Big news today at Writing in the Buff!

Love to Believe, the second book in the Fireflies series, is scheduled for release on January 30, 2016. *happy dancing* If you’d like to read an excerpt, click HERE.

While that means I’ll be up to my eyeballs in galleys and edits through the Christmas holiday, it also means that Sean and Rebecca’s story will finally be shared.

Of the three novels in the series, Love to Believe was the most difficult to birth, so I’m beyond excited to see it in print and hope readers love these two characters and their romantic tale as much as I do. Where Love Built to Last was about letting go of the past in order to embrace the future, Love to Believe is about two people who must learn to trust—not only in each other, but in themselves.

And isn’t that a gorgeous cover? I know you’ve already seen it, but looking at it never gets old. Thanks again to Melissa Stevens at The Illustrated Author for knocking it out of the park a second time. I can’t wait to see the cover for book three.

Speaking of book three, for those of you waiting for Brenna and Dante’s story, be advised that Love to Win is tentatively scheduled for a May release. *more happy dancing*

Please check back here over the next weeks, because there will be more news, including pre-order links and multiple contests and giveaways to celebrate the launch of Love to Believe.

In other news, Ricard Writing & Editing (a division of Ricard Writing, LLC—my accountant told me I have to say that) will be underway this week. Thank you to the authors who provided testimonials for the site. I am humbled and most appreciative. The Ricard Writing & Editing website should be up in a day or two. I’ll provide more details when we meet again for Observations from the Tub. In the meantime, thanks for visiting, and I hope you have an awesome slide toward the weekend!


P.S.  If you have worked with me, either with critiques or edits of your work, and feel inclined to provide a few kind words, I’ll be grateful and happy to add your voice to my editorial website. Should you opt in, your testimonial will be on the home page of the new site in a slideshow rotation with the others. It will include your name, the genre in which you write, and a list of your books or pertinent publications.

      A curse and a blessing, as they say, Claudia. A blessing, because I can’t think of a better way to begin the year than with a book release! A curse, because the work of reviewing galleys, editing, minor revisions, etc. is massive, and the holidays are already so busy. But I’m not complaining, not at all. For an author, these are GREAT problems to have!

    Oooooh nooooo! (said like Mr. Bill from SNL) Now I’m going to have to read ANOTHER romance novel. Ha! Like I mind at all. Actually, I cannot wait.

    You are a miracle worker, Lisa. You have lured the frothing-at-the-mouth-when-romance-novels-come-within-1000-feet-of-her Sioux to read one–and soon two–romance novels.

    The end of January, huh? I guess I can wait til then…

      It is not lost on me that your reading-of-romance has a lot to do with the fact that you’re my friend and willing to support my efforts, even if it means sucking it up for a genre you dislike. lol Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you? 🙂

      Working on the edits now and the galley in a few weeks. I’ll be up to my eyeballs in Love to Believe the next few weeks! I’m excited for the release, though. Just found out Love to Win has a scheduled release date of July 30th. 🙂 2016 is already a good year.
