I think I’ve figured out the pre-order thing. The second in my “Russian Love” series, titled Russian Gold, is available for pre-order and will officially go live on October 31, as promised. This short novel (around 53,000 words) is priced at $1.99 for the Kindle version.

I almost didn’t make that self-imposed deadline.

I’ve been busy, folks, really busy. Then my supervisor for the part-time quality assurance (QA) job I hold took a well-deserved, 2-week vacation. So pretty much everything “QA” fell on my shoulders. I muddled through with the help of co-workers who graciously endured my uncertainty, but let’s just say that my supervisor is forthwith and hereby banned forever from going on another vacation.

During this time, a client in Miami contacted me with a last-minute editing job. It’s always last-minute for this client. So, I accommodated the additional work and put in some very long long hours. Without getting into details, let’s just say that 1) I can edit in Adobe Acrobat, and 2) I loathe editing in Adobe Acrobat.

Needless to say, the combination of paying gigs and chasing down more work pretty much eliminated any time to devote to my own projects. But I scrounged out some time this past week and finally–finally!–finished revising and formatting the book.

I very much hope that those people who liked Russian Lullaby (Vitaly and Giancarla’s story) will also like Russian Gold (Pyotr and Cecily’s story) and even tell their friends about it. I really hope this book does as well as the first book. I will be ecstatic if it does better.

Like all my books, Russian Gold is available only on Amazon. It is only available as a digital download, simply because the cost of purchasing a printed version is prohibitive.

For those who care, the third book in the series will be Russian Dawn and focus on Latasha and Iosif. After that book is released–March 31, 2017, is the goal–I’ll combine all three volumes into a “boxed set” which will be made available in print. At least, that’s the plan.

As for now, I’ve got to get cracking on a fantasy romance. I’m 75,000 words into it and there’s a good bit left to go if I’m going to get it out the door by December 31.
