With As the Liquor Flows finished and weeks from release, it’s time to start back into my fifth novel, The Parking Space.
I have to admit that this novel has been in my files for awhile. A long while. In all honesty, this novel was the third story I dreamed up when I first started writing almost seven years ago.
Yikes. That is a long time.
Unfortunately, for it, every time I came up with a new idea for a historical, it would get put on the back burner.
It’s not because it didn’t interest me or I didn’t want to write it, it just got shoved back for the simple reason that I wanted to establish myself in historical romance before I branched out by doing a chick lit.
And I’m glad I did.
Because now I’m ready for a much needed break in having to do a bunch of history research. I’m ready for an easier novel. Not that chick lits are easy, it’s still a novel and no novel is ever “easy” to write, but I do a lot of research for my historical romances and I’m ready for a break from that.
I’m also ready for a novel packed with humor and I can’t wait to sprinkle jokes and one liners all over the pages.
So darling followers, have you ever grown tired of a genre and switched? Did you find it better? Worse? And how many did you write before you switched back?
