Genre Hopping

That gray period between the alarm going off and actually climbing out of bed can be used for something better than cursing the climbing out of bed part. Last night I woke up with a half-formed idea, possibly helped along by sinus drugs.

By the time I got up a the idea had solidified, right down to some characters and lines, for a new novel—a fantasy parody, kind of an anti-Harry Potter. (I mean in an anti-hero kind of a way; we’re very pro-Harry Potter in our house.)

Despite my history with humor, I’ve never written a full parody before—nor have I ever written a fantasy, so there I go genre hopping again. That’s the least of my problems, considering I get ten or twelve good story ideas for every story I actually get time to write. I also recently came up with an idea for a new book in the Storm Chaser series, although whether that ever gets written depends on sales of The Notorious Ian Grant.

Someday, one of my books will hit with a larger audience (I hope). When that happens, it might be a signal to stick with that one genre for a while, and build an audience. Meanwhile, all I really need for Christmas (other than book sales) is more time to write. Does anyone have a favorite, out of what I’ve published so far?

I haven't read everything you've published so far ("I'm sorry," she said, rather embarrassed), but of the ones I've read, I love The Notorious Ian Grant. Laugh out loud in public funny and a good story, too. (I still want to see him when he's introduced to euchre!)

I'm hoping you get a chance to see that someday! I do want to play more in that world, but I really have to make some more sales, first. Maybe I'll write another Storm Chaser related short story for Christmas.
