You Ask, I Answer!

Q&AOver the last couple of days, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about my new novella, You’ll Be Mine, which is part of the Ask Me Why anthology that released yesterday. So I figured I’d take a few minutes to answer them for everyone!

The number one question has been:

Q: Will You’ll Be Mine be out on its own?
A: Yes! It’s set to release as a single novella for $2.99 on October 20. The preorder is coming in September.

Q: Will you write separate wedding novellas for all the Abbott siblings?
A: No, I’m not planning to do that. The other weddings will be featured within the various books. I expect Hunter and Megan’s wedding, for example, will come into play in Book 6, Ain’t She Sweet, which will feature CharleyAbbott. I felt Will and Cameron’s story required a little something extra, and I loved writing their wedding novella.

Q: Will Ask Me Why be available in audio?
A: I’m still waiting to hear about that. Will keep you posted.

Q: After reading the wedding novella, I’m intrigued by the potential story for Patrick Murphy. Do you plan to pursue that?
A: Yes! Without giving anything away for those who haven’t yet read the wedding novella, I’m hoping to write a novella that will continue the story begun for Patrick in You’ll Be Mine. Now a question for you: Did you like the little story for Patrick in You’ll Be Mine? One of my favorite parts of that novella is how he arrives in Butler. I was LOLing as I wrote that!

fred1Q: Fred. Oh Fred, how many ways do we love you?
A: I’ll let you guys answer that one! LOL

Q: How many more Green Mountain books are you planning to write?
A: I expect to do one for each of the Abbott siblings as well as their Coleman cousins–and there are eight of them. I also hope to write a prequel novella next year that will tell Lincoln and Molly’s story. Watch for more on that after the New Year.

Other questions about the novella or the Green Mountain Series that I haven’t answered? Feel free to post them in the comments! If you haven’t yet gotten the Ask Me Why anthology and want to read the wedding novella NOW, here are the purchase links:
