Blog Post- Venturing Into the Great Unknown

Venturing Into the Great Unknown by Linda Mooney

Sometimes an author wants to stretch her writing wings and try conjuring up a story in a genre she’s never tried before. It’s usually a hit-or-miss proposition, depending upon whether she likes going down that particular rabbit hole, and if the story sells. It’s also a somewhat tricky proposition because she may have to resort to a pseudonym if the new genre is radically different from her current genre of choice.

In most cases, she may have read a few books in that different genre, which is why she considers trying her own hand at a story. But what if the genre she wants to try doesn’t exist? What if it’s a genre that, as far as she knows, no one has tried before? Or, if there are some stories of a similar ilk, they’re so far and few, that it’s difficult to find them?

Then it becomes an experiment. An experiment to see if there are readers out there who’ll embrace her new venture. An experiment to see if her story is well-received or soundly trashed. An experiment that could either end with her never writing that kind of story again, or where she expounds upon it with more books.

This is why my newest release is a paranormal horror romance. Something brand new for me, and one I hope others will enjoy.

With the cold weather quickly setting in, Lark is trying to ensure she has what she needs to make it through another bone-chilling winter in the cabin in the woods, but something has decided to pay her a visit. The question is, who? Or better yet, what?
There is a human invading his sanctuary, and he is determined to get rid of her. Humans in the past have left of their own accord, but not without a threat from him. However, this one is proving difficult. But she’ll go. One way or another, he will make her.
The thing is demanding that Lark leave, but she has nowhere to go. No one who cares.  So she's determined to stand her ground.

After all, what does she have to lose, besides her life?
