A Little Series Love

Two days ago, I finished my 15th (I had to write them all down and count) novel. It's historical romance called Love Remembers When, the sequel to Love Won't Run, also finished and waiting for me to edit it.

I can't recall whether I mentioned much about these books (the series is called A Sawyer's Folly Novel), but they're set in a fictional northwestern Arkansas town called Sawyer's Folly. Erm, basically the town is named for a crazy dude who was searching for his departed wife and stumbled off a bluff. Oops. So far no important characters have done this. Luckily.

While writing Love Won't Run, I introduced the hero, Lo, and there was some talk about his brother. His niece also has a big role--she was left with him by his sister, who ran off to marry a denture salesmen. In LWR, it's a romance where Lo tries to find help training his niece to be a proper lady. At the end, his brother comes home. So we get the hero of Love Remembers When as a guy with a tragedy in his past and the love of his life returns to Sawyer's Folly as well.

They're fun 55-56,000 words novels. I'm looking forward to getting them out. I wrote Love Won't Run last year during the Savvy Authors Boot Camp challenge. It took about two months to get most of it done, then I added a bit more to it. Love Remembers When was done during Jano. I didn't have the usual drag of week 2 trying to slow me down, which was really great. In fact, it was the last week that dragged its heels. But I got her. I had to write the ending first, since it wouldn't quit trying to write itself. Then there was the go back and fill in the rest of the story part.

All in all, I'm happy to have it finished. I have another idea for the third book. I'm not planning to jump into it any time soon though. I have 3 box sets I'm writing stories for this year, so I definitely want to work on those, and I have another paranormal western I really need to get cracking on.

But yay for getting another historical romance finished and yay for a little break before jumping into anything else.
