It’s called an omnibus 3-in-1 novel.
What that boils down to is BIG. it’s a BIG BOOK.
It’s three books re-packaged into one, called Lassoed in Texas Trilogy.
It’s got Petticoat Ranch, Calico Canyon and Gingham Mountain all in one books.
Now, the main reason this is important is, these books are all out of print. But most especially Petticoat Ranch is not only out of print, it’s also GONE.
I don’t know why exactly, but it’s impossible to find. No bookstores, no Amazon, not even me personally. I’ve got ONE copy left and I’m clinging to it.
I don’t know if every single book they printed has sold or if there was an unfortunate warehouse fire, but either way, Petticoat Ranch does not exist.
You can buy it in hard cover, large print, but it’s pretty expensive. It’s available used on Amazon for (best price) $31.64. Which is kind of exciting, like they’re valuable or something. Of course I DON’T GET ANY OF THE MONEY, so I’m not that excited.
And THIS matters because the series I’m writing right now, Sophie’s Daughters, is the little girls in Petticoat Ranch all grown up.
Doctor in Petticoats released in July. Wrangler in Petticoats came out this month and Sharpshooter in Petticoats is coming in January. And though they stand alone pretty well, I think you’re going to want to see where the girls came from. Their tough Texas rancher mother who raised them to be the strong women they are today. A doctor, a wrangler and a sharpshooter.
So, I’m excited that Barbour Publishing is getting all these books back into print. Gingham Mountain and Calico Canyon come into play in Sharpshooter in Petticoats, too, so you need those, but those you can still find at least online. It’s that pesky Petticoat Ranch that’s vanished.
And my publisher put a really good price on Lassoed in Texas Trilogy. About the same price as one full priced book, although on Amazon they’re never full priced. Still, it’s a good deal even if you’ve got some of the others.
