Thinking About My Plain Fame Series

I’m on vacation so I suppose I should be relaxing at the beach, sipping a cold drink, and relaxing. Well, I’m basically doing all of those things but the relaxing part. I don’t think that I was intended to be a relaxing sort of person. I’m too reflective and think too much about things.

Today I’m thinking about my Plain Fame series. When I first wrote Plain Fame, I knew that it was going to be a three book series. I had not considered writing more books about Amanda and Alejandro. After all, it was the perfect ending in Times Square.

But people kept asking for more books. They loved Amanda and Alejandro. They wanted to know what happened after Times Square.

Fortunately, my publisher felt the same way.

When we did the cover shoot for the books, it was a little like stepping into a different world, a world that we normally see on television or in movies. The amazing thing was that it was a world that I had created in my mind. Lights, cameras, music, action.

I really had hoped to see the same enthusiasm for the Plain Return and Plain Choice books, especially now that we had two characters on the covers that were the exact people I imagined when I wrote the books. How exciting to see that come together!

Writing a book takes a lot of time…not just the actual writing but the time planning, thinking, day dreaming, editing, proofreading, re-writing, and more. It’s not as simple as sitting down at a laptop and doing a brain-dump into Word. The author’s reward is the comments, emails, messages, and reviews from the readers.

So while I’m here on vacation, my inner reflective person is wondering how everyone will react to Plain Choice when it releases in March. What will the reader think of the conclusion to the saga about Amanda and Alejandro? Will they sigh and hold the book to their chest, feeling the same love toward the famous couple that they felt after Plain Fame? Or will it be deeper and stronger?

You let me know. And be certain to have your book on order: paperback and eBook.

  1. Have preordered the new book, can’t wait to read it. I can see these books becoming ones that I re-read annually. On another note, I treated myself to a coffee pot like yours, it arrived today and I love it.

  2. I love to read but your series transports my mind to where Amanda and Alejandro are.
    I wish their story could just go on and on. I’d be happy reading about them until they are great grandparents rocking in chairs on a porch in Amish country or Florida or wherever their lives take them.
    As long amiss you write Amish shout them I will keep buying their story.

  3. This series was wonderful. The characters were “alive” . I too wish the series could go on and on. Keep us posted.
