Thank goodness I woke up to a nice, sunny day! For a change. It's chilly, though. Fall is around the bend. There is snow on the peaks already.
I've been working on a story called Starla for now. I name the ms after the heroine until I come up with a title. It's a Black Mountain novella and almost done! Yay!
I'm anxious to move on to something different for awhile. I've been working on the Black Mountain series for quite some time, and while I love my characters, and could probably write another six-seven of that series, I'm burnt out on it at the moment.
So I'm considering working on a Gothic. I've always loved the genre, and got started reading romance with Victoria Holt.
My Gothic is a little different from the traditional Gothic. It's not set back east somewhere, not Maine, but in Colorado.
No, there's no cowboy. LOL I know, right? Can I even write a man who doesn't wear a Stetson? Of course I can. Trey and Jace from Mississippi Blues do not, and neither does Kelly from A Real Bad Burn (unreleased). And set on an island, not along the coast.
My question for all of you is this: what makes a Gothic?
