Readers are loving LOVE'S SWEET REVENGE!
LOVE'S SWEET REVENGE is now available, and I'm so excited that everybody is loving it! The book was given 4.5 Stars and named a September Top Pick by RT Book Reviews, and their review states in part: Bittner writes powerful, beautiful, harsh and tender stories that take readers breaths away with their emotional depth. And, I'm thrilled to share that Publishers Weekly has given a truly wonderful review -- even mentioning that there will be a fourth book to look forward to! (Read both reviews here!)
Most of all, though, I am very very happy that my faithful readers are loving this book:
It's been a busy summer for me, and I can't believe fall has begun. The leaves are turning, frost is in the air, and it's pumpkin time! I have finished THE LAST OUTLAW, aka "Jake #4," and we are now waiting to see the new cover. VERY EXCITING opening to this story -- a bank robbery in Boulder, Colorado, and guess who's in town when it happens? Your hearts will break for Jake and the whole family. I can't believe what has happened to this incredible hero ... he's grown so much emotionally - but the "outlaw" in him once again surfaces in an event that will lead him back to his childhood for closure - and Randy fears he won't come back this time. It's all for a purpose, though: it leads to an amazing, uplifting, dramatic, beautiful ending to this series. I wanted the last book to be the BEST one, and I think I've done it! It's going to be a LONG WAIT for September 2017.
I'm currently working on a Christmas story for October 2017. Those of you who know my books also know that I am not designed to write short stories. I love to dig deeply into a big cast of characters, but you cant do that with a short story. This one will be 150 200 pages, and to me that is short! I decided that since readers will still be pleasantly floating in the romantic character of Jake Harkner when they finish THE LAST OUTLAW, I just had to make the Christmas story about Jake and his family kind of a last hurrah and farewell to characters my readers have lived with for the past four years and four books. It's a very sweet little sotry involving Jake's little granddaughter Sadie Mae and it's called A CHICK-A-DEE CHRISTMAS. (Click here to read more about my challenges writing this short story.)
More good news for local readers: my books are now available at Hardings Market in Coloma! You'll find all three books of the Outlaw Series, as well as an assortment of my older books. I am excited to have such a great outlet for my books right here in my own hometown, and with Christmas coming up, I'm sure you can find one of my books for everyone on your list!
For you movie buffs: when you go to any Moore Theater in Niles, Coloma, South Haven, Plainwell and Battle Creek, MI, between mid-August and the end of November, look for my ad on the big screen! For a sneak peek (or if you live out of the area), click here! (For a longer video featuring the Outlaw Hearts Series, please click here!)
I'm hearing from more and more men who enjoy my books -- pictured here is one of my faithful long-time readers, Chester "Chet" Cripe. 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. Yes, men really DO enjoy reading my books -- and if you don't believe it, ask this Korean War Veteran!
Still trying to find a good publishing "home" for my new Native American romance, EMBRACE THE WIND. Publishers tend to move slowly, and I'd like to see that book published sooner than Sourcebooks may be able to schedule it. I'll keep you posted on any progress!
In the meantime, my agent is putting out feelers for the contemporary Native American romance I want to write, and Diversion Books is very interested in my idea for writing sequels to some of my older titles. Many of my readers have told me they would love to know what happened to my characters from earlier stories! I also hope to sell a sequel to PARADISE VALLEY sometime down the road, but I can only write so fast, so just be patient. All these books will get written and published eventually. If I work with more than one publisher I can get more books out per year, so hang in there!
Speaking of the Diversion Books reissues -- as you know, in January through April of 2016, thirteen more of my older titles were reissued from Diversion Books with new covers. The e-book versions came out first, and later in the year (I hope!), Diversion will release the new print-on-demand versions. (Diversion has already reissued many of my other older titles. You can read more about these books on my Diversion Books page!) All my stories involve real American history. I thought you might be interested in seeing the original publisher and publication date, as well as the theme involved in each title. If you click on the cover or on the title, you can read more about each book. It just struck me that many of these books, which are still in demand today, are older than some of my readers! (By the way, you can read my thoughts on the reissue of so many of my books in e-reader format in my new article, What Goes Around, Comes Around -- The Beauty of a Backlist.)
Remember, I can now "Authorgraph" my e-books -- which means I can send you personalized digital inscriptions for any of my books offered in e-reader format! Click here for details and available e-books.You can include a message to me to receive a personalized inscription that you can view in your favorite reading apps and devices -- including a printable pdf that you can glue inside your printed book!
And if you want a print book autographed for yourself or before you gift it, just e-mail me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
I also have available THE TOUCH OF LOVE, a 46-page short story/ novella about Robert Kingsley, the half-Indian boy raised by Rising Eagle of my Mystic Indian trilogy, which was previously only available by download from Mightywords.com. In action, it falls between MYSTIC VISIONS and MYSTIC WARRIORS (Books 2 & 3).
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 Guestbookpage!
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!
