Great responses yesterday in regard to titles. I really enjoyed reading them, even though I didn’t respond to every one.
Wow, Lea’s cool widgit says it’s only 18 days until Sweet Restraint releases. I seriously love that count-down feature. Keeps me on my toes. If you haven’t entered Huge Sweet Restraint Contest click here.
I just finished a novel that has vampires and shapeshifters in it, which is a first for me. I tended to avoid the vampire thing as a writer because it’s been done so well and so often that I worried I wouldn’t have anything original to offer the genre. I ended up going back and doing lots of research into the myths as well as re-reading the original Dracula. I had forgotten that Dracula was the king of the wolves, essentially, and a shapeshifter to boot. Weird, to think there’s that Hollywood Dracula vs. The Wolf Man stuff, and that both creatures were often considered as the same in legend. Anyway, my heroes are what we would call vampires, but actually are a bit more complicated than the legends.
Question to comment on today for the chance to win your choice of either Maya Banks–Sweet Surrender or Janice Maynard’s–By Appointment Only: Does it turn you off when authors switch genres in their writing? Has it ever happened that you were disappointed with a genre switch, or does it just depend on the author?
