So today is the first year birthday celebration of my first indie release – yay! The Breakup Project released a year ago, and it’s been a fun ride on the Indie Author Express.
This past year I’ve tried all kinds of new things, including (and not limited to): rapid releasing books, co-writing a book, writing a rom-com (Daring Mr Darcy, out February 14 as part of the My Funny Valentine collection), finally doing a newsletter magnet (get your copy of Originally Yours for free here!), redeeming books rejected by publishers and discovering readers love them anyway, working on an audiobook, and joining many, many joint author promos as I continue to pivot from being known for historicals to my personal sweet spot, contemporary romance.
Part of that has involved refining my genre to something a little more specific, so while I love writing sports romance, and have a new series coming out next year, I also love writing small town romance (partly because I live in one), such as the books in the Muskoka Shores romance series.
Which leads me to my questions for you today.
Writers love to know what readers like to see, so I’d be very grateful if you could answer the following questions, as it will help with future planning. So, please, take a moment to answer the following:
- Do you have a favourite trope? (eg friends-to-more, enemies-to-lovers, mistaken identity, marriage of convenience, fake engagement, nanny, royalty, rock star, etc)
- What is your favorite setting? (eg small town, big city, mountains, farm, ranch, island, lake, etc)
- Do you have a particular holiday / seasonal book you love to read? (eg give me all the Christmas books now! NYE books, etc)
- What season / theme do you think should have more books? (eg Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Bastille Day, Australia Day, etc)
Big thanks for answering my little survey. As a thank you, you can download your copy of The Breakup Project, a NYE friends-to-more, brother’s best friend fun romance filled with relatable characters, real settings, banter and swoony romance for FREE! (And grab the next two books in the series while they’re on sale here).
I trust your 2022 has been filled with many great and enjoyable reads, and that 2023 will see more exciting books and authors to discover.
Happy 2023 to you!
