I just sent my editor the first story in a new paranormal romantic suspense series. At just over 105k words, it has a complex plot, intense characters, and dark themes. It kicked my butt, yet I know I’m not done with it. It will continue to be tweaked and improved through the revision process. Meanwhile, I have to get going on Book 2.
One thing that’s getting in my way?
A completely different story. A humorous and sexy contemporary romance I’m itching to write.
Interestingly, although I’m normally a romantic suspense or paranormal reader, I’m really into reading contemporary romances right now, too.
And when it comes to TV, I’m enjoying lighter stuff. Big Bang Theory. Cupcake Wars and Chopped.
I think it’s my mind’s way of trying to find balance again.
How about you? Do you read or write the same kind of books, one after another, or do you switch things up?
Comment for a chance to win my upcoming release, Shades of Passion, Book 3 in the Special Investigations Group series.
