That's what I write. And for those of you who are wondering what in the hell I'm babbling about, let me explain.
I have Contemporary, Time Travel, Paranormal, and Erotic Romance out. And that's all well and good. But I hate to list them all when people ask what I write. Because most authors stick with one subgenre. And I do to. To an extent.
I write Contemporary-as far as this time period. And then I give it a twist. Whether that be Vampires, shapeshifters, time travellers, or hot sex. I'm leaning more toward the paranormal now. But I have another time travel idea. It's those damn twisty contemporaries again. *grins*
I don't see myself sticking with only one subgenre. I like to expand my ideas and incorporate all kinds of things into my stories. I have book one in a detective series done. I wrote it for a friend who doesn't particularly care for romance. I've started a fantasy.
By the way...for me, there's a fine line between Paranormal and Fantasy. I'm sure it's more clearly defined for some. And here's my take on that. Paranormal has a lot of dark creatures in it. Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, etc. While Fantasy brings to mind Fairies and Pixies and whatnot. Thoughts?
And how far out do you like your characters to be? Trolls? Dwarves? Merpeople? I'm curious.
And what do you write? One subgenre? Or do you share the literary love?
