My Writing Future
Okay, I have to say first and foremost I’m not writing another space opera for some time. I’m going to let the genre sit for a while and see how people like these books. In the mean time, I’ve gone back to fantasy and tried my hand at contemporary romance. I think I need a genre break, and it’s been so great to go back to my first genre; fantasy, and try something new at the same time; contemporary romance.
What my fantasy is about: I’m writing a dragon book about a princess, her bodyguard, and a minstrel. It’s about duty verses love, and the power of music- which is magical in this particular kingdom- verses strength and steel. There are all the usual fantasy trappings: dragons-which I call wyverns- ogres and trolls-which I call kobalds, underground missions, swords and sorcery, and even necromancers- which brings up the coolest thing in this book- medieval zombies. Yeah, I’m pretty excited.
What my contemporary romance is about: I just finished-meaning today as I write this- my first contemporary romance about a flutist in an orchestra who’s in love with her boss- the conductor. When I decided to write contemporary, I wanted to write something I knew a lot about; hence orchestras. This was the most fun I’ve ever had writing! I've submitted the proposal to Entangled Publishing's Bliss line, and I'm still waiting to hear back. *fingers crossed*
My advice to writers out there: try different genres. You never know which ones you’ll be good at!
When Eri's team lands, tribes of humans attack and Eri is saved by Striver, the descendant of a colonist and a pirate from Old Earth's colonization efforts in other parts of the galaxy. Striver helps Eri rescue her team and they are drawn to each other despite their different allegiances. While Striver battles with trusting Eri, Eri must decide whether to warn him and his people about the commander's intentions, or follow orders and complete her mission.
