Soooo...yesterday Liz talked about trends.
What do I know about trends?
That's right. Nothing.
I don't follow trends. I like to write romantic suspense. I've tried to leave it out a few times, and when I do, I'm always trying to find a way to put it back in. A few years ago, no one put suspense in their books. Then the trend changed and it seemed like everyone was doing RS.
Then, a couple years ago, I started hearing from agents that they didn't want any suspense. That it wasn't selling. That they couldn't give it away. The trend had changed.
The most recent fashion has been vampires. And more vampires. Ever since the Twilight series, there has been a rush to publish vamp books. This trend will pass, too.
Angels? Truck drivers? Jockeys?
You can bet you bottom dollar that whatever the next big seller is, there will be a HUGE rush to follow.
But not by me. I'm going to keep writing suspense. Because sooner or later, that trend will come back. And I'll be ready!
