Okay I've been working on boxsets for Brides of the West and Red River Valley Brides, and for your convenience I have had to break down the amount of books in the boxsets, and the reason is that the books are fairly long and to put them all in one set would make it hard for the average reader to be able to open the set and read it on line. So I broke it up. By putting all in one set it goes over a quarter of a million words. And too many pages to deal with. So I'm not trying to get more out of the boxsets, but want you to be able to open it on your computers and tablets without trouble. Family Matters and Family Ranch are much shorter novels than the Brides. So that's why I could fit it one boxset. But I purposely wrote longer ones because I read where readers like the longer books. So I'm complying with what the readers in general want.
As you all know, that know me, you realize I change covers a lot. There are many reasons for that, one is that covers become rather outdated and look old. Two, I'm saving myself some by not using the stock images too long. Three, I like to collect covers, and boy do I ever have a bunch. Sheri McGathey is the cover artist for my Brides of the West and a lot of other books. She does really good western covers and not all artist have or will. I have three or four sites that I prefer for covers, and I have done some of my own. But looking at them they just aren't as good as the professionals do them. So I replace them. If there is one you particularly don't want me to change, feel free to e-mail me and let me know.
I update and edit my books all the time. I have paid big dollars for edits but have found that they so often disagree on how to edit that it confuses me. However, I do want to let you know that for me editing is an on going process.
This year I am putting out a Christmas book Let It Snow. I hope you'll all enjoy it. If I get it done before the release date, which I'm pretty sure I will, I'll put it out a little earlier. But be looking for that one.
My books are growing over at Audible.com. And I hand pick the narrators. You'll find some really good work there and I hope you'll check them out. If you want to listen to one free, I can send coupons, let me know, but I'd sure appreciate you reviewing it, if you listen for free. Not for me, but for the marvelous job these narrators do on there. I am so very proud of them. So please give a listen. Send me an e-mail if you want a free coupon to listen to the whole story. My e-mail is email@example.com.
I'd like to say that fatasticfiction.com has a nice display of our books, please visit. If you want a print book I'd appreciate you buying directly from Createspace. This helps all authors.

Was a great change of pace that the "bad boy" can be the right one. Loved the concept of the story, and the fact that the writing took you along for the ride. Suggested this book to a few people, and would suggest to a least a few more. Well worth the reading it. Great story.
