The dotted line

I signed a contract today for a novella with Samhain. It’s a…hmm…erotic dark paranormal, I guess you could call it? I’m really excited about this story, and I’ll get details on it up eventually. :woot:

So…to recap my contracted works:

1. An erotic romantic comedy

2. An emotional, traditional romance

3. An action/adventure romance

4. An erotic dark paranormal romance

5. An erotic fantasy

That whole branding thing? It must have zoooomed right by me. I’ve also got a couple of top secret things in the works, and then…another romantic comedy. I don’t care if it kills me, I need some funny.

    Well done, Shannon! I’m doing the futuristic thing right now and while it’s still erotic comedy, it’s so much fun to break out of the box.

    I think it’s better to brand your name instead of your genre.
