I know I write a lot of serious fiction, and magical realism, horror, etc. I try to capture realism, even when I write non-serious fiction. However, since I am stretching my limits with a mystery sub plot as part of The Harvest: A Novel (Draft), which I posted more of, I was thinking, "Why not take a shot at a romance?"
I used to read paperback romances all the time, and found the historical ones to be really fascinating. Now in the wake of Kindles, I suppose romantic short stories are becoming more popular. So, I am going to write one, take a chance, but I will most likely publish it under a pseudo name like Hope or Horizon or something I actually won't write here if I use it. I suppose I should scope out other romance pen names. I want mine to be somewhat cheesy.
Dude, I got it. Ha ha ha. I have it on my sticky.
Well, the other pen names like T. S. Ryder and Christy McKellen are equally goofy. Though, the first one is somewhat cool, though Ryder could be sexual.
Anyway, we will see. I guess screwing billionaires and step brothers is in. That must be that romance that almost crosses the smut line. What are people reading these days? Good lord!
I don't want my story to be quite that bad, but I do want the romantic hook up elements in it. Otherwise, who would read it?
Here's to taking romantic risks, but not "porny", chances. #Resist
