When you’re an indie author, we spend a lot of time working on brand and creating a place for our name and what readers can expect when they see us putting out a new story. Whether it’s small town (Devney Perry), large interconnected families (Karla Sorensen), sports, comedy (Meghan Quinn), etc., and I’ve always struggled with this. Write to market or write to our creative sides? We’re told to stay in our lane, but no matter how hard I try, I just can’t.
I love writing stories. The characters start talking and they consume me. I love this part of being a writer. I’ve written NA, Sports, Contemporary, Foodie, Inspirational, Comedy, and now I’m dipping my toe into Women’s Fiction. I don’t want to be a single lane, I want to be a highway with lots of lanes and I don’t want to fear the transition from one to another. I want the reader to know that when they pick up a story of mine, no matter what the overall genre is, it’s going to be a great read. Can’t that be my lane? Will there always be a love story? Yes. There’s nothing better than the feeling of falling in love. So I’m sure you’re asking why Women’s Fiction?
A romance novel focuses entirely and completely on the romantic relationship and guarantees a happy ending for the heroine and hero. Women’s fiction focuses on a woman’s journey, wherever that may take her and whatever that may encompass. This story is about Ryla. Sometimes Women’s Fiction doesn’t have an HEA, but never fear the romantic in me will ALWAYS make sure there is (maybe that’s part of my brand too…) Could this story be called a contemporary romance, absolutely, but at the end of the day it’s true to the definition of Women’s Fiction.
If you’re breaking out of your comfort zone to read this, I promise you won’t be disappointed. If you’re a loyal of mine over the last decade, I can’t say thank you enough for trusting that I’m always going to give you an amazing story. Two days away. Two. Days. I can’t wait for y’all to read this story.
Much love, KA
