The cover for THE ARRANGEMENT 11 by H.M. Ward! You guys asked for a cover with a ring on it, so here ya go!
This title will be released before the end of the moth, the weekend of Oct 27th. I’ll post the links as soon as it’s been uploaded. Paperback will appear ASAP. I know there are a lot of paperback readers and I don’t want to keep you guys waiting, but it takes a little bit longer.
11 is NOT the final volume. People are asking for an engagement, a wedding, and baby Ferro. Can you imagine? Sean as a daddy. More info on serials vs novels is over here. Have an awesome weekend!
I thought I’d take a second to let you guys know how I go about writing my books.
The key thing is: There are always several books in the pipeline at once. I’ll work on something for a while and put it aside when it’s not ‘speaking to me’ anymore. Why do I do this? So I can wait until inspiration strikes and then pick it up again.
Writing this way keeps things rolling along, avoids writer’s block, and periodically there will be a succession of rapid releases where three to four titles get published in a few weeks. You guys probably noticed that. It happened recently when Trystan Scott, Stripped, and The Arrangement all came out back to back. In the span of 4 weeks, there were 3 new titles. It took longer than that to write them, and the only reason I was able to release books that quickly was because I was working on more than one title at a time.
I’d just like to take a second and point out how insane it is to release books that fast. Traditionally, books that are released quickly come out every 6 months, with a typical release date of a year being more the norm. Hardly anyone releases books on a weekly schedule, but I do. On average, a new H.M. Ward title comes out every 2.5 weeks. If I wrote one title at a time, there’s no way that would happen, and you’d actually get books slower because wrestling with a book that doesn’t want to be written is like pulling teeth from a camel’s butt. It’s seriously messed up.
Once in a while, a few very excited fans will tell me to just write one thing at a time thinking that’s what works best, but the truth is that different things work better for different writers. This is what works for me, so the next time you see my upcoming releases, you can know those titles are coming pretty quick.
What are you working on now? SECRETS & LIES, THE PROPOSITION, DIVERGENT, THE ARRANGEMENT, plus some other stuff that has no title yet.
What did you just finish? A LITTLE CHRISTMAS ROMANCE (This year’s Holiday Novella)
What are you working on next? THE ARRANGEMENT 11
What’s the weirdest sentence you’ve written this week? Uh, that thing about the camel’s butt takes the cake.
Where can fans offer their ideas for your books? The facebook page. Right now I’m taking names for the heroine in A LITTLE CHRISTMAS ROMANCE.
Which book comes out next? Either ARRANGEMENT 11 or THE PROPOSITION. I haven’t decided yet. Then at the end of the month A LITTLE CHRISTMAS ROMANCE will be released.
Okay peeps! That’s all for now! Feel free to stop by the facebook page and say hi.
Here’s something to make your Friday absolutely Ferrolicious! The next bad boy in the Ferro family has his own serials starting in a couple of weeks. You saw a glimpse of Bryan Ferro in STRIPPED. Arrogant, sexy, and powerful, Bryan Ferro is always at the center of trouble.
These will be serials. If you love THE ARRANGEMENT, you’ll love these. Not sure how many volumes there will be at this point. I’m letting it develop organically. I love that about Sean and Avery. There are so many books, and they’ve been through so much, that it feels like they’re real–like I know them. It’s because of the story format. Serials are great for people who like short reads and want something to read between novels.
Speaking of which, the next three major novel titles have been announced. BROKEN PROMISES (Trystan Scott), STRIPPED 2 (Jon Ferro), and SECRETS & LIES (Ferro) are novels that will take us into early 2014.
More hotness coming your way. Keep an eye out for teasers and more fun Ferro stuff. And if you haven’t done it already, sing the petition to get a Ferro movie or TV show.

No, this isn’t the final book in the series. If you have no idea what a serial is or if you’ll like it, please check out this post before jumping in. When will 11 come out? Soon! These are released about every 4 weeks.
Someone asked if my novels go on forever too. No, they don’t. Each novel series has 2 books. That’s it. The rest of the serials are complete at 5 books each (SECRETS and TRYSTAN SCOTT). THE ARRANGEMENT serials tangle in and out of the Ferro family novels. Each series is stand alone, meaning you don’t have to read the others to know what’s going on.
Thank you so much for all the emails, messages, and posts about continuing this series. For those of you that love Sean and Avery, another serial THE PROPOSITION will begin this fall and features Bryan Ferro. I can’t wait to share it with you!
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! STRIPPED made the USA Today bestsellers list at #17!
I won’t post a bazillion happy faces, but it’s still super awesome to release a book and have it hit a list. Thank you so much to all the readers who ran out and bought a copy of Jon Ferro’s story!!!
STRIPPED has the best review rating out of anything I’ve written so far – it’s 4.7 stars from over 300 reviews! I did some different things with this book and wondered what you guys would think. I’m so glad I didn’t suck it up! Wahoo! High fives all around!
