First off, Happy New Year everyone!
Though I write all year, traditional publishers’ schedules are what drive the release of my books. As it happens, I won’t have a book out with either Harlequin or TULE in 2019. This could send panic through a writer, because how am I supposed to maintain reader interest without having new books for sale?

That’s where the term hybrid author comes in. Fortunately, I thought ahead and last year secured the return of my North American rights on a trilogy I’d written for Mills & Boon. That trilogy was never packaged, marketed or promoted as such, and sold accordingly. I am thrilled to have my rights back, and with plans to self-publish them, have now updated and expanded the three stories making them sweet romances but with all the conflict and emotional tension still in place. The only difference is closing the door on the most intimate moments. We all have imaginations, right?

May 2019 July 2019
For those outside the US, I was part of two anthologies in Great Britain in December 2018: London’s Calling (Hot Single Docs) with my book American Surgeon in London, and Wedding Bell Wishes featuring one of my Harlequin Special Edition stories, Her Perfect Proposal.
For readers in Europe and Australia, here is the list of my 2019 International books.
February: Italy – Dr. Tall, Dark…and Dangerous – aka Un Chirurgo Pericoloso
March: France – Forever a Father (Harlequin Special Edition book #1 of The Delaneys of Sandpiper Beach) aka Bien Plus Qu’un Baiser
March: Australia – Making the Surgeon Smile (Hot Single Docs Giving into Temptation)
April: France – Soldier, Handyman, Family Man (Harlequin Special Edition book #2 in Delaney family trilogy) aka Tout Contre Lui
April: Denmark – American Surgeon in London
May: Sweden – American Surgeon in London
I have my fingers crossed that France will also pick up the third Delaney brothers’ book, because it only makes sense to publish all three, right? So far I don’t see a date on the International schedule but that could change at any time.
I hope you’ll check out the self-published books by Lynne Marshall already at Amazon. Two of them are currently free there (until Saturday January 5th) One for the Road, and Too Close for Comfort. Check them out!
Until next time, make it a great one,
