Girls Write Out
Tuesday, September 07, 2010
First off, today is Kristin's birthday!!! Happy birthday, friend!

I just got back from Nashville last night. We had the best time with the Thomas Nelson folks then spent the weekend with my fabulous editor, Ami McConnell and her kids. She has 4 little stair step girls then a big jump to Max who will be 15 this coming weekend.

At Thomas Nelson headquarters on Friday we discussed upcoming books and future direction. I just LOVE it when we get to have talks like this. The Lightkeeper's Bride ships to stores in two weeks, and it's the 2nd of my Mercy Falls historical series. So many of you who read my books have had a chance to read The Lightkeeper's Daughter, and I'd love to get your opinion here.

If you had your choice, would you prefer to get one historical one contemporary book a year from me? Or if I'm writing a historical series, would you rather see the books come out one after another with no contemporary in the middle of them? I love to dream about future things, but what fun would it be without your input? :-) So what do you think?

I like the idea of staying in the same series and genre. :)

I have to vote for historicals. They're less grissly. LOL But as long as no one loses their feet, I'm happy.

One historical to appease my more romantic side and - and one contemporary.

Really. I'd miss your contemporary and need to hear that voice along with the historical voice.
so don't listen to Kristin ;)

Laughing, Kristin! Only Abomination was a bit grisly. The other contemporaries have the same mix as the historicals now.

I'm glad to hear you say that, Jaime! I love writing contemp too. Pam, are you saying to finish out a series before doing something else?

I would do one historical, one contemporary, just because you have fans in both genres. The waiting time would be less to have the historical books in a row though.

I have vote with continue the series so I don't have to wait to find out what happens!

Either way, I love your writing, so as long as I have a book of yours to look forward to, I'm happy :)

How many in the series, five? You've completed 2, so do 2 more then a contemporary and finish with the finale. :) There. You have my plan for your life for your next two years. (Sigh. I wish someone would plan out my life for the next two years. LOL.)
