Glass Ball and Snake
Ghosts? they asked. Are they creepy? We don't like creepy...
No, no, I hastily assured them. I don't write creepy.
Shapeshifters? Were-people? Vampires? What's up with that? They wanted assurance.
I can relate. Really, I can. We all have our lines we draw in the sand. And when we cross that line, we leave our comfort zone. It's difficult to tell from the blurbs for books whether or not that line will be crossed. There's a lot of blurry edges these days.
I try to be scrupulously honest about my books. For instance, many in my family would find the sex in my books tooooo much. I'm up front about it. Don't read my books, I tell them. If you do read them, you have been warned.
Heh. In the same way, I explained my books to my new friends at the swimming pool. Here's what the books are about. Some you may not like.
Fortunately, for every single book, there's a reader somewhere just waiting to read it. Nay, even devour it! So, readers wanted. I write steamy, paranormal, fantasy romance. If that's your bag, have I got a story or two for you!
