It's March -- Think SPRING!


Robin on a fence       Wow, can you believe that it's March already? The first two months of this year have just flown by. Of course, I've been so busy working on my 6th OUTLAW HEARTS story, titled BLAZE OF GLORY. that I hardly know what day it is, let alone which month! The first draft is finished now, though, and now I'm working on some edits. You are going to love this story. I love this story! I can't even put it down myself!

       Jake is back in full “Jake” mode, ready to protect and defend. But times are changing, and Jake has trouble changing with them and adjusting to new laws. You know Jake. He has his own ideas about justice, but those ideas could land him in prison, and he has to learn how to cope . . . until something happens that blows away all his determination and his promises to his family to be a “good boy.” That “bad boy” deep inside is hard to tame, so get ready for adventure, romance, and a wild shootout that brings Jake to a really climactic moment in his life and taxes his family’s love and patience.The pub date isn’t set yet, but I am hoping for late September of this year -- I hope to have a cover to show you in a month or so. I love the basic draft of the cover. It’s very “Jake” and really fits the title, BLAZE OF GLORY!

       PLEASE don't be afraid to read BLAZE OF GLORY just because you are afraid that Jake might die in the end! Trust me that whatever happens, I always aim for a satisfying, memorable ending that won't disappoint my readers.

Cover, Arizona BrideCover, ARIZONA ECSTACY       Meantime, this spring will bring reissues of ARIZONA BRIDE and ARIZONA ECSTASY. I just finished the proof of Amazon’s conversion of ARIZONA BRIDE, and oh, my, I had forgotten what a good story it is. AB was published way back in 1986, so I hadn’t read the story in a long, long time. What a beautiful love story! I cried several times, even though I wrote the book! Your heart aches for the heroine, beautiful, young southern belle Shannon Fitzgerald – and for the brave and handsome soldier (Bryce Edwards – stationed in Arizona) she is to marry – and also for the handsome Apache man, Saguaro, who saves Shannon from a terrible event on her way west. Fate (you have to read the book) finds Shannon in love with two men – a woman torn between two worlds – a woman who has to make the most difficult choice of her life – one that will definitely bring you to tears. You, too, will fall in love with BOTH heroes in this unforgettable love story! I haven’t proofread the sequel yet (ARIZONA ECSTASY), but it is about Shannon’s half-breed son, Chaco. Watch my web site and Facebook Author and Street Team pages to learn the publication dates for these Amazon reissues. Right now I hope for April and June of this year.

       I am so overwhelmed with all of your enthusiastic responses to my HIGH LONESOME series books! I have gotten some great reviews, and many of you have told me that you are not only enjoying these books yourself, but have also been buying them as gifts for friends and family! One of my readers told me that after she enjoyed JOURNEY TO HIGH LONESOME, she gave it to her husband to read, also! I hope eventually to write more books in this series, each a single title with new hero and heroine and all with "cameos" from characters from other of my books who just happened to be in the same place at the same time.

       In light of all of the rapid changes we are seeing right now in our country and our world, I want to assure you that the “Bittner” voice and style will NOT change. I will always write about other cultures with truth and honor based on deep research, showing inclusiveness and diversity. Most of all, I will always aim for a great, lasting love story that will live in your minds and hearts for many weeks, months, even years after you have finished a Rosanne Bittner book!

        If you are new to my writing -- or even if you want to replace old favorites -- please see my Books in Print page for a complete list of all my books, with most recent covers, publication histories, and ordering links. Eventually, I want to have all of my backlist available for both new readers and long-time fans who have reread the original print versions so many times that the pages are worn out! If you prefer the convenience of e-books, check out my E-books List, where you will find ordering links for electronic versions of my books in several different e-book formats.

       Brand new Bittner titles are distributed through But locally in Southwest Lower Michigan -- my books are available at Hardings Market and Linda's Antiques in Coloma and Back On the Rack in Watervliet! You'll find my new books there, as well as an assortment of my older titles. I am excited to have such great outlets for my work right here in and near my own hometown. (Plus, Email mefor a personalized autograph.) You can also check with your local library or book store and ask them to order any of my books you’d like to read.

Rosanne and faithful reader Chet Cripe       And if you want a print book personalized for yourself or before you “gift” it, just e-mail me privately at for mailing information, and I will pay the postage to send the signed books back to you! Or, if you prefer, I can autograph a label for you to stick into your book.

       I'm hearing from more and more men who enjoy my books, like Chester "Chet" Cripe, my friend and a faithful long-time reader. Chet was a member of the 45th Division of the Army Infantry and was Sergeant of the 4th Platoon. He served on Heartbreak Ridge, Sandbag Castle and Christmas Hill. The Outlaw Hearts series in particular are packed with action, western history, and solid family values as well as heart- felt romance. Yes, "real" men really DO enjoy reading my books -- and if you don't believe it, ask this Korean War Veteran!

       Many thanks for your continuing e-mails and notes. YOU keep me going back to the computer to write more books. Many of you tell me that reading my books got you through something physically or emotionally traumatic -- well, WRITING those books does the same thing for me! Keep reading, and I will keep writing!


Rosanne with her replica Colt .45

A Colt .45, much like the gun my heroes use - and my own .30-.30 rifle. The Colt is surprisingly heavy and requires a strong hand and arm to draw, cock and fire in one swift movement. That would take a LOT of practice!
