to Later-In-Life, Second-Chance Romances & the website of Louise Murchie, a story-telling Scotswoman
who finally got brave enough to self-publish her romance stories via Amazon Kindle. Thank you, Lockdown!
When I wrote Gone Dutch, I intended it to be a stand-alone second-chance romance. The sweet-with-heat niche part came after when I found others writing the same genre as I was: the genre I couldn’t find. Because I couldn’t find what I wanted to read, I decided to create it.
I had planned out a romance series for afterwards, knowing that series sell better as it draws people into a world you’ve already taken the time to build. After all, your favourite author hasn’t just written one book in that World, have they?
That idea changed after having various conversations with other authors who understood the art of storytelling better than I did, and I was persuaded to make Gone Dutch into a series.
At the moment, the Gone Dutch series is unavailable as I’m looking to properly edit & relaunch this series. I had hoped it would happen in 2023, but given I’ve 4 new books scheduled for release in 2023, it’s going to be 2024 before I’m happy with the re-release of these.
Another series was completed as of 28th March 2022 (the Tango Down Duology) which is grittier and more romantic suspense than before, with a follow-on duology in the same world that’s been released (the Soul Song duology).
Research is currently underway for a few others. However, the underlying theme with all of my books is this: love. Specifically, sweet with heat, later-in-life, second-chance romance, involving mostly Scottish women. After all, write about what you know, aye?
Given the global situation, don’t we all require a little bit of romance in our lives? Even if it is only via the white pages of your Kindle.
