Sweet romance & zombie apocalypse: Should the genres mix or not?

 

What if a writer is inspired to write two stories that fall into two different genres? Should they write both despite the fact that their readers might not follow one of the genres? Or will fans of an author be interested regardless, provided there is a common thread they like that runs through that particular writer’s work? Check out this video and find out!

 

Shakespearian romance and why I love it

Some books, some movies, have this tragic heart-breaking moment for our main protagonist, where the viewers/readers cannot but weep with them.

I love those scenes!

I love watching them (in movies), reading them (in books) and writing them as well (in my own novels). If you like those too, do let me know what do you think about Shakespearian scenes in my own novels.

 

What inspired me to write “The Senthien”?

What was my inspiration to write “The Senthien”, and when did it happen? Watch this video and find out!
—Spoiler alert– If you didn’t read “The Senthien” don’t watch this video, please. There are mysteries for my readers they need to find out on their own when reading the book. It would be a shame if you saw the answer to one of them before you even start with your Senthien adventure.

 

 

Why do (my) books take so long to write?

 

A (good) book may be late for six months, but a book published too soon is bad forever by Rachel Aaron

 

I’ve received a few emails from you guys asking “When will the book be ready?”

Soon, I promise! Honestly!

But here’s a quick look at the whole process to show you why Swift Escape isn’t out yet. It’s a bad excuse, I know, but at least it offers some explanation 🙂

Here it goes. (Feel free to skip lines 1–40 😉 I won’t mind.) Continue reading “Why do (my) books take so long to write?”

Name my character!

Every time I’m at the finish line of writing a story (please bear in mind, it’s a lengthy finish line), I usually disappear from the social media.

For a long while.

Like now.

I’ve been absent from Twitter, I’ve only scrolled through Facebook every few weeks and blog posts have been non-existent.

And that’s because when I’m writing a novel, that’s all I’m writing: nothing else.

The new novel Continue reading “Name my character!”

Summer reads

Getting ready for summer? Downloading new books on your Kindle? Here’s something that might help 🙂  The Senthien is this week on special!

If you haven’t read it yet, use this opportunity.

If you have, please recommend it to your friends.

And enjoy the summer!

Yours, Tara

What is this?

Very quick post here.

A few days ago my family and I went to “Swiss Science Center Technorama” (kids always love it!). There are thousands of experiments to do and observe.

Among other things, I found – this.

Earth magnetic field

Who knows what this is?

Those of you who read “The Senthien” will probably recognise it and know right away why was this interesting for me 😉

Unrelated to this post, I changed somewhat “The Senthien” book cover. In my pol, I had many who voted for that cover. My preference was the old one (just a tree), but perhaps this one might draw more attention from the potential readers, who knows?

The cool thing about being a self-published author is that I can do that 🙂 I can simply change things, and that‘s awesome!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
