I considered writing a romance novel and publishing it on Amazon for a few bucks, because their storylines are fairly simple, and you ultimately know what the reader is in the book for: they want to fall in love with the characters.
Here is my idea: Benjamin and Farren have been married for 6 years, and it seems as if every year is getting more difficult. Farren is growing more and more distant, while Ben is trying to care for their 1 year old daughter April/the home/their marriage at the same time.
Jeremy is a socially-awkward nobody people mistake as an asshole, when a newcomer stops for a visit off of a cargo train. Ginger's brown hair and grey-blue eyes intrigue him, and his lack of social suavity makes her laugh. Sparks fly, and Jeremy is determined to make a home for her. Ginger refuses.
However, following her through the train schedule, he finally catches up to her... as she is being scolded by her husband for running away from home. Ginger and Farren are actually the same person.
The center of the story is the concept, anyone can appear perfect from a distance, and nice guys only finish last if they let themselves. I have not determined an ending yet.
I'm just trying to create something to generate some revenue on the side. If you have an ideas for how to make it better that I can use, please let me know.
