I’ve signed a 3-book deal with Choose NOW Publishing, a start-up traditional press!
The deal includes three contemporary romance novels in the “Farm Fresh Romance” series, formerly known as Green Acres. The first novel, Raspberries and Vinegar (previously titled Domino’s Game), will release in both paperback and digital on August 1, 2013.
It will be followed by Sweeter than Honey (formerly titled Check Mate) on February 1, 2014, and the still-untitled final book in the series on August 1, 2014.
Yes, I’m going to be busy! Raspberries and Vinegar has been written and polished for several years. It will be off to the editor in just a few days. The cover will be ready by mid-June.
Sweeter than Honey is written but needs a round or two of homegrown edits and critiques before heading to the editor in late October. And the third book needs to be written.
Breaking ground with the Farm Fresh Romance series, Raspberries and Vinegar finds Josephine Shaw and her friends renovating a dilapidated farm with their sights set on more than just their own property. Transforming the town with their sustainable lifestyle and focus on local foods is met with more resistance than they expected, especially by temporary neighbor, Zachary Nemesek. Jo needs to learn that a little sweet makes the tart more tasty.
Farm Fresh Romance is a series filled with sweet simplicity and a bit of zing.
