I've blogged before about ageism and the lack of characters above the age of forty in romance novels. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good romance with young, fresh characters discovering life and love together. But love happens at any age and it's just as wonderful, just as passionate, and even more complicated for men and women who have more life experiences to draw from, more family to interfere, more baggage to carry around. And I've been talking to many readers who aren't twenty-five any longer, in fact could be considered "of a certain age", and would like to read about characters they can relate to.
I'm happy to oblige. I'm really enjoying writing characters closer to my own age. I understand them better than characters who are younger than my children. And I'm even happier for them when they find a second chance at happiness. And besides, I have quite a soft spot for those sexy silver foxes. So that's why I named my series, Silver Fox Romance. My talented cover artist, Lacey Savage, designed a sassy logo - isn't it great?
So you can look for the logo on the upcoming books in the series which will begin releasing this fall. And OMG we're almost out of August, so you'll be able to enjoy them sooner rather than later! If you'd like to follow along with the news on the books, the characters, giveaways, and swag with the sexy Silver Fox logo, you can sign up for my mailing list.
I've also started a Facebook page. There's not much going on there at the moment, but I'll be posting info there soon, so click here to LIKE now.
The Silver Fox Romances are set in Best Bay, a fictional lakeside village in western NY. Most of the heroes are members of the Best Bay Volunteer Fire Department, guys who put their lives on the line and often dinner on hold to respond to emergencies in their community. With titles like Choose Me, Rescue Me, Trust Me they are sexy, emotional, character driven stories with humor and passion.
I hope you'll look forward to starting on the Silver Fox Romance journey with me!
