It has been SO cold here. I guess the universe is preparing me for winters in Spokane!
Right now, I’m working on a brand new Silhoutette Special Edition called “Sierra’s Homecoming”. It’s so much fun! The book is the first of two stories about half-sisters who are descendents of Holt and Lorelei McKettrick, of “McKettrick’s Choice”, and it has a paranormal element. It’s the “parallel lives” book I’ve been wanting to write for years and years…Sierra returns to the house on the Triple M (it was Holt’s house in the historical stories), only to find she’s sharing it with Hannah McKettrick. For Hannah, it’s 1919! Both women have love stories of their own, and they connect in powerful ways, despite the fact that they’re living in different centuries! The book will come out in December of 2006—watch for updates on the website.
I’ve got so many wonderful projects going, it’s hard to keep track of them all.
Next on the writing docket is “McKettrick’s Luck”, the first of three modern McKettrick tales, to be published in February, March and April of 2007. That’s a while, I know, but once the stories start rolling, you won’t have to wait long in between!
Don’t worry–there’s a lot coming in the meantime. “One Last Look”, the final Clare and Tony story, will be in the stores the last Tuesday in December. This December. The paperback version of “McKettrick’s Choice” comes in late February. The new hardcover historical, “The Man from Stone Creek”, arrives in late May. Finally, on the last Tuesday in October, there is the first Mojo book–the beginning of a new series of romantic suspense novels starring Mojo Sheepshanks. It’s called “Deadly Gamble”, and will be published as a trade paperback.
So, for those of you who say I don’t write fast enough, I’ve definitely pushed up my sleeves!
