Dragonfly, Teaser Tuesday!

We're in the homestretch, reader-friends! Less than a month and Dragonfly will be everywhere for your reading enjoyment.

I can't wait to share it with you, but in the meantime, I've got some fun picture teasers to get you ready.

The first excerpt, which is a little longer ran a few weeks ago here (link). Last Tuesday I ran a picture teaser featuring everybody's favorite artist Julian. (See it here.)

Today's is the couple from the first passage a little later in the story. See what you think~

On Goodreads

Have a super week, reader- and writer-friends!

I'm making he most of the last two weeks of school and focusing on finishing Undertow (Book #2) revisions. It's on schedule for July release (which is why you haven't been seeing me much).

Thanks, guys! More soon~

You are sure pumping them out at your zoo!

It says this book is YA/NA. Can you tell me if it's good for someone who prefers PG-13 romance?

Hi, Beth!

You've asked a great question, and a hard one--mostly b/c each person has his/her own idea of what's "too much."

I've had readers read Dragonfly and call it "solidly YA," while others say it's more "mature." I think it's PG-13, possibly even PG, depending on the reader.

It has steamy moments, but it's the same heat level as The Truth About Letting Go if you've read that one. If not, basically it has steamy kisses, some intimate moments, but no sex.

The Dragonfly series, however, WILL move quickly from YA to NA as the characters grow up and go to college or get married.

In UNDERTOW (#2), one of the couples gets married right out of HS, so there are sexual situations. Another goes to college and has sexual encounters; the mystery involves an affair, so there's that.

BUT! Important note: I do NOT write graphically or use language typically associated with erotic literature (wetness, tightness, p-words, c-words, multiple F-bombs, really no F-bombs from me ...etc.)

Bottom line: I think romance readers will find the books satisfactorily descriptive, but I'm not writing erotica.

Does that help at all? Thanks so much for asking! :o) <3

Sorry I haven't gotten those notes back to you yet! I really got swamped with the new job, basketball, etc. Hopefully, things will get back on track soon. I think they will. I even got to visit you here today! ((hugs))

LTM said...

((HUGS)) to you, Carolyn! I miss you bunches! Hang in there with the new job. You'll find your rhythm, and don't even worry about the notes. :o) <3 <3
