How much spice do you need in your story?

The Family You Choose is coming out at the end of the month, and I'm taking a lot more risks with this story than I did with The Smartest Girl in the Room. When you think about the characters, this makes sense: Emily wants to protect herself and those she loves at all costs, whereas Miranda is willing to be vulnerable.

There is more sexual content in The Family You Choose, but none of it is graphic. That works for my characters and their story, but maybe not for others.

For more of my thoughts on the matter, please read on.
