Accomplishments over the Summer
This past summer has been a busy one for me. I began a new project in the spring--an historical romance series entitled the "Unconventional Series" because the romances are unusual. The first is the story of widower (Brant Samson) who advertises for a mail order bride. The second is his son's romance with a heartbroken woman. The third is his daughter's love for a reclusive artist who tragically lost his right arm in a carriage accident.
After completing the third book, I put the stories into a collection. I have now done this with two other series (Romance on the Ranch and Shapeling Trilogy). This seems to work well and I will probably follow this same pattern for future series.
As for my next project, I have an ongoing sci-fi fantasy entitled, The Ordinaries, that I work on intermittently. I am also considering my next major project. I truly enjoy writing western romance so I may continue with the descendants of the Samson family from the Unconventional Series. It would be fun writing a contemporary romance about them. Decisions...decisions.

That Unconventional Romance series sounds really interesting! Was it as good as its hook?

Well I would hope! Oh my goodness, blond moment! That's why I should save networking for an evening activity. Anyway, you know you have me hooked with that premise - Happy to be following!

I love blond moments...maybe that's why I color my hair blond. Keeps life interesting. Thanks for your comment and following. The name for the series popped into my mind while I was listening to the hero in the second book tell me his story (Is hearing your characters talk to you considered a blonde moment? Yeah, I think so.) Anyway, that's how the series title came into being.
