Writing Plans for 2022


Among the things I loved about starting a new year are the endless possibilities in that await in the months ahead. There are so many exciting opportunities, and I’m excited about the books I plan to write this year.

Of course, plans to sometimes go awry. Life takes unexpected turns.

But if all goes well, here’s what I’m planning to write this year:

The Snowman’s Sweetheart (coming January 27!) – a sweet wintery romance set in the fictional town of Pinehill. It’s not all that far from Faraday for those of you who loved the Friendly Beasts of Faraday series. It’s the first book in the Winter Wishes series.

A train story – (I’m part of a group writing stories connected to a train, so I can’t say much about it yet, but be watching for the release in April)

The Summer Creek Series will get an addition this year, most likely in June. I think it’s time to share Dani’s story.

If you read Sadie, and are anxious to find out more about Molly and Friday, I hope to release their story in August.

If you’re a fan of the Rodeo Romance series, get ready to saddle up for more contemporary western fun with Savoring Christmas. If you remember a hunky farrier, he’ll be getting his own story. If all goes well, it will release in October.

I really and truly wanted to release a new book in the Hardman Holidays series in 2021, but it was either rush to finish the book and skimp on time with my family during the holidays, or postpone it and write a better book. So that’s what I chose to do. I think we’ll all be glad I waited to release The Christmas Kiss.

And there may be another holiday surprise or two!

I am so grateful for my readers, and so thankful to do something I love so much.

Here’s to a year of fantastic books, wonderful stories, and fun adventures!

  5. Shanna, I found your books at a very hard sad time in my life. We had just lost our 30 year old daughter to an accident & had her husband & 2 little girls move in with us. You’re so right when you say life has unexpected turns. The first books of yours I read were the Hardman series & I think to this day my favorite still. You opened up a whole new world of joy for me & I don’t have the words to thank you for that! I’ve now read everything you’ve ever written & love each & everyone! Time has passed, our son in law is remarried & we love her & her two daughters as our own… The Lord has blessed us with many grandchildren & great grandchildren & life moves on. I miss my daughter every single day, but reading your books help me remember, the hope, joy & love we are given. Thank you more than words can say! God bless you & yours each day… lovingly, Bobbie Coursey

    1. Oh, my gracious, Bobbie! I’m so very sorry for the loss of your daughter. I can only imagine your grief and the ache in your heart at her passing. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
      I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed my books and so appreciate your readership. It makes my heart so happy to know my books have been a help to you!
      Wishing you joyous days in the coming year!
