Looking for story ideas!
I am coming to the end of my Rescue River series for Harlequin, and getting ready to propose a new series. I need help! If you’ll comment about which of the series ideas listed below appeals to you the most—and why—I’ll put you in a drawing for my first three Rescue River stories. That’s three signed paperbacks! And it means you’ll be all caught up for The Soldier and the Single Mom, book four out of five in the series.
A little about book four of the Rescue River series, coming out March 1st but possibly available in your Wal-Mart a couple of weeks sooner. Here’s the storyline:
When Buck Armstrong rescues Gina Patterson and her baby from a dark country road outside town, he intends to keep his distance. Gina and little Bobby remind the handsome veteran too much of all he’s lost. The vulnerable single mom seems equally wary of getting involved. But things change once Gina and her son settle into his sister’s boardinghouse. Being with Gina and Bobby makes Buck question his plans to leave town for a fresh start. Suddenly he has dreams of forging a new family, even though it will mean risking his heart. But can he escape his past for a chance at a happy future?
Some of the elements I love the most are in this book: small town, wounded warrior, struggling single mom, animal rescue… and a cute baby! Now, the trick is to figure out a new series that I love just as much, and one that appeals to readers. Soooo… out of the following ideas, which would you make you (a) excited to get the books, and (b) likely to stay up late to read them? Which of the following ideas would make the best new series?
The Wedding Barn
A farm on the edge of a small Ohio town is inherited with the stipulation that it be made into a site for weddings, while continuing to be a working farm—stories involve the wedding planner, the wedding caterer, and the farm manager.
The Maverick brothers grew up rough and got in lots of trouble, but were saved by Preacher Jeb during their teen years. Now, coming together to save Preacher’s homestead for troubled boys in the face of his serious illness, they each find love. Set in West Virginia.
A wealthy woman who lost her dog-loving son to PTSD complications starts an “old dogs home” where struggling veterans can stay and heal while caring for abandoned senior dogs. Set in a small mountain town outside Boulder, Colorado.
