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and Smashwords.  From Smashwords, it will take another couple weeks to get up on places like iBooks, Flipkart, Scribd, and other channels Smashwords distributes to.  I probably won’t be making the post with the links until April 7 because it’s Easter weekend in the United States, and my kids will be off school from April 3-6.  I’m sure a lot of people will be out of town, too.

But anyway, I brought Logan in because I thought he might be fun to talk to.

Logan: Thank you.  I happen to agree that I’m a lot of fun.

Ruth: I know you do, Logan.  But I will add that you are not for everyone.  My sense of humor appeals to some but not others, so if people enjoyed my other comedic heroes such as Nathan in What Nathan Wants and Christopher Robinson in His Reluctant Lady, I think they’ll enjoy you, too.  Logan isn’t the kind of character you should take seriously.

Lord Toplyn (aka Logan)

Lord Toplyn (aka Logan)

Logan: Laughter is good for the soul.  Besides, I’m gorgeous.  Just look at my picture on the left.  While you’re reading about me, you can imagine me, sexy and sultry.  I believe you ladies like to call men like me “eye candy”.

Ruth: Some do.  Some would just say good looking.

Logan: Well, since you picked out this image, then it only shows you have excellent taste because I would pick this for me, too, even if I’m not shirtless.

Ruth: I don’t like the shirtless guy images, Logan.

Logan: Just so everyone knows, I look awesome without a shirt on.  My darling rose is about to be very happy she got to marry me instead of that weakling Lord Waxman.

Miss Jasper (aka Melissa)

Miss Jasper (aka Melissa)

Melissa: That’s not true.  I’m not happy at all to be stuck with you, you cad.

Logan: Wow!  Melissa, you’re smoking hot!  I am so glad you’re the heroine in this story.  If we had a contest for all of Ruth’s heroines, you would be the most beautiful of them all.  I can’t wait for our wedding night.

Melissa: If you think you’re going to touch me at any time in this book, you’re wrong.   I will never let you into my bed.

Logan: That’s fine.  I have no problem with the carriage, a gazebo, a desk, a bench, or any other place your little heart desires.  Wherever you want to make love to me is fine.  I’m not picky.

Melissa: Ruth, can’t you make this a sweet romance?

Logan: No way!  I don’t want to just look at you and give you a chaste kiss.  You’re way too gorgeous for that kind of thing.  You need a man who’ll make mad passionate love to you, and often.

Melissa: I’d rather be stuck in a pit of slimy, slithering snakes through the entire story.

Ruth: Actually, snakes aren’t slimy.  They’re smooth and dry.  They just appear slimy because of their scales and the way they–

Melissa: Is this a romance or a science book because I fail to see why anyone here cares whether or not snakes are slimy?

Ruth: I just wanted people to know I don’t really think they’re slimy.

Melissa: What an ego.  Like people care about what you know or don’t know.  This book isn’t about you.  It’s about how Logan is going to ruin my life.

Logan: I’ll do nothing of the sort.

Melissa: Yes, you will.  It’s right there in the title of the book:  “Ruined by the Earl”

Logan: All right.  I agree.  The title should be something else.  How about “Taken by the Earl” or “Pleasured by the Earl” or “Enraptured by the Earl”?

Melissa: Can your ego get any bigger?

Logan: I have a healthy dose of self-esteem, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Melissa: I wish I’d never been up for the role of your wife.  I was supposed to marry Lord Waxman.

Lord Waxman

Lord Waxman

Logan: You mean, this guy?  Come on.  He’s a total geek.

Melissa: *gasps* He doesn’t look like that.

Logan: According to me, he does, and since this is primarily a post featuring me, I get to show the world what he is really like.

Melissa: He is not like that at all!  He’s decent and honorable and kind and–

Logan: I’m yawning already.  You just listed out a bunch of ridiculous traits that are reminiscent of Lord Roderick in The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife.  Look, if you want bland and boring, you go to Lord Waxman.  If you want fun and exciting (and incredibly good looking), you go to me.  You know what they say, if you want it to be good girl, get yourself a bad boy.

Ruth: Actually, Logan, “If You Want it to be Good Girl (Get Yourself a Bad Boy)” is a song by the Backstreet Boys.

Melissa: Well, aren’t you the walking encyclopedia today.  First snakes and now this.  Got anything else you want to annoy us with?

Logan: Regardless, the song fits our spicy romance, Melissa.

Melissa: It’s just my luck I happen to have an author who wants to write sex in her romances.

Ruth: Oh Melissa, just wait until you see what you end up doing in the book.

Melissa: *frowns*  What do you have me do?

Ruth: You’ll find out soon enough.  This post is getting long, and I want to get some more written for my novella “The Marriage Bargain” in A Groom’s Promise before my kids come home from school.  *leaves*

Melissa: Ruth, you can’t leave me without answering me.  Ruth?  Ruth!

Logan: I guess it’s just you and me, my sweet wildflower.

Melissa: *gags and hurries out the door*

Logan: It’s good for her, I’m a patient person. *winks and leaves*

Got the Update on Books I’m Doing

I’m not going to give specific dates on these, but this is what I’m planning on doing for the rest of the year.  It doesn’t mean it’ll all be published this year.  Some things I work on will be out next year.

Ruined by the Earl ebook cover

This is still with one of my awesome editors.  I have just printed out a couple of chapters to start going over my final read through, which I then will compare to the editor’s notes.  I can say for sure this will be out in April.  I’m just not sure of the exact date.

a groom's promise

This one will probably be finished first, but it won’t be out until June or July because it is a co-authored book.  Co-authored projects take longer because there’s someone else involved in the process.  Also, it will go with my awesome publisher, Parchment & Plume.

I’m doing one novella, and Janet Syas Nitsick is doing the other.  So this is an anthology.  Right now I’m at chapter 7.  I expect there to be 14 chapters, give or take a couple chapters.  So really, I’m at the halfway point in this one.

The Earl's Stolen Bride

I expect to finish this one next, but given the conferences I’ll be going to in April and May, I might not be able to get this out until June.  At the moment, I’m at chapter 5, and this will be a full-length novel.  So I’m expected 21-24 chapters total.

wagontrailbrideebook2

I want to get this one out this summer, so I pushed back Royal Hearts.  I’ve had several people ask me about Richard Larson’s book, but no one has asked about Royal Hearts.  Because of this, I’m pushing the date back on Royal Hearts.  I aim to get books out that people are asking for if I can think of a suitable plot to go with it.  And I do have a good, solid plot for this one…finally.  This will also go with my publisher, Parchment & Plume.

At the moment, I’m at chapter 3.  So yeah, I have a ways to go yet.

Betting on Love ebook

This is going to be a short, light read.  It’s a prequel to go with my novella in Bride by Design under the pen name, Barbara Joan Russell.  I expect this out during the summer, and I plan to make it free since it is going to be so short.

I’m thinking it’ll be about 10 chapters, but we’ll see.

Bride by Convenience (A Mail Order Bride Historical Western Romance)

Cover Coming Soon

I don’t know if I can get this one out in the summer or not.  If not, it’ll wait until January.  This is another reason I decided to push Royal Hearts back.  I want to get this one out this year.  I’ve been itching to do this story ever since I got the idea for it.  I was originally going to put it under my pen name, Barbara Joan Russell….but it quickly occurred to me that I want sex in this book.  It’s important to the romance sex is in it.  I know sweet mail order bride stories are widely popular, but I have to go in the direction the story wants to go, and when you read it, you’ll understand why sex must be in it.  The hero’s self-esteem will be too wrapped up in it, which makes it a key element to the plot.  (I don’t put sex in a book just to have sex in it.  There is always a point to it.)

I haven’t started this one.

royal hearts ebook cover

I plan to work on this during the summer months when the kids are home.  I can’t get much written while they’re off school because I do a lot with them during the summer.  But I can revise and rewrite rather easily.  So I shifted this to November.  I need at least one month for it to be on Smashwords since it’s in pre-order and needs that long to get to B&N, Kobo, and iBooks by the release date.  Otherwise, I’d plan this out in October.  (This is just another reason I decided I hate pre-orders.)

the royal pursuit ebook cover

While I’m working on Royal Hearts, I figured I might as well work on The Royal Pursuit, which also needs a revision/rewrite.  Since it’s light work, it can be done in the summer.

TheRancher'sWife ebook cover

Stephannie and I are currently working on modifying this one.  I’m going to plan this one out for January, but it’s possible we might get it ready before then.  We’re really about halfway into it.  We’re swapping scenes and doing some light rewrites when necessary.

We are going to work on this one, too.  We need to clean up The Rancher’s Wife before getting to it, though.  Like the one above, we’re about halfway into this one.  I have no idea when it’ll be out.

Pushing Back Some Release Dates for My Upcoming Books

This isn’t something I want to do, but after signing up to go on two conferences (one in April and another at the end of May) and finding out one of my kids threw up today, I began to feel stressed out.  And after taking a moment to sit down and evaluate why I was feeling overwhelmed, I realized it was the fact that I’m not near being done where I need to be.  If I want to make my current deadlines, I’d have to sprint it, and if I do that, I might lose the quality in the work.

Since I’m probably going to have a series of kids getting sick in the next couple days, I’m going to have to figure out new release months for the current works in progress.  I don’t want to make any rash decisions.  I want to have time to sit and think it through.  Right now, I’m frazzled.  It’s been one of those days, and I’m not thinking straight.  What I do know is that I need to push back the release months so I don’t get stuck feeling like I need to frantically finish up my books.

I’m sorry.  I know some of you pre-ordered Royal Hearts.  I’m going to try to push back the month on this one.  There’s just too many other things going on.

And I promise I will never do a pre-order ever again.  I can’t handle the pressure it brings.
