I’ve been asked a lot lately about what’s next for a Heartsong theme. I explained our current theme awhile back in this post. But now I’m down to only ten historical state settings and ten contemporary states settings that I still need to finish out all fifty. That will take us on through 2010 at least, and release of the collections will extend beyond that. But we have started to think ahead.
Our sales numbers tell us that this state theme was a good one. Readers like these setting-driven stories based in the good old USA. So, we may just do another round. Or we may try something a little different that is still very setting-driven. I do get feedback from readers wanting more exotic locations in foreign countries. But there’s also common feedback asking for things like more books in favorite state settings, more American Revolution stories, more prairie settings, and more mail-order bride stories.
So, the next Heartsong theme is still TBD, but we’re brainstorming. I’d love to hear your thoughts. If you have a great idea for our next theme, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy weekend! Remember to turn your clocks ahead on Saturday night!
