Join Prism Book Alliance® as Adrian J Smith goes Outside the Margins today.
It’s always an adventure to write a new story or a new genre. I love the challenge, I love the thrill, I love trying something new. And no, it doesn’t always work out in my favor. For about a year, year and a half, now, I’ve been thinking about writing in a completely different genre than what I normally write it.
It would mean starting over. New audience, new people to meet, new pen name. It’d be a scary endeavor. It’d be something I have already done once, with this pen name, and believe me, it was hard to start out. It’s still hard.
Lesbian fiction isn’t a huge genre in and of itself, but it has very loyal fans, as I was reminded last night. But to step outside the lesbian world, to take a leap of faith into something new would be exhilarating.
I’m known for genre hopping, but nothing quite this big as of yet. It’ll be an experience for sure. But I’ve learned quite a bit in my time as an author. I’ve learned that maybe going into the publishing world with a business plan might be advantageous. I’ve learned what that business plan could be (and guess what, I’ve actually made one).
So for this new venture, I wait with baited breath. It’ll take at least (AT LEAST!) two years to come to fruition, so we shall see! 24 months is a long time to wait.

About Adrian J Smith
Adrian J. Smith, or AJ as she is often called, has a generous and soft heart. She loves to rescue stray cats and dogs, as well as those who just escape. Her hoard of animals currently includes two cats, a dog and a fish, but no children as of yet. She’s passionate about LGBT et al rights, women’s rights and children’s rights.
AJ loves to read and write lesbian fiction, simply for the fact that strong women make her swoon and when two are involved her knees turn to jelly and she falls head over heels in love. AJ travels around the United States, and sometimes the world, gathering up stories for her novels. Currently, she lives in the middle of nowhere of the middle of nowhere and is rather difficult to find except on the internet, where she spends a lot of her time..
