Hi, again. This is Louise M. Gouge, and I'm here to tell you about one of my favorite places in the world.
Starting a new book series can be very exciting for a writer. I’m especially happy to be writing my next series because it takes place in a beautiful part of the United States where I haven’t lived for almost thirty-four years: the San Luis Valley of Colorado. I’d been wanting to set a book series there for a long time, and now I finally have a chance to do so. San Luis Valley Brides will be published by Harlequin's Love Inspired Historical line beginning in June 2014. Of course, I have to make these stories westerns, a genre I’ve always wanted to write. But what’s so special about this high mountain valley that sprawls across central-southern Colorado between the Sangre de Cristo and San Juan Mountain ranges?
