Some Assembly Required.

Lately I’ve been thinking I should post an explanation, or rather  a breakdown, of my books according to genre and relation, or interrelation, i.e., series.

Right off the bat you should know I’m not ‘branded‘, as in I don’t write in one specific genre.  Which is not a good thing for an author, or so I’ve been told.  Branded authors sell better.

Not being branded is fine for me.  It’s like this, when you are as ADD-ish as I am, easily bored and have an interest in all kinds of literature… I mean, what else am I supposed to do?  I like my stories to come in all shapes and sizes so I write Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Paranormal Romance and SFR or Science Fiction Romance- all with some overlap.  And I throw in a few short stories, some of which have nothing at all to do with Romance.

I plan to expand into plain old Science Fiction/Fantasy and Lit Fic.  Because that’s where I began.  All things eventually return to their roots, at least that’s what I believe.

(Oh, by the way – my dad is doing much better.  He’s turned a corner.  Thank you god, gods, fates, doctors… everyone.  I’m feeling optimistic for the first time in a month, and more important, so is he.)

1.  Contemporary Romance:

Beauty and the Feast – which is also a bit of a Romantic Comedy and definitely erotic.

Pushing Her Boundaries – another Contemp that is weighted pretty heavily toward erotica.

Come Back to Me – which overlaps into the category of Romantic Suspense in addition to Women’s Fiction and Coming of Age.

Anytime Darlin’ – another Contemporary which also fits into the category of Romantic Suspense.

My Everything – ditto!  Contemp and Romantic Suspense with a Special Forces theme.

2.  Paranormal Romance:  A progression of the dead, ghosts and heavenly hosts~ all three can also be considered Contemporary Romance and works of Romantic Suspense.

Incorporeal, Book One, The Soul Series.  

In the Flesh, Book Two, The Soul Series.

Stay, Book Three, The Soul Series.

The Soul Series Special Edition – contains all three of the above books.

3.  Science Fiction/Fantasy Romance (SFR):

Captured – Writing this book was fun.  Tops my list of writing experiences.  I will eventually revisit the world of Mari and Ekkatt.

One Four All – my foray into the world of Menage – had to make it sci fi in order to stop giggling.

Daughters of Perserphone, Book One, Exile.

Daughters of Persephone, Book Two, Return.

Coming soon -

Daughters of Persephone, Book Three, Reborn.

Daughters of Persephone, Book Four, The Red Demon.

I’ll probably release an anthology containing all four books as well.  The Daughters series began as a self-challenge and ended as a very satisfying Space Opera.

Oh yes, almost forgot – I have a book of poetry out:

Poems of Love and Hate.  I’m a big fan of poetry.

4.  Shorties:

Is It Spicy?  (Non-Romance)

You Might Just Get It.

Liz and Me.

The Artist.

So there you have it.  Can’t wait to get to the next book – Kerosene!

    Julia, you need to add this entire book list with the sub-category headings and links as an extra page on this website. REALLY IMPORTANT! You have a huge book list, covering many different genres. Tell your web design person to add this page!

    I have this little philosophy. Do what you do best at today. That might not be the same thing I was best at yesterday. I might be best at something else tomorrow.

    I see no value in writers doing the same thing over and over again, if the only reason they are doing so is because it is comfortable and/or they are afraid to try something new.

    If that is anti-branding, well pfft. I’ve yet to see greatness emerge from “safe and secure.”

    And what will Kerosene be? :)

  4. I’m so glad to hear about your dad. That alone will make the holidays one to remember. Thanks for the list. I agree with Penelope, we need a link to this list.

  5. Okay Penny and Stephanie – I’ll add a page. I don’t have room on my home page. :P

  6. Romantic Suspense, Amber. A real fire-starter!

  7. Thanks, Jaye. I have so little time to worry about branding. If not being branded is the worst thing about me, well, that ain’t so bad… ;)
