I started a new book last night. Sidewalks in in the hands of my readers at the moment and to keep myself from going bonkers while I wait for feedback, I decided to just dive into a new story.
This one is something different for me. It's historical and kind of a western, with romance thrown in. I'm calling it Between Paradise and Nowhere.
I actually already wrote this story a couple of years back. I planned it to be a category romance but it never really worked. I keep thinking about the characters though, and about a month ago I started wondering what might happen if I rewrote it as YA. The idea wouldn't let me go, so here I am.
While I'm essentially following the same plot outline, I've changed one of the POV characters to make the love triangle (or square) stronger. I've also made the characters younger, which changes the dynamics a little.
After one night's work, I'm feeling quite good about the project, but who know's how I'll feel in three weeks...
Have you ever reimagined a book you've already written? How did it work out?
