My guest today is author Paty Jager!

Wife, mother, grandmother, and the one who cleans pens and delivers the hay; award winning author Paty Jager has not only brought her husband of thirty years to maturity, but four children and over a hundred head of cattle and swine. She not only writes the western lifestyle, she lives it.

She has four historical western romance novels and one contemporary western, which won the 2008 Best Contemporary Romance EPPIE. To learn more about Paty, her books, and to enter her website contest go to

Paty's latest release is MINER IN PETTICOATS:

Shouldering the burdens of his family and the mining community, Ethan Halsey devotes himself to providing for his brothers’ growing families. However, Aileen Miller, a widow, also looking out for her family’s interests, refuses to part with the land he needs. As they battle- one to push his dream to reality and the other to prove no man will hurt her again- their lives become enmeshed and their hearts collide.

Paty is giving away a copy of PERFECTLY GOOD NANNY, plus some other mystery goodies. Do be entered in her giveaway, simply answer this question: Which of Paty's covers features a wolf?

Welcome, Paty!


As you can see by the titles on my website, I have a problem deciding what I want to write. The main constant is they are all western themed stories, but I can't decide if I want to do historical, contemporary, or paranormal. Does it bother you to have an author skip around in genres? Or as long as the theme is the same are you okay with the different genres? If you had to pick historical, contemporary, or paranormal which would you prefer to read?

Hi Paty!
I see it that way: you are looking for your own way and therefore you try more genres (or you like to write in different genres...) - it doesn't disturb me as long as I like the stories you have a main theme and I really like your golden thread! at the moment the paranormal genre is my favorite one ;)
wish you all the best *hugs*

todays answer: Spirit of the mountain (btw, the cover is really fantastic!!!)

I really enjoyed "Marshal in Petticoats." I do follow my favorite authors as they write in different genres. There are certain authors in which I prefer their historicals to their contemporaries and vice versa. The cover of "Spirit of the Mountain" features a wolf.

Elisabeth, Thanks for having me here today!

And you will all notice my website is behind. My daughter who takes care of it has been moving and getting settled along with the holidays and three small children, so I've given her some slack on the updates. ;)

Hi Ina,

I slipped into the paranormal by default. I wrote about Indian spirits and therefore it put me in paranormal when I really think of my book as historical romance.

Thanks for stopping by and entering!

The answer is SPIRIT OF THE MOUNTAIN. It sounds like a good read.

Thanks Robin,

I'm anxious to get my release date for it.

I don't mind if an author skips around in genre. I think it's good for the author to spread his/her wings and it gives me a chance to read another genre by my favorite author.

I'm a BIG paranormal fan but an author I like, who writes paranormal books, also writes western romances by another name. Yup, I'm on book 2 of her western series right now and I'm enjoying it!

Hello Paty,

It doesn't bother me for an author to skip around with different genres. However, I do have a preference for contemporary books and I read a bunch of historical books, too. For the paranormal genre, it really depends on the storyline and author.

Trivia answer - Spirit of the Mountain.

Blogger Paty Jager said...


I'm glad you like to read other genres from the same author. I like seeing what authors can do in other genres as well.

Jennifer, thanks for commenting and entering the contest.

I read this one author who writes under three different names that I read and I love all of them. I think it's great when they try different genres. If I like a author I will try anything that they write at least once.

Hi, Paty!

I hadn't seen your cover for SPIRIT OF THE MOUNTAIN. It's beautiful!

It doesn't bother me when authors write in different subgenres. The covers and back cover blurbs usually make it pretty clear what the book is about--and a peek inside or an excerpt online confirm the genre.

Good to talk to you here!

Blogger Debra St. John said...

If I find an author I like, I'm willing to stick with him/her even if the genre of each book changes. I kind of skip around and get into certain niches in my reading. I'll read contemporary for a while, then historicals, and even some paranormal. Basically, if I have a book in hand, I am a happy camper!

8:12 PM  
Blogger Paty Jager said...

Sherry, that seems to be the norm. I'm glad to hear it.;)

8:37 PM  
Blogger Paty Jager said...

Genene, I'm glad you like the cover and it's good to see/talk with you here. I love the cover! Can't wait to get all my promo together.

8:38 PM  
Blogger Paty Jager said...

Debra, I'm the same way, if I like an author I usually like them no matter what the genre.

I don't mind author changing as long as they stay true to themselves.

answer: Spirit of the mountain

Thanks for stopping by, Host.

Hi, Paty! I tend to enjoy it when an author genre jumps, unless they are SO radically different that I need to be forewarned. It's neat to see how her voice/style can change from genre to genre.

And Spirit of the Mountain is the cover that features a wolf :)

Hi Paty I love your work!

the answer is

The cover of "Spirit of the Mountain" features a wolf

Spirit of The Mountain has a wolf on the cover.
I like most genre. I read a lot of historical and suspense. Lately I've been adding paranormal.

The cover that features a wolf is Spirit of the Mountain.

And to answer your question, if one of my favourites authors started writing other genres, I wouldn't have a problem because I don't read books based on the author. I read books based on the story. I'm not a big fan of historicals, so if they started writing that, it's very probable that I wouldn't read the book.

Forgot to answer the first part of your questions. It doesn't bother me if an author writes in different genres as long as they do it well. There are quite a few who do a good job in contemporary, historical and paranormal.
A wolf is on the cover of Spirit of The Mountain.

Spirit of the Mountain! :)

Usually it doesn't bother me if an author jumps genres; a good book's a good book. I have to admit to having paranormal leanings, though. ;)
