My Writing Plans for 2014

FreelyGiven-JScarbrough200x300I’ve already “plotted” my writing goals for 2014. I’ll be burning up the keyboard well into the summer months writing books that have 2014 release dates. So, what am I planning this year?

Early in the year (January or February, depending upon my editor and my husband formatter) I will self-publish Freely Given (Short Medieval Romances). This is a collection of short romances first written under the pen name Darby York. Poor old Darby retired (although I may make her a character in a book someday), and her stories are coming out under my name. I’ve also written a new short romance to go along with three already published ones. “The Novice” joins “The Troubadour,” “The Betrothed” and “The Duke” in this collection.

I have finished writing Brody, part of the Long Road Home series, with Maddie James. I’m waiting for edits. The four book series is due out in the summer. I have another book to write for the series called Mercer. This series is set on a Montana ranch and is about the siblings in one family.

Next on my list to write is one of the new books in the Return to Legend series. Mine is called Heart to Heart. My heroine is an animal communicator and the hero is an uptight businessman. It should be great fun to write!

My final contracted book for 2014 is Kentucky Blue Bloods, book eight of my Bluegrass Reunion series. I can’t wait to start it.

No time! I have no time! ARGH!

I have five RITA books to read before March too. My life is jam-packed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What about you? Have you set your goals for 2014?



  1. Hi Jan. A great list! You are always so together on your goals and to-do lists. I’m proud to be authoring a couple of books in the Montana and Legend series with you! Speaking of, I need to get busy…. Happy New Year!

  2. Maddie, you are the cause of some of my writing goals — just sayin’.
