Exploring New Subgenres

I was going to call it “genres” but that’s not really true. With the exception of “Though the Mists,” I don’t plan to go far from the romance genre. But I don’t think I’ll only write historical romances.

So, what other subgenres am I considering? Paranormal romance. And not because it is “hot.” I am not trying to write the next “Twilight.” Though I did submit a sample to be a ghostwriter for the Nostalgia Chick’s “50 Shades of Green” project. Sadly, I was not chosen. I wish whoever it was luck.

Remember this post from last year? It was a bit rambly, yes, but I guess that’s what I get for writing when tired. But I talked about a new fantasy idea. I’ve flirted with it on and off for almost a year but focused more on “The Wedding Game” and “The Conference House.”

But every so often, you need a break from your writing. And sometimes, you need to try a different genre. So I’m trying paranormal romance. I’m trying to just start writing, but I am also world building. A whole magical underground in the various cities around the world. It should be fun.

Wish me luck!



  1. Good luck!

    There is so much paranormal to explore 🙂

  2. Also, have you checked out any of Christopher Pike’s adult fiction? The Blind Mirror is a good example of paranormal romance (it’s kind of a romance-mystery hybrid) that doesn’t involved vampires or werewolves or anything of that sort.

    • Hmm, I’ll give it a glance. I do have some Amazon gift cards from my birthday to use after all. Thanks for the suggestion!
