How you see your work and how someone else sees your work can be quite a surprise.
Romantic Thriller? I thought I was writing a Suspense novel. Then, my agent commented that my second novel, The Final Gate, could be positioned as a Romantic Thriller if I added a little more romance.
Oh, Oh, I think. I like to read novels that are full of action, so that’s what I like to write. But Romance? Who knew?
Over the last couple of months, I’ve been reading Romantic Thrillers to get a feel for the genre and discovered my novel is not that far off. But . . .
I spent three months on rewrites, that’s the fun part, and now I’m back to proofreading. I’ve just sent The Final Gate to my favourite readers for comments, so I’ll see how they like the new romantic version.
This is a change for me, and I’m nervous about the feedback. I guess I’ll have to wait and see . .
Maybe my husband will send me flowers for all the hard work I’ve done – that’s kinda romantic.
