The books on my website are now pretty much sorted, but I’m putting off promotion because I want to go over them again with a fine-tooth comb and get them perfected for audiences. It’s okay for them to not be ready yet, since they were already published years ago without being perfect.
I’ve got mostly general adult fiction and Palladia is YA. YA is one of the most specialized genres, actually, and YA is more a matter of tone than content (unless the content is inappropriate for kids altogether, in which case the book is more for an adult pretending to read YA than for any kind of actual young reader.) YA books just tend to have a tone, whereas a book for kids doesn’t even if it uses the same ages, or older ages. So I think Palladia is quite distinctive from my other books.
I’ve noticed that almost all the plots I’m using have a mystery angle. I hadn’t been aware of that before, but recently I’ve been paying a lot of close, analytical attention to my surroundings—to details, shades of meaning, hints, possible deductions, and so forth. I realized I was suddenly thinking like a mystery author. I then noticed a particular area of my stories that I’d taken for granted before. So, coming up I’ll be doing an exploration of my books from the angle of finding a mystery in them.
And there will be more updates.
7 books published and 3 more on the way. Farmer's daughter, Star Wars fan, loves to read rather than talk about reading. Always has time to finish her WIP.
