Top FIVE Book Questions & NEWS!!

Books and coffee

Hi Everyone!

So…here’s a fun fact: Friday will mark a year since I last published a book! Crazy, right?? DEFINITELY!! There were lots of reasons for the long break (mostly personal), but you guys know I’m not going to get into specifics. The good news is…I’m back!! The even better news? NEW BOOKS!! (*throws confetti*)

I’m going to tell you all about these new books soon, but first, I thought it would be fun to do a little book Q&A!! Even before my long break, you guys have been emailing/messaging me asking about certain books (which I love), and now that I finally have some news, I thought I would post the top five questions and answers for everyone here!!

And, I’ll reveal some release dates for you guys, too!! (WHOOP! WHOOP!!)

Ready? Okay! Here we go…

5. Will you ever write about the Locke Brothers/Maple Bear Falls?

For those of you who don’t know (!!), Jasper Locke appears in ETHAN (Blackbeary Creek, Book 1), and his three brothers, Marshall, Russell, and Calvin, are also mentioned. Jasper lives in Maple Bear Falls, and that series (along with two others) are planned spin-offs from Blackbeary Creek. When will they be written? I’m not exactly sure, but I know it won’t be in 2020…and it might not be in 2021, either. I have lots of stuff I want to write before I tackle all of those books, so for now, they are on hold indefinitely.

4. Are you going to write any more North Pole books?

This one is easy…YES!! The North Pole series will have two more books, and they will both be released in December!! For those who love Holiday/Christmas romance, don’t worry!! I have another Holiday series planned for next year!

3. Will you ever write more Bear Mountain Books? Will you ever write about the children?

Probably not. Bear Mountain is my favorite series, but I like that it’s complete, and I have no desire to write about the children. That doesn’t mean I never will (I never say never!), but I probably won’t. If I do write in that world again, it will most likely be with other bears/shifters.

2. What is Book 2 for The Enforcers Series? Why can’t I find/buy it? Where can I get it? Etc…

Book 2 for The Enforcers Series was a crossover Kindle World book called BEAR SENTRY. Kindle Worlds gave authors the opportunity to write in another author’s world, and it was a program run thru Amazon. The problem was, Amazon controlled the rights, and they only offered the books in the US. When Amazon closed the program, it created problems for many authors because many world owners didn’t want those books to be sold with their world elements in them—which meant lots of rewrites! You may remember this post, where I talked about it some, and said I wasn’t going to rewrite… Well, (and this is the good stuff!!)…I changed my mind!! (YAY!!)

Um, Ruby, what does that mean?

It means that I have rewritten Book 2!!! Not only that, I took my other Kindle World Book (WAKING THE BEAR), and rewrote that one, too!!!

AND I created my own series for these books…

AND I wrote three more books to go with them…

AND (!!) I will add three more books to this world next year!!

What? New books?? New Series??

YES!! My new Series, Emerald Haven, will start releasing in September!! Book 1, WAKING THE BEAR, will release on September 3, and Book 2, SAVING THE BEAR (formerly BEAR SENTRY) will release on September 10!!

Because both of these books were former Kindle Worlds books, all of the old world elements (which belonged to other authors) have been removed, and I have created my own world to tie them together. Book 1 has very minor changes, but Book 2’s changes are significant, so you’ll definitely want to read/reread it again!

(PS…SAVING THE BEAR will now be Book 2 in both The Enforcers Series, AND in my new series, Emerald Haven! Also, Emerald Haven will start with FIVE Books—Books 1 & 2 are the rerewrites, so you may have read them before, but Books 3-5 are Brand-New!!)

Phew…I know that’s a lot of info, but we still have one more question! It’s the number one asked question of all time, and I love that you guys love this family—these books—as much as I do…

1. Will you ever finish the Polar Bliss Series?

YES!! The Polar Bliss Series will be finished this year, with both Books 3 & 4 releasing in November!! Book 3 will release on November 8, and Book 4 will release on November 15!!!

YAY!!! (*throws more confetti*)

I KNOW this has been a long wait, but I love you all for sticking around!! (And if you’re new, then you’ve picked the right time to join this party!!) I’m so happy that I’m writing again, that I get to share all of these awesome books with you guys, and that you all love my heroes/heroines as much as I do!!

Thank you all for your continued support!! ❤

Hugs!!
Ruby

PS…I’ll be sharing the covers for Books 1 & 2 VERY soon!!

 

 

 

 

Get Ready…ZACH is Coming Soon!

WHOOP! WHOOP!!

Get ready, because ZACH is releasing April 1! (Yes, really! 😉 )

Want more good news? Perhaps something about GRAHAM?!!

Awesome!! GRAHAM will release the last week in April!!

The first quarter of 2017 didn’t go exactly the way I’d hoped, but it’s going, and new books are coming! After Blackbeary Creek, I’m going to finish The Enforcers, and then I’m going to complete Polar Bliss!

The final books in The Enforcers and Polar Bliss were originally scheduled differently, but this way makes more sense because after Polar Bliss, I’m moving into a three book series called The Bear’s Den! (These books will feature the ginger bears from BEARY OVERDUE and BEARY GUARDED: Hayden, Hayley and the twins, Holt and Holden!)

So, what does this all mean? It means look for The Enforcers (Books 4 & 5) to release in June/July, and Polar Bliss (Books 3 & 4) to release in August/September! Right now, The Bear’s Den is scheduled for October, but, as always, the entire schedule is subject to change! 😉

Go ahead and get excited (I am!)!!

PS…You’re going to love ZACH!! 😉

Updates: Vacation, New Bears & New Series!

Yes! You read that right! New Bears and New Series; but first a vacation! 🙂

I’ll be in Florida for the first two weeks of June, and then–because I know I’ll need the time to recover–I’m taking another week to do nothing at home! I plan to be “off the grid” during this time (no FaceBook, Twitter, Email, etc), but don’t worry…I’ll be back in July with a brand new series!!

BLACKBEARY CREEK is a brand-new, five book series, coming in July! The first book will release July 5, and the rest of the books will release (in order) every 3-4 weeks after that. Following BLACKBEARY CREEK, you can look forward to the last two books in the Polar Bliss series, one book in a new Kindle World (more info later!), and (finally!) the final two books in The Enforcers Series! Oh, and don’t forget a new North Pole Bear in December!

The exact order/release dates of these books isn’t finalized, but they will move us into next year, and then you can look forward to all the spin-off series I have planned! 🙂

See…Lots and lots of Bears to look forward to! 🙂

Have a Beary Happy June, and I’ll see you in July! ❤
