Cross Current music playlist - Cornish Heroes series

My vision for the Cornish Heroes series

I’ve been planning my writing projects for the next couple of years and I thought I would set out how I see the Cornish Heroes series progressing since I am almost ready to publish Cross Current. 

Like most romance series, I see each book following one couple with loose ties to Cornwall and the military. At the moment, I plan on writing 5 books. The first 4 will cover the backstories of the characters who will come together as a team in book 5. So, although they can be read in any order, the actual publication order would be:

  • Book 1: Ebb Tide – Will & Jo
  • Book 2: Cross Current – Noah & Amy
  • Book 3: Highwater Haven – Zoe & Ben
  • Book 4, 5: TBA

After that, I plan to write a few different series exploring other genres-still romantic suspense, but with less of a military influence. For example, I am thinking of following the cops for one series, a paranormal link in another, and possibly a historical mystery series later. 

Instead of writing different genres with different pen names, I will simply link them under different series names. This is not only easier to manage but also because they really will all still be romantic suspense books. 

Ideally, I’d like to publish 1 or 2 books a year, but anyone who has been following my ‘adventures’ with Cross Current will know that that is much easier to say than do!

So, anyway, that’s the plan. 

On a related note, I am reposting my playlist for Cross Current in case someone finds it interesting. I basically get a lot of my ideas from music videos so I think you can get a ‘richer’ experience of a book when you listen to the music and see the images that inspired it too …
