GREETINGS FROM THE GREAT AMERICAN WEST!
This is my favorite highway, I-70 through Colorado -- right up there in the clouds. As much as I love my home in southwest Michigan, I do look forward to my trips out west! I come here to relax and unwind, spend some time with my husband -- and refresh my "feel" of the land to lend reality to my books. I do some of my best writing on these "working vacations!" This trip, I am concentrating on rewriting the "backstory" of the main characters in my third Outlaw Trail book. It just didn't "feel" right the way I had originally written it, but I am really confident that the changes I am making will result in a much better book for you, my readers!
As I have previously mentioned, 2020 brings a new year, new projects, and some changes that mean brand new books will be available to my readers more often! January 10th saw the reissue of one of my older titles, TEXAS PASSIONS (originally published by Zebra in 1999), which is a sequel to TEXAS EMBRACE (originally published by Zebra in 1997 and reissued in November 2019). There probably won't be any more reissues in 2020, but look for some in 2021!
My reissues are published through Amazon Books and are available for Kindle and in print. I really like the new covers on these books, and I especially like the fact that they are printed in the same size as hard covers, making them much easier to read. Because of this, and because I have not been happy with the shorter stories, the quality of the print and the very thin pages of todays paperback books, I have decided to write just for Amazon from here on.
Although I appreciate everything my publisher, Sourcebooks, has done for me, and I really love my editor there, I am leaving them to publish my books myself through Amazon. In doing so, I will have much more freedom to write the big, saga-type stories I am known for. The best part is, I will be able to publish new titles much closer together! I write faster than my publisher is willing to publish my stories, and I know you, the reader, didnt like having to wait nearly a year between books. Now you wont have to!
Dont worry! I will still finish my Men of the Outlaw Trail series which began with November 2019's RIDE THE HIGH LONESOME. I've made some changes to titles: all of the books in the series will now have High Lonesome in the titles! So, as it stands right now, the second book in the series, LAWMAN IN THE HIGH LONESOME, will be out roughly around June and the third, JOURNEY TO HIGH LONESOME, should be available in October. Because I'm publishing these through Amazon, you can get BOTH books in 2020, whereas they were originally scheduled for late 2020 and mid-2021.
As many of you already know, each book in the "Men of the Outlaw Trail" series will be a single title with new hero and heroine, and each story will touch on other characters I've written about who "visited" the Outlaw Trail! (RIDE THE HIGH LONESOME features a cameo appearance by Jake Harkner from my Outlaw Hearts series; JOURNEY TO HIGH LONESOME, features an appearance by Moses Tucker from LAWLESS LOVE; LAWMAN IN THE HIGH LONESOME will have a brief appearance by Sage Lightfoot from PARADISE VALLEY.)
I am so excited to be able to have my books published in a more timely manner, and able to write more big books and family sagas. I will definitely be writing that fifth Outlaw Heartsbook about Jake and Miranda for spring of 2021, and will probably call it BLAZE OF GLORY. I'm also writing a Valentine novella for February 2021. Then, who knows? Maybe it'll be back to my first big contemporary story an Indian/White romance in true Bittner style! I have lived with this story and its characters since the 80s, believe it or not! So you have a lot to look forward to!
I assure you that the Bittner voice and style wont change. In that respect, I will always write about other cultures with truth and honor based on deep research, showing inclusiveness and diversity. Most of all, I 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!
I would like to repeat how thankful I am for all my readers -- and for those who give my books as gifts! You keep me going to the computer to write more books, and there are days when my writing sustains me through personal problems and aches and pains. My readers often mention how my books got them through something physically or emotionally traumatic for them, but WRITING those books does the same thing for me. Keep reading and I will keep writing!
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 Amazon.com 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 Wal-Mart, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. 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 meand we can get together for a personalized autograph.) You can also check with your local library or book store and ask them to order any of my books youd like to read.
I'm hearing from more and more men who enjoy my books, like Chester "Chet" Cripe, one of my faithful long-time readers. 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!
And if you want a print book personalized for yourself or before you gift it, just e-mail me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 still have several extra copies of some OLDER BOOKS that are no longer available -- including many of my Foreign Titles! Many of these books have been previously read, but some are brand-new. You can order these older titles, as well as my recently reissued books, directly from me and I will sign them for you -- or for a friend who loves a good read. Please Email me if you're looking for a specific book!
Many thanks for your continuing e-mails and notes. They have certainly brightened my inbox. So many of you are telling me which of my books you have read and loved, and why they are your favorites -- and are looking forward to reading my upcoming new books. I have been sharing many of your messages with all of my readers via my Guestbook page!
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!
