I was thinking today about books (when I was supposed to be listening intently to a speak at my conference) and the ones I wanted to read. That led into how I needed to check off books on the notebook/list I carry in my purse. This led into what a bad idea that would be, because I probably would just add more in, and its already ridiculous.
One thing led to another, and I wondered, paranormal and urban fantasy and such are big right now. Mermaids are popping up all over. So what do readers want to see next? Are they ready for something new? Historicals? High fantasy? Hard scifi?
So, readers, what are you looking for? What do you love best and want to see more of, and what are you ready to lock in the basement?
In the same vein, what about authors? I have a couple of authors that I follow every book they bring out. Lately, I’ve realized that with one of them, I just don’t care for her new books. I keep trying, but I don’t like the world she’s created enough to keep reading and keep caring. Does anyone else do this and have the same problem?
