I am a planner. Give me an Excel spreadsheet and I am like a pig in shit. Add in notebooks and diaries and I am in seventh heaven!
I have today sat and planned by 2016 writing. This has been impacted greatly by me inserting Texas 7, and by various emails and comments I see that make me consider what I might write next.
Some of the things that have been included:
A new series, Legacy, three books called Gabriel (#1), Kyle (#2), and Danny (#3). These are an ofshoot from my Texas series and are based around the three men who gave evidence at the trial of Hank Castille in Texas Fall. I couldn't leave these guys alone, they all want their own stories. Of course Riley and Jack make an appearance... Danny (#3) will be my Christmas 2016 book.
Montana 1, Crooked Tree Ranch, is back to me in November and will be re-released with a couple of added chapters and also a full re-edit. I am so excited about this - I have been carrying the story of book 2, The Rancher's Son, in my head for over two years now! There will also be a Montana 3, but the title is as yet undecided!
And then there is Sanctuary. I am in the middle of writing Sanctuary 8, Accidental Hero, and this is book 1 in a trilogy of books Sanctuary 8, 9 and 10). All three will be with you in 2016.
HEROES & ENGLISH HEARTS
As will Deacon's Law. Poor DL got pushed back so many times for various reasons. As has Sixways Lane! Don't worry, both will be with you in 2016.
I realised I haven't left space for Bodyguards 6... mutters to self about slotting it in somewhere...
So the list in the general order that I plan to write and release is:
Texas Wedding (Texas 7)
Accidental Hero (Sanctuary 8)
Love's Design (Bodyguards 5)
Crooked Tree Ranch (Montana 1 - re-release)
The Rancher's son (Montana 2)
Untitled (Sanctuary 9)
Deacon's Law (Heroes 3 - last in the series)
Gabriel (Legacy #1)
Sixways Lane (English Hearts #2)
Untitled (Montana 3 - last in the series)
Untitled (Sanctuary 10)
Kyle (Legacy #2)
Untitled (Bodyguards 6 - last in the series)
Danny (Legacy #3)
I really hope I have covered everyones favourite series books... I don't think I have any room to slot any more in! ROFL...
And don't even get me started on slotting in the co-authoring!
