My stories usually run hot and steamy. However, my most recent work in progress is so sweet it’s like cotton candy melting on your tongue.
If you usually pick up a naughty night time read, would something on the sweeter side hold any appeal?
Authors are told to build their brands and focus on one genre. If you write suspense, stick to suspense. If you write cozy, stick with cozy. Paranormal, then stick to paranormal.
Should a romance writer step outside of the box and dip her pen into a softer more gentle pool?
Since I have no control over when my muse will visit, what she’ll whisper in my ear or how it will flow onto the page—should I take control and force it into the genre I’m known for?
Personally, if I love a writer’s voice, I’m interested in seeing everything they write. I might not buy every book, but something outside of my preferred preference zone wouldn’t be an automatic – No.
