Freebies and Prequels!

I’m still loving this cover. There’s four paintings around here, one for each book so far.  Considering I have something to paint on the Santa Fe trail, the Pony Express, and the Orphan Train subject… I’m going to need more canvas.dfd51ab2-3820-4ce0-98e1-d1a15c2ca851

 

Unavoidable is one of those projects I found irresistible.  I always knew the story of how Samuel Granville convinced his brother Nicholas to come back home. This is a little snippet of a day in the life that begins a huge change in Nick’s life.  I love how the brothers interact and their sniping has a strong undercurrent of love.  The romance is at the very end, but is a doorway to another, longer book.

Where can you find this particular story? Just pick your favorite and it’s there!

Next Week: The latest information in Self Publishing as gleaned from a plethora of bloggers.  I have a lot of research to share but still need to write it all.

 

 

Center Stage on the Mic

Welcome to my professional blog.  Here will be the latest and greatest in what’s going on in my corner of the literary world.  WordPress is so different from Blogger, so expect there will be changes, enhancements, upgrades, and other fun things happening.

What do I have planned?  A lot, really.  Undeniable, the first book in my Oregon Trail series is already available for Kindle and paperback.  Amazon is the quick and easiest way to get it, while Createspace is a great avenue, too.  I’m still thinking about handing it over for Nook readers, since I don’t like them being left out of anything.  Actually, I don’t like leaving anyone out of anything.  I’m very inclusionary that way.

But, back to the plans.  The Oregon Trail series is a set of three books that are part of my bigger series of the American West.  I have plans to write novels about the Santa Fe trail, orphan trains, and the Pony Express, too.

I’m not sure if I have ADD or just a vast variety of interests.  I do know for sure I’d love to publish a few contemporary romances that are short and sweet.  While I like the right here, right now of them, I also have at least three science fiction novels planned, probably romantic if the story dictates.  There’s a lot on the appearances can be deceiving aspect I’d like to explore in them.

But wait!  There’s more!  I have novels planned with settings in eight other countries just for the armchair traveler.  The goal is to have eight books where when the reader looks up, they’re amazed to find themselves still in their home country.

Most advice to writers has been stick to one genre, build your brand, and readers will love you.  I’d like to think people can be more versatile than that.  Comment below on your own thoughts of reading more than one genre in fiction.  Love it, hate it, or don’t care?  Tell me, because I’m totally curious.
