To Brand or Not to Brand
I've written a little bit of everything. My debut novel, Queen of Hearts, was a WWII romantic suspense. My second, Killing Time, was a contemporary romantic suspense. Mistaken Identity, this month's release, is a young adult romance. In October, a contemporary romance, This Time for Keeps, will release. When I sit down at the keyboard, I write whatever I'm in the mood to write. There's a certain sense of freedom in that and in knowing that I don't need to produce a certain number of novels to pay the bills.
Someone once asked me if I'd want to write full-time and my reply was that I wouldn’t. I'm lucky enough to have a day job that I love that pays the bills. Why would I want to worry about where the next plot is coming from or even the next royalty check? And sales numbers? I do everything I can to promote and then I don't worry about it anymore. I write for the sheer joy of placing words on the page, which is why I like to write what I want when I want. If I have to write something, that takes all the fun out of it. I'm loving writing as a hobby and wouldn't change a thing. It's the most fun I've ever had. After all, isn't that what a hobby should be?
