To sequel or not to sequel, that's my dilemma
Published mostly in adult romance (historical, contemporary, paranormal). I’ve published two upper YA /NA timetravels.
Falling Through Glass (w/a Barbara Sheridan in print with e-publisher)
Shadows Fall Away (w/a Kit Forbes out of print)
I’d like to do “stand alone” sequels to both (have some written) but wonder if something brand new (maybe contemporary– no TT) is a better idea.
If the characters grab me in the opening page, I’m in for the ride.
I’ll also give something a try if the general concept grabs me and makes me want to find out “what happens next”.
Most recent YA reads were Fixer and Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I’m about to start Royals by Rachel Hawkins.
I find it hard to get into present tense POV.
My favorite areas to write in are contemporary, historical and paranormal. I like being able to combine them when possible. Time travels FTW!
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
