It’s a holiday week, so hopefully today is everyone’s Friday. With celebration in mind, we’ll have two posts today. First, is a brand new contemporary romance by Kathryn Maeglin.
Welcome, Kathryn, and thank you for stopping by.
Kathryn: I have good news for YOU, dear reader. The e-publishing revolution means there are now more books that combine genres. For example, if you like books that blend romance and mystery, you may have had difficulty finding such books in the past. That’s because publishers usually preferred books that fit neatly into just one genre category—for ease of marketing, shelving, etc.
Now that there are many more publishing options, books that blur the genre lines have a much better chance of finding their way to you. My new novel A Hunka Hunka Nursing Love is a good example of one that straddles genre boundaries. Technically, it’s women’s fiction, meaning it focuses primarily on the woman’s journey. But it also includes quite a bit of romance. Here’s a brief description:
Imagine a visiting-nurse service with hot young guys as caregivers. What golden girl wouldn’t dig that?
Valerie Palka is a savvy businesswoman who is obsessed with keeping her elderly mom, Helen, safe from all the lethal disasters that can befall widows living alone. Helen thinks the workaholic Valerie should focus on having as much luck in the bedroom as she does in the boardroom. But when Helen takes a spill and is rushed to the ER, a handsome male nurse, Keith Nuber, strikes her fancy, and she tells her daughter, “If you could get a handsome devil like that to take care of me, I’d be willing to consider it.” So Valerie creates a care agency, Home Health Hunks, staffed by attractive younger men.
Valerie’s idea is filled with potential … and potholes. As she navigates the tricky road to satisfying her mom as well as her own ambition, she finds herself falling for one of her employees—Keith—and is forced to examine her beliefs about the true meaning of success.
As you can see, this novel will appeal not only to those who can relate to the challenges of caring for an aging parent, but also those who enjoy some spicy romance, all delivered with a touch of humor. Life doesn’t always fit into categories. Why should our fiction have to?
Whatever you enjoy reading, I hope the new publishing landscape will open up wonderful vistas for you to explore. Bon voyage!
