@valerie. LOL It’s the whole shifter/vampire thing in romance. So I think the “paranormal” is the sub-genre of both the romance and mystery genres. It’s that paranormal element that sets it apart from others in the genre.
Good point about bouncing ideas off other romance authors. I was talking to my writing partner (who is doing the challenge and writes contemporary romance) and she said not to worry about–that even if I don’t have anyone to swap with, I’ll get a cookie written. She has more faith in me than I have in myself. LOL Plus we have Tammi who says she’s written everything. 😀
