I’m aware this never goes very well, but now that When Tis Done is over, I need to decide what to share next. I’ve got a fourth book in the Miracle, Mississippi series, but it’s only 38 pages long, and I very much doubt I’ll finish it anytime soon. That being said, I’ve got a few things for you to choose from. I really do want your opinions, because why post something you don’t want to read?
I have a couple of (slightly) more traditional fantasies – though when do you get traditional and normal from me, hm? When hell freezes over, is when.
Alton & Velda is set in a more Medieval world. Alton is a Wood Sprite, and Velda is a River Nymph. They travel the world, seeking a place to call home. On their journey, they meet Astrid and Revanth—a princess and a man cursed to be a horse. They set out together to find the witch who cursed him, and set him free. Sounds pretty straight forward—it’s not. That is choice 1.
Raven Willoughby: Origin. If you’ve read One Night in Daytona Beach, the name Raven Willoughby should be familiar. That is the hybrid vampire character that Draven plays on TV. I decided to flesh out the character and tell his story. No spoilers, but this is my original zombie(ish) tale. You’ll have to choose this if you want to know more. (Just so you know, my zombies don’t eat brains.) This is choice 2.
From here, I’m a little flummoxed. You see, I have a wealth of riches to share, and can’t make up my mind.
Do you want a romantic suspense set in the mountains of Kentucky in 1939? If so, pick Poplar Mountain. No sex, only a little cursing, lots of action. Choice 3.
Or would you prefer something darker, like my NaNoWriMo novel from last year, Sidetracked? It’s murder, without the romance. Not my usual fair. Choice 4.
I also have several romances to choose from. Like my other books, these aren’t normal romances in any sense of the word. My couples get along, don’t have huge arguments, and hate each other for ¾ of the book. Not that they don’t disagree and have misunderstandings, they communicate and work it out. If you want something like that, I’ve got two to choose from. (I haven’t got covers for these yet.)
Blacksmith’s Heart is set at a dude ranch in New Mexico. Girl meets cowboy and falls in love. It’s an exciting story, even if they aren’t hunting a bad guy, and it’s got some juicy love scenes (which I will have to tone down for posting – but they are still fun.) Choice 5.
Game Junkies is love—gamer/ geek style. The young couple have known one another a long time, been friends for years, but finally realize that they have more feelings than mere friendship. It has some exciting moments (not just in the bedroom) and there are a couple bad guys who get their comeuppance. (a tube of glue comes into play) This is Choice 6.
I’d say that these were the only choices, but I had a bunch more on my list—29 to be exact. They’re all good stories, so you see my dilemma? I want to find something which will entertain, that many people can enjoy. Like I said, why post something that no one wants to read. Please put your choice in the comments. You may order by number, like they do at the fast food restaurants.
So, do you want fantasy, romance, or romantic suspense? You decide, and tell me, or I’m going to have to pull a rabbit out of my hat. I haven’t got a clue.
