Last month I talked about a letter I had written to myself that contained goals. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had accomplished all five things on the list. One of the things on the list was to request my rights back for one of my Love Inspired books, Montana Match. A week after I wrote that blog post I received word that the book was approved for all rights reversion. That means I can reissue the book, which I plan to do in January 2020.
Two months ago I wrote about finishing the last book in my Front Porch Promises series, A PLACE TO FIND LOVE. The book will release this week on November 14. It is now available for preorder. You can find buy links by clicking on the title. I mention this because Montana Match was supposed to be the first book in the series, but I had sold it to Love Inspired with the hopes of selling them the other books I had planned, but my editor and I could never come to an agreement on the content of the other stories in the series. At that time I only had three books in mind for the series, so I decided to publish the stories on my own and regretted having sold that first book to them. So now that I have this book back, I want to make it the first book in the series. That’s why the blog title is “A New Beginning.”
I plan to make additions to the last scene of the book to tie it in to the current book #1, A PLACE TO CALL HOME. I am also giving the book a new cover and title. Here it is.
I have a question for readers. If you have read a whole series of books, would you go back and read a new book #1 to find out where it all started?
I’ll be giving away an ebook copy of A FAMILY TO CALL OURS, the middle book in the Front Porch Promises series. It is perfect for this time of year because it starts in the fall and goes through Thanksgiving and Christmas and ends as the characters bring in a new year. I will choose a winner on November 14, 2019 at 9PM MST from the people who leave a comment.
