My Publishing Plan for 2016

Many of you are aware that I have a serious backlog of unpublished books. What you may not know is that I have a number of unpublished short stories, as well. I have recently expanded my editing process, which will permit me to publish a new book every two months, and a short story every other month.

What this means is that since I published “Warm Oklahoma Winter” earlier this month, I will be publishing a short story at the beginning of May. Then going forward, I will be alternating the publishing of a new book with that of a short story until I get caught up.

I love writing. I can get frustrated if I haven’t written for a time. When I first started writing in earnest, after retirement, I wrote as many as 12 books in one year! Now, I have settled quite happily into the routine of writing four books a year.

At this time, one editor has one book, another editor is working on a second, and I am busily writing a third. See the issue?

So, I expect this new publishing schedule will solve all issues, and I shouldn’t have any more situations as I did this past winter when I went 4 1/2 months between published books!

Please enjoy this new stream of books, and check out the short stories, as well, as they become available. The short story to be published is “The Retirement Flight.” Look for it around May 5th!



Warm Oklahoma Winter

Warm OK WinterFour days ago, I published my 17th book, “Warm Oklahoma Winter.” This may well be my very favorite of all the books I’ve written. A lesbian historical romance, this is my first foray into writing a story that takes place in the past. I’ve loved writing all my books, but I particularly enjoyed writing this one!

It takes place in 1896, a few years after the Cherokee Land Rush. Minnie, an orphan from the slums of New York City, is placed on the Orphan Train, a real train that brought children west from eastern cities from 1854 to 1929, to find families to adopt them.

She winds up in Perry, Oklahoma, as does Grace, a young, married woman with a young son, Isaac. This is their story.

This is a love story that I relished writing because of all the historical detail I found in doing research for this book. I’ve always loved history. I was born in Oklahoma, and my own grandfather participated in the Cherokee Land Rush, so it is a subject near and dear to me, personally.

I hope you enjoy reading this book at least half as much as I did in getting it down on paper. Let me know what you think.
