I’m excited to announce that my latest project, Love on the Mend, has just released! This is an e-novella that loosely ties in to my previous novel Full Steam Ahead, though the characters and setting are separate enough to stand alone.
Since I am one of those slow writers who only manages to put out one full-length novel a year, I decided that it would be fun to try to give my readers some additional content in between my main releases. That’s when the idea of adding novellas came about. It started with A Cowboy Unmatched, the final installment of the Archer brother series. It debuted as part of a collection entitled A Match Made in Texas as the first of four stories, then later it was released as an e-single. It did so well that my publisher decided to let me try another . . . this time on my own.
So when Darius and Nicole encountered a runaway boy in Full Steam Ahead, a boy who refused to talk about his past, I knew that I had to dig into young Jacob’s story and find a way to help him make peace with his past. And, of course, find the perfect woman for him along the way. Well, after 17 years and a brutal stint as a doctor during the Civil War, Jacob is finally ready to return to the home he left all those years ago and lay his past to rest. Only his past is still alive and kicking.
A story of redemption and more than one type of healing, Love on the Mend, is a quick, fun read that also packs an emotional punch. I hope you’ll give it a try. And at only $2.99 (or less), it’s a bargain!
Oh, and since this is a single novella release, Jacob and Mollie’s story will only be available in e-book format (Kindle, Nook, etc). I know, I know. I hear some of you groaning. I held out for years, too, before I finally gave in and bought a Kindle. I love print books. Always have, always will. However, with so many options and sales available these days specifically for e-books, there are some definite advantages to having an e-reader. The good news is that you don’t have to spend a single penny to get one. If you have a smart phone or tablet or even just a computer (I know you have one of those or you wouldn’t be able to see this post), you can get a free Kindle reader app. I read e-books for over a year on my phone for just this purpose.
- So which do you prefer? E-books or paper?
- Do you enjoy books with carry-over characters, or do you prefer a completely fresh cast of characters for each story?
