Today's Freebie Guest Author is Paty Jager!

Wife, mother, grandmother, and the one who cleans pens and delivers the hay; Paty Jager has not only brought her husband of thirty years to maturity, but four children and over a hundred head of cattle and swine. She doesn't just write the western lifestyle, she lives it.

She began her writing career as a freelance reporter for local newspapers. She then found RWA (Romance Writers of America) and after eight years of attending many conferences, workshops, and being a finalist in eight contests, she broke into the publishing industry with a new e-book and POD publisher, The Wild Rose Press. She credits the RWA organization for helping her work on her craft to become a published author and giving her the contacts necessary to build her career.

Two western romance historical books were published in 2006. MARSHAL IN PETTICOATS and GAMBLING ON AN ANGEL. Her third romance novel, PERFECTLY GOOD NANNY, a contemporary western romance, won the 2008 Best Contemporary Romance EPPIE. The second book of the Halsey brothers series, OUTLAW IN PETTICOATS, was released November 2008. Her fourth historical western, and third book in the Halsey brother series, MINER IN PETTICOATS, is available in both e-book and print at The Wild Rose Press or at any bookstore or e-book outlet . To learn more about Paty, her books, and to enter her contest visit her website.

Today Paty is giving away a copy of MINER IN PETTICOATS to one lucky commenter. Scroll down to find out how to enter...

Blurb:
Shouldering the burdens of his family and the mining community, Ethan Halsey devotes himself to providing for his brothers’s growing families.

However, Aileen Miller, a widow, also looking out for her family’s interests, refuses to part with the land he needs. As they battle- one to push his dream to reality and the other to prove no man will hurt her again- their lives become enmeshed and their hearts collide.

To read an excerpt go Here.

Welcome, Paty!

Series- Why We Like Them
by Paty Jager

When I wrote the first book of the Halsey brother series, it started out as a one book deal- then along came Gil’s brothers- four of them. Even after they were added, only a small niggling said this could be a series, then the first book was released and everyone wanted to know when another brother would have a book and the series emerged!

I’ve had a long standing relationship with series books. I enjoy becoming a family member as I read the stories. I like rooting for everyone and wondering who the next book will be about. And I’ve found so do many other readers.

Readers like finding out more about the families, and in a sense, becoming part of the families as they read the stories. It’s amazing how deep some readers become engrossed in the character’s lives. But it is a rewarding thing for an author to have someone so excited about a next book- about the family. And that is what led me to the second book - Zeke’s book- and Ethan’s book, MINER IN PETTICOATS.

What started out as one idea, a young woman dressed like a boy made marshal by a corrupt mayor (MARSHAL IN PETTICOATS) has ended up a five book series, a Free Read at the Wild Rose Press readers loop, and I hope to start adding a Free Read each month to my website written in one of the secondary character’s POV.

The second book is about the heroine finding the truth about her father and the Halsey brother who not only helps her solve the mystery but heals her heart. The lives of the Halsey brothers have morphed into a family business the oldest brother is determined will flourish to provide for the growing family. The only thing that stands in his way is a widow with two children who is also building her family’s future.

To be entered into the drawing for MINER IN PETTICOATS, answer this question in the comment section:

How do you feel about series? Love 'em or hate 'em?

I love series, especially when secondary characters get their own books. And meeting them all again is like visiting old friends...

I love a series. So long as I can always get them all. Sometimes it is hard to find if they are a little older and then I am left trying to put the pieces together on my own.

Thanks!

I love series books! You get invested in the characters more by seeing them grow through numerous books. And it's nice to see what happens with characters after they get their HEA.

I absolutely love series, especially when previously introduced main characters continually interact throughout the rest of the series as secondary or cameo characters.

I like the way Eva said it, Paty. Series characters are like old friends with new problems and issues and gossip -- such fun.

I love series.
I love to revist charachters I've loved, and I love to people I've met in previous books get their own story. I've gotten so I read more and more series, and when there isn't a series connected to a book, I'm sad!!

Well it looks like everyone likes series books! LOL And every one had the same reasons. That's why I am enjoying writing this series. I can go back and visit with the brothers who have found wives and let the readers see how their lives are going.

In the first book two of the brothers struck a chord with me. Zeke and Ethan.They were the ones who had to have the next books. But the more I'm researching for the fifth book. Hank's story... the more excited I'm getting to tell his story and wrap up the series, though Darcy's brother may need to have a story written too.

Thanks you all for stopping by!

I love them and agree with what everyone else has said about series books. Although some authors will say each book in their series will stand alone, I have to read them in order and usually don't start reading a series UNTIL I have them all in my hot little hands.

I love series because you get to know the characters and secondary ones too and you want them to get their own HEA too.

I also like to catch up on the previous hero/heroines after they get their HEA.

Hey, Paty!

Sorry I didn't get to Eli's blog on the day you were guesting. I'll add my vote to those who love a series of books. Others have said it: it's like visiting old friends and sharing the journeys to their happy endings.
