Happy New Year, all! I hope your year is going well so far! Mine is (though, admittedly, I’m writing this on January 1st – when I had lunch with old friends, then another friend came over and hung out – we smoked meat (just got a smoker!) and watched Sully).
One of the things to look forward to any time of year is BOOKS!!! YAY!!!!
Of course, I’m planning to write and release my own books this year – I’m looking forward to those (not just getting them into the hands of readers, but finding out what happens myself as I write them ;)), but also to a bunch of others coming!
Jessica Keller’s Apple Orchard Bride is a January release! It’s already in stores but I haven’t read it yet. This one is super special because Jessica is a very dear friend and dedicated this book to me. I can’t wait to read it!
I’m super excited about Melissa Tagg’s summer release!!! No date yet, but All This Time is the final installment in the Walker Family Series!!! Raegan and Bear!! Pardon me while I jump up and down and squeal ;). You can sign up for her newsletter on her website to be kept up with the latest news!
Becky Wade is starting a new series called the Bradford Sisters. Book 1, True to You, releases in May!
Ruth Logan Herne’s Double S Ranch book 3 is also coming in May – Peace in the Valley.
Susan May Warren’s new series has a new addition this summer, too – A Matter of Trust in the Montana Rescue series!
Valerie Comer, Elizabeth Maddrey, Lee Tobin McClain, Annalisa Daughety (all InspyRomance authors) plus Mary Jane Hathaway and Danica Favorite have started their Arcadia Valley series with the Romance Grows in Arcadia Valley collection! It’s a set of interconnected stories – and each one is the beginning of a three book set by each author! So that’s EIGHTEEN books coming in the not too distant future! What a fantastic idea! Elizabeth posted about it here.
One of the… problems when reading so many indie authors like I do is that their release schedule isn’t quite so “out there” as early. Those who have books coming out that I’m looking forward to but don’t necessarily have titles or links: Valerie Comer, Ginger Solomon, Kristen Ethridge, Autumn Macarthur, Lindi Peterson, and SO MANY OTHERS.
These, of course, are just contemporary authors (and not even nearly all of them)! There’s a bunch of historical authors I’m looking forward to new books from (Tamara Leigh is working on one I can’t wait for!) and so many others!!!!
What about you? What books are you looking forward to? Let me know in the comments to be entered for a chance to win your choice of one of my ebooks :).
