My latest reads to share with you are a fabulously funny and sexy romance with a disabled heroine, a painfully sweet romance with a bucket of laughs about how to really live a life in the face of death, and a steamy hot tale of internet dating and learning to trust again. These were such wonderful books and I can’t wait to share my thoughts about them with you.
Often when I write, I find it very difficult to find the right words to describe how a character is feeling, or how an environment should be described. I see it in my head and feel it in my body, but it’s like trying to find a word to describe it that doesn’t exist in the English language.
I read a lot about the phrase ‘writing to market’ in the author community. The idea is to identify a reader group, for example people who want sweet and clean Billionaire romances, or YA (young adult) urban fantasies, and then write books targeting those markets. It makes business sense - find the market and then supply them with the product they demand.
Evie had intended her writing to be serious romances, full of angst and subdued passions. Unfortunately it turned out that her writing was much more like her; unintentionally ridiculous, potty-mouthed, and a bit (at least in her head) steamy.
