Out of the blue reader request
A reader wrote to me recently, asking me to write a particular character type.
That's never happened to me before!
I've had lots of reader mail asking all kinds of questions about my published works, but this was the first one who gave me an assignment. I was intrigued!
I asked for any good sources on the subject (fairies) so I could research them first. To be honest, I don't think I've ever read a book in my style (paranormal comedy) with faeries in it. But I've read enough to realize they're not always full of rainbows, puppies and sunshine. Sometimes they're downright mean! What fun!
So, thank you dear reader. Now that I've finished the novella I had started a year ago and the novel I was contracted to write by Sept 30th, I can enjoy reading all about the fae. I'll start with the sources you gave me, and if anyone out there knows of some terrific research resources for me, give me a yell! Either here or privately. firstname.lastname@example.org
However, I'm still planning to write a series with my writing partner Dalton Diaz and we have an idea which would involve ghosts--not fairies. So, here I go...working on two projects at once again. Possibly three! I still have a tiger shapeshifter/India story in my head.
That's okay. All that work will keep me out of trouble! Something fairies don't worry about. Heh heh
