So where do we go from here?
Lucky me, I need to write a blog post after the October Birthday Seekerpalooza.
So, I decided to talk about an interesting experience, a first for me, with my writing.
I've got a book that's gone out of print and is being re-released in an omnibus version. I thought I'd talk about that because it's releasing today.
Lassoed in Texas Trilogy contains three full sized books.
Petticoat Ranch, Calico Canyon and Gingham Mountain.
Sophie's Daughters, is a sequel series to Petticoat Ranch. The first two of the series, Doctor in Petticoats and Wrangler in Petticoats, are already in bookstores, and I have had so, so, so, so, so many people (okay, three) ask me if they can get their hands on Petticoat Ranch.
Well, the answer is pretty much NO. It doesn't exist. I do see it used on Amazon occasionally. I looked the other day and it was listed for about $30. I'd be excited about that as in—it's become a rare collector's item—except I don't get any of the money, so ho hum. It is available in hard cover, but that costs about $30, too. Though of course it's wonderfully worth it.
But as far as it being in any bookstore anywhere or available to order new, nope. The book, NO LONGER EXISTS. It's like they sold EVERY COPY IN THE
As far as the process, I got a chance to go through the books and fix a few typos. Mostly it was just left as is, but there was one strange spell in Calico Canyon where Grace has a biscuit without an egg, then there is an egg, then BAM the egg is gone again. I got to fix that. There were a few other places like that, so that was good. If that egg thing bothered you, I highly recommend you go buy the omnibus edition.
I haven't gotten my hands on the book yet. I expect my author's copies any day. I will say this…Barbour Publishing is selling Lassoed in Texas for a very good price. About the same price as one full priced book, though they never are listed for the full price. But still, if you've been looking for even one of these books, it's not too hard on the wallet to buy this one.
