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?
Except for the book cover, every picture on this page was taken by my husband, my friend Pam Williams, or me. We own the copyrights and can prove it. I hope you enjoyed this visit to a beautiful part of the United States of America.
