You're reading a wonderful romance book, fall in love with the characters, and they get their happily ever after. What's the one thing a reader wants after they finish a romance book they love?
They want more. They don't want to leave the characters. They want to know what happens after the happily ever after because they really enjoyed spending time with them. Am I close?
The problem with romance category books, and the reason readers want more is the fact that there's only so much time you can cover between the meet-cute to the declaration that they love each other. Time varies, but 1 year is the average.
The only way to give more is to step into another genre. Fiction literature has no time constraints. Here are the definitions below…
Romance – Novels of this type of genre fiction place their primary focus on the relationship and romantic love between two people, and must have an "emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending."
Family Saga – A genre of literature which chronicles the lives and doings of a family or a number of related or interconnected families over a period of time.
Now, here's the information I want to give to my readers. If you read my last newsletter, I said that my next release will cross boundaries. I'm talking genre boundaries. My next release is a Family Romance Saga…which isn't a real thing. So, for clarification, it will be placed in the ROMANCE category, and it will also be placed in the LITERATURE category, under the sub-category Saga.
Confused yet? Don't be. It will feel like a Debra Kayn novel. You're just going to get a deeper romance, more time spent in the lives of the characters, and a slower read. Slower meaning, you're going to absorb the story. It's not a book where you love it, toss it aside, and go grab another romance book, cause you're now invested in my characters. My advice to those who read 2-3 books a day is to give my next book a day to itself, maybe 2 days.
This book will solve the "want more" that readers ask for.
Soon, I will show you the cover, the blurb, the release date. It will look different. Now, you know why.
It'll be up to readers to decide if MORE is better.
