Mea Culpa

(That means “My Bad” in Latin)

I said I’d have the next Ruth & Gron book out by the end of March…. I’m not going to. This is mostly because I foolishly set myself another writing project related to some friends’ birthdays which I had to complete by last weekend. I also just can’t keep to deadlines, it seems. So… my bad.

I’m finding this book harder to write. It’s the subject matter. I’m not very excited about it, but I think it’s something you guys are going to LOVE. I want to keep it a surprise until it’s published though. So who knows? Maybe end of April, maybe not. I had wanted to release a book every three months and I’m already behind. Terrible. It’ll have to be one every four instead.

As restitution for getting behind schedule, here’s my peace offering. Amazon have developed a function whereby you can buy kindle books as printed hard copies! I haven’t put any of mine up yet, but I think I will once this book is released. I’ll want to go through them all and fix all the typos though, eek. I’ll definitely let you guys know before I do that.

And what about a bundle? Do you think that’s a good idea? If I released the three (of four) Ruth & Gron books as one, for a lower price than it would cost to buy them separately? Or is that just annoying for the people who already own them? This upcoming book isn’t going to be the last in the series either so it wouldn’t be a complete collection…

I’m just tossing some ideas around. Let me know what you think. And sorry again for not having the book ready for when I said I would.

  1. Write at your own pace! I’d rather have one good book than a bunch of crappy ones.
    About the bundling…I wouldn’t worry about it. Paperbacks would be cool, though. Especially if I could get it signed by the author. 😉

  2. Dang it! I was excited about a new Ruth and Gron book coming out at the end of March. I’m not mad though. I can wait! Take your time! I think a bundle would be annoying to me. I already have all 3 books, and I’d want book 4 separately as well. I’d also want any others you write in this series separately. Maybe once you’ve written the whole series you could make a bundle.

  3. Thanks for the update. I’ve been checking back every few days or so.
    I’d say wait on the bundle until you have all your books in the series out. I hate buying a bundle and then buying two or three books separately outside of the bundle. I would wait and then when the series is finished make a bundle of all of them or of two sets of three if it’s a six book series or two sets of four if it’s an eight book series etc.
    Not sure what everyone else thinks. That’s just my opinion.
    Again thank you for the update, I can wait for a book a lot easier when the author is updating. I get so frustrated when the expected release comes and goes and the author never says anything. This just happened in another series I read and the book wasn’t released until 5 months after the projected date and the author was silent that whole time. So frustrating! So THANK YOU! I can wait another 5 months no problem I just like to know I will be waiting. 😋
    Can’t wait to read more about Ruth and Gron.

  4. I would love to have hard copies of your Ruth and Gron series. I guess I’m old fashioned, but I love to have an actual book in hand, plus I can skip to my favorite parts easier in a paper copy than on Kindle when I reread a favorite book. I would definitely buy hard copies of all your books as I love them all!!
