I like to think so! Often writers struggle trying to find a subject that clicks. All the advice in the world can say to “write what you know” or “write what makes you happy” or “write about a subject you know will make you money.”
What if we start a little closer to home? What if we combine all three?
I came up with the idea for my self-published series at the RWA conference in San Diego this past July. After all, I live in a town with a single stoplight. Just one. In the entire county. Sound bizarre, right? However many tens or hundreds of thousands of people and a single stoplight to patrol them all. It may seem strange, but this is reality for the denizens of this tiny hamlet nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I made this one mechanical wonder the focus of my writing. Introducing new characters to the places I already know and love (with some tweaking, of course). A way to write about what I know, what makes me happy, and maybe, must maybe, capture the elusive dollar bills.
Although that’s not why I do what I do.
The newest release in my small-town contemporary series, the Promise Me series, is now up and running on all major website. Apple, Amazon, B&N, Kobo, you name it.
However, I would like some feedback.
