Over-Great Expectations

It IS great to have people like my books, but...

Here's the thing. I've had amazingly positive reviews for "Planning to Live". People are really connecting with it. And I'm thrilled by that.

But even as I'm thrilled, I'm also nervous. Because the next book, codenamed Blueberry, is so not the same thing.

"Planning to Live" is darker than anything I've done before. Blueberry is quite similar to "Go Small or Go Home". Not a pure romance, but with significant romantic elements mixed into a career-driven story. Definitely not as dark as its predecessor. Not as different.

Will the people who loved "Planning to Live" be disappointed in Blueberry?

I don't want to disappoint any of my readers. I want every last one to be happy with every last thing I write. Is that realistic? Nope. But it is what I want.

What do you think? If you love book A from an author but aren't as enamoured with book B, does it taint your feelings for A? Stop you buying C? BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop
