Updating the Blog for an “Other Genres” Category and Writing

I’ll have to update my website, but for now, I focused on updating this blog because this is my main hangout.

I have changed the “pen name” tab on this blog to “other genres”.  I decided to do this so I could have a place to put the books in the Enchanted Galaxy Series.  This way I can neatly tuck in my other genre books in one place.  From time to time, I’ll get a question about Return of the Aliens because people can’t easily find it.


It’s not a popular book.  I’d say it’s one of my least popular (which makes sense since I focus so much on writing romance).  But at least now, I have an easy way to help people find it.  I’m going to start adding it to the list of books at the end of my books, and I added it in the chronological order of books on this blog.

As for the nonfiction writer-type books, I should probably put those up at some point.  I just hate to mix fiction with nonfiction on this blog and my website.  LOL  That’s probably a weird quirk.  I’m going to wait and see if I still want to do it in a few weeks.

What I want to try my hand at (hopefully next year, but we’ll see) is horror.  I’ve read horror, and so much of it has the sad ending.  I want one with a happy ending.  Also, so many people die.  Maybe that’s supposed to be the point, but I like the idea of more people living than dying.  I’d like to do a more psychological horror.  The closest I’ve done to it is the Return of the Aliens book.  But in this one, I want romance to be a central theme.  I’ll probably scribble something down and see how it goes.  If it fizzles out, I don’t need to finish it.

His Wicked Lady ebook cover

In the meantime, I’m done updating this blog and am almost halfway done with the last book in the Enchanted Galaxy Series.  I jumped ahead and wrote two pages in His Wicked Lady.  Malcolm’s father is anxious to see him married off, and I have an idea of what will lead him to seek out a marriage matchmaking service (which is pretty much what Helena, Melissa, and Chloe agreed to set up at the end of the last Regency series).  So this series will pick up where the last series left off with the same group of lovable (and sometimes mischievous characters).

As much as I’d like to work on the other two romances I’ve picked, I don’t have that much time in the day.  Maybe tomorrow.

  1. I enjoyed “Return of the Aliens”. I read a variety of genres but wasn’t sure if I would like this book because you are primarily a Romance author. Writers who write novels about the end times often get so bogged down in trying to include all of the Biblical prophecies and trying to convey what they believe to be the interpretation of those prophesies that the story becomes cumbersome and the characters weak. I did not get that feeling with ” Return of the Ailiens”.

    • I know what books you’re talking about because I’ve tried reading them. I then tried to skim through those parts, but even then, I lost interest. I prefer books to get to the action and stay there.

      I’m glad my book wasn’t boring!

    I really enjoyed the previous three books so looking forward to this next matchmaking one.


  3. I liked Return of the Aliens. It’s totally different from anything else you’ve done.

    I can’t wait to read His Wicked lady. That’s the one I’m looking forward to the most right now.

    • I enjoyed writing Return of the Aliens. I’m glad I wrote it, but I think it was the only book of its kind that I ever want to write. So it’s definitely not my platform, which is why I don’t mention it a lot. I’m glad I wrote it.

      I don’t see myself doing any more fantasies either, though I can see making a romance with some fantasy element in it, like His Abducted Bride. I’m curious to see how the horror thing plays out.

      I’m anxious to really get into His Wicked Lady. I already have some ideas that will make the book a lot of fun. 🙂

  4. I really liked Return of the Aliens. It is a suspenseful biblical end times thriller. I am not one much on thrillers, but this captivated me along with your romances. God bless.

  5. I liked Return of the Aliens, too! And I;d be interested to see a horror book from you 🙂 I love odd ball genre-romance (There is a romance/sci-fi series by CG Copolla that I love)
