The Horror Infused Romance
By Natalie-Nicole Bates
When people find out I’m a published author, they inevitably ask the question, What do you write?
To me, it’s always been a no-brainer answer. I write contemporary and paranormal romance. Simple. Easy.
Recently, a blogger did a post about my new novella, Remember The Stars. Something stuck out in the post, something odd that I’ve never seen associated with my writing—the novella was listed under horror!
Well, that was a first.
Sure, my previous story, SEE ME (available at Leap of Faith Publishing)does feature one graphic scene of horror in the prologue, but SEE ME is still a pure love story with paranormal characters that I love. And, I will admit that many readers read the blurb for SEE ME and tell me it scares them!
When I wrote Remember The Stars, its intentions were always to be a short love story that takes place over one night. But the difference between SEE ME and Remember The Stars is that SEE ME occurs over fairly normal circumstances, Remember The Stars features a between life and death scenario, and to my surprise, I realized that I had created something magical, I had taken a love story and encased it inside a horror story!
How cool is that?
I take this latest discovery as a compliment. I think there is a sect of readers out there who enjoy horror with their romance, who enjoy seeing the characters in an extreme perilous circumstances but love still prevails. I hope you will read Remember The Stars, available now from Books To Go Now. If you enjoy Remember The Stars, be sure to get your copy of SEE ME from Leap of Faith Publishing.
