I had some free time this morning while I was waiting for the laundry to finish, so I did a search (4 computers, 5 storage CDs) for all my book outlines and ideas and put them all in one place. I know I have some written notes on other titles, but they're in a box somewhere. It will take more than a free morning to find them.
I made a list of all the book ideas and tagged them by age and genre.
Currently there are 29.
10 Adult books—1 Fantasy/SciFi, 1 Literary, 5 Romance, 2 Suspense, 1 Historical
2 Middle Readers—both Fantasy
16 YA—3 Fantasy, 3 Realistic, 1 Romance, 9 Historical Adventure (LDS), and 1 I don't know how to categorize yet, possibly a coming of age
I know that when I find that box of notes, there will be several other YAs in there. At one time, I had counted 18 YA ideas and that didn't include some of the ones I thought of just this year. Unfortunately I'm not able to recall them at the moment.
But even without the missing files—that's a pretty impressive stack of books!
Could I die happy having written 29 books? I think so.
