As some of you know, Herself, my esteemed editor, and I have been going round and round about what book I should write next. Of course, I could write anything I felt like and then hope that Ann, my esteemed agent, could sell it. But I keep hoping to tantalize Herself into offering me a contract.
I want to write a kind of multi-generational story, set in Marshall County and beginning around the time of the Civil War --which was especially uncivil in these parts.
Lots of romance, lots of lush scenery and period dialog, lots of fascinating characters.... I think it could be really good.
But in today's skittish publishing climate, They want something more, something that would really get people's attention. So...
What if I make some of the main characters vampires?
We could call it The Wind on Blood Mountain . . .
