The Agony of Writing Historical Fiction Romance.

 Ugh! Okay, I could be more creative with words, because UGH doesn't really cover how I feel at the moment, but I'm behaving myself.

First of all, I am currently knee-deep in research for a new Native Brides novella. I hadn't planned on a three book series, but the first two have made a significant splash, and so I decided I should write at least one more with the hopes of putting all three into a trilogy paperback.

But, back at the topic I originally set out to write.

Book 3, I have decided, ever since I physically walked along the grounds of The Camp Grant Massacre, will take place amongst this setting. Why I would try and write a romance during such a tragic time makes me wonder about my sanity. It is with the upmost hope that I do not offend, belittle, or downright upset the Apache Nation or anyone else who have lost, suffered, or somehow affiliate themselves into the tragic event that occurred along the San Pedro River 1871.

As an fiction author, you wouldn't think this is stressful. I mean, it's fiction, it's romance, for crying out loud...just write. It's not a history book, its entertainment, and mostly, I would agree and have been guilty of playing with dates and events in order to tell a good tale. I still might in book 3.  But, this particular setting is really kind of getting to me, and I want to be as true as possible to the history and still try and find some good amongst the bad.

(Surely, someone had a story there. Surely, somebody was in love. Please tell me, there was love struggling to survive while all this took place.)

Historical romance in and of itself is a challenge.  Trying not to take sides is another. Our collective human history has been paved with the blood of all of our ancestors. But always, there was love, there was hope, there was a destiny.

2018! Let's Do This!

Happy New Year!
This year, lets not make resolutions, lets create a  revolution. How? Set small monthly goals. Yes we can, yes we will. Small success build large ones and are easier to visualize. I'm a big believer in visualization and staying focused on my thinking.

Walks With Him remains on Amazon's Best Seller list. (9 weeks yay!) and another Native Bride story will be releasing by the Fall. This one, looks to be a bit hotter and more adventurous. I'm in the middle of selling my home, so as soon as I settle in a shiny-new office, I'll be working hard on that.

My On Location VLOG will be filming again soon. First stop will be visiting Mattie Blaylock's grave. (A wife of Wyatt Earp). Should be interesting.

Its a brand-new year, let's make it a great one. If you'd like to be a part of a mailing list, please comment below. -EM :)

Its OnLocation Arizona time! #Vlog
