Working on Magic Shifts this morning. Poor Kate can’t get away from her band of misfits.
Someone asked us during the New York trip what motivated us to work on Burn For Me. The honest answer is, I wanted to read a book like that and I couldn’t find it. I wanted the high magic and high technology and I wanted to see a romantic relationship explored against that background. I also wanted to see someone question how we treat our veterans. In romance, sometimes military personnel is subject to the same fetishising as Scotsmen. Not that many people acknowledge that being a veteran or living with one isn’t always easy.

I also wanted a book that would be funny. A book where a heroine had a family and they were a real family, the kind that loves you unconditionally and can drive you completely nuts. I couldn’t find it, so I talked Gordon into writing one with me. The sad thing now, I can’t read it. Reading our books after they are finished makes me cringe. Except for Silver Shark. For some reason, I can reread that one.
But anyway, I was wondering, what is your dream book? The one that you would love to read but nobody has written yet?
Fair warning: you’re on a writers’ site. We have no shame. If you don’t want to risk your dream book being written by us or other authors who frequent this crazy place, it’s best not to share it. 🙂
