Take Me Please!

This has been a big week for me—personally and professionally. It’s special because we released Megan Crane’s Tempt Me, Cowboy ten years ago, which kicked off the 75th Copper Mountain Rodeo, launching Montana Born, and what would soon be Tule Publishing.

Montana Born was started with three of my closest author friends: Megan CraneCJ Carmichael, and Lilian Darcy. I thought it would be fun to write something together and after calling everyone, we booked flights and met in early May 2013 at CJ’s new cottage on Flathead Lake, to brainstorm our individual series and create some connecting threads in our new fictional town, Marietta.

While brainstorming outside on the deck of the cottage with the gorgeous views of the deep blue lake and the Mission Mountains, CJ suggested we come up with four linked stories that would help drive readers from one series to another, and within an hour or two, the rodeo was created, and Marietta was plotted out with a prominent place on the map for the rodeo and fair grounds.

Marietta has grown over the past ten years but it is still a place of my heart and important to readers. To celebrate the 10 year of anniversary of TuleMontana Born and Marietta, we brought the founding authors back together (with Sinclair subbing for Lilian since Lilian isn’t writing at this time) and created the 85th Copper Mountain Rodeo.

On Tuesday of this week, I kicked off the new series with Take Me Please, Cowboy.  Megan Crane’s rodeo story releases on Tuesday Sept 12th, followed by Sinclair’s on Sept 19th and CJ’s on the 26th.  A character we introduced ten years ago as the town gossip—Carol Bingley—gets her own book on Wednesday Sept 27th.  If you’ve wondered about Carol and why she is the way she is, now you can find out!

If you haven’t yet purchased Take Me Please, Cowboy, do order your copy soon.  Your support means so much to me—and all of Tule.  I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for your enthusiasm, encouragement, and love for all things bookish.

Thank you for being part of my world. It’s a much better place with you in it!

All my love,
