Back in Time
We had a great family day on Saturday. My husband and I took the kids to Old Sturbridge Villiage. After stopping off at the visitor center, we stepped back in time to around 1830. The buildings, people and way of life were all preserved for our enjoyment. Even though our kids were very young, I think they still got a lot out of it. Our oldest even took her first ride in a buggy (I forgot how bumpy those rides were!)
Of course, with me being a writer, I asked a lot of questions. As the actors answered my curiosity, my gears started turning and I came up with a page or two of notes and story ideas — all with paranormal elements, of course.
None of the ideas are fully developed yet, but I think one or two of them might actually become submissions. I’m not sure how well they will be received. Talk about your cross-genre story! Who would want to read a historical paranormal romance? What if was erotic, too?
Truth is, I love historicals, always have. It’s rare when I can find a book that blends both historical and paranormal elements, but when I do, I devour it. I’ve found both erotic and sensual stories, and think each has its own appeal.
This Friday, Dawn will be chatting with Elizabeth Amber, an erotic romance author whose “Lord of the Saytr” series achieved exactly what I’m thinking for my next story. Elizabeth’s story takes place in Italy in the 1800’s on a vinyard owned by three Satyr brothers. In honor of her interview, I’ll be giving away a copy of the first novel of her series, Nicholas. I have it on good authority that Elizabeth will be giving away something as well. Be sure not to miss it.
Until then, I’m asking you…do you read historical paranormal romance? Erotic or Sensual? Do you have a book/series recommendations? Would you like to hear more about these type of books and auhors who write them?
