IWSG & Happily-Ever-After

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

It’s the first Wednesday and time for another IWSG posting. All IWSG blogger will be sharing their insecurities and encouraging others. Be sure to hop around to a few blogs you’ve never visited before!

February 7 optional question - What do you love about the genre you write in most often?

Most of my life, I’ve been writing romance. Even my stories that start out as action adventure tend to veer into romance. The thing I love about romance is that there’s always a happy-ever-after scenario and if not, there’s at least a happy-for-now ending. I enjoy bringing joy and happiness to my characters and that in a nutshell is why I continue to write tales about love.

On the IWSG front, the next big thing is the anthology that’s due for release on May 1, 2018.

Blurb: Can a dead child’s cross-stitch pendant find a missing nun? Is revenge possible in just 48 minutes? Can a killer be stopped before the rescuers are engulfed by a city ablaze? Who killed what the tide brought in? Can a soliloquizing gumshoe stay out of jail?

Exploring the facets of time, eleven authors delve into mysteries and crimes that linger in both dark corners and plain sight. Featuring the talents of Gwen Gardner, Rebecca M. Douglass, Tara Tyler, S. R. Betler, C.D. Gallant-King, Jemi Fraser, J. R. Ferguson, Yolanda Renée, C. Lee McKenzie, Christine Clemetson, and Mary Aalgaard.

Hand-picked by a panel of agents and authors, these eleven tales will take you on a thrilling ride into jeopardy and secrecy. Trail along, find the clues, and stay out of danger. Time is wasting…

  1. I definitely prefer stories with a happy ending!

  2. All of my fiction stories have romance to them. We are just suckers for it I suppose.

  3. I read all kinds of genres besides romance and I still like the protagonist to get some kind of happy ending. HEA is what I love about romance also.

    1. Susan, yes, that makes the book worth it for me.

  4. There's always a need for a good romance, so I'd say you chose well.

  5. YA and romance are my go-to genres to read and write, however I also like historical fiction and women's fiction.

    1. I also enjoy women's fiction, but don't read a lot of historical these days.

  6. It's nice to be able to bring happiness to people through words.

  7. I grew up reading tons of Mills & Boons... and Danielle Steele! Nothing wrong with HEA!


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you think.
