As I’ve written before, I’m all in on Amazon’s Kindle Vella platform for my writing. I’ve loved writing my family stories, but as my Andie Schubert Cozy Mystery series came to an end, I was looking for something else to write.
Digging through the manuscripts on my hard drive, I came across a women’s fiction novel that I’d started a few years ago, called It’s My Life. I was close to publishing it last March, but when Amazon opened Kindle Vella for authors to start posting stories, I thought it would be a great place for It’s My Life.
I soon discovered that Kindle Vella didn’t have a category for women’s fiction (they still don’t for some reason), so I set it aside and published my cozy mystery and family stories.
When I came back across it, though, I saw it through fresh eyes. I’d been publishing on Kindle Vella for nearly a year so I understood better how the platform worked. I knew that It’s My Life could easily be reworked for a clean romance for the site.
After toning down the women’s fiction aspects, I played up the romance angles, and added more tension between the main characters–Jenna, Paul, Drew, and Tanya.

What’s Up With The Title?
I also changed the title to Let Your Loving Live. You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to come up with original romance titles! Well maybe you would. Anyway, the ones I thought fit the story were already taken, so I looked in a different place.
There’s a line from a song I like with the words, Let Your Loving Live, and I thought it fit my story perfectly :).
