Okay, maybe that isn't entirely true. I'm fairly sure I'm not a vampire, FBI Agent, ghost hunter, Sidhe-seer or Anne Boleyn.
Although, being any one of those things would be wicked cool . . . except for maybe Anne Boleyn. Definitely not a Happily Ever After for that one.
I guess as you can see, I have a tendency to be a little over the map when it comes to my reading (though I will give a definitive edge to paranormal/urban fantasy), but I prefer it that way. I know some people, however, are diehards for one genre and one genre only.
Personally, I think the more widely you read, the better you can round out and strengthen your writing within your genre. For instance, I'm totally digging romantic suspense these days. And if it's romantic suspense with a fantasy element to it. Sign. Me. Up.
Those sub-genres had to get started somewhere, right?
But I can also see how, for some, it can be hard to pull yourself away from what you enjoy most to give others a try.
So, I'm curious to get an idea for what kind of reader you are. Do you like a little of everything? Do you like to stick to one (maybe two) genre only? Do you not typically read at all? (Promise I won't holler at you, but I may give some gentle nudging on this last one).
Anyway, after you leave your thoughts here, please swing over to the left and answer the poll. It'll help guide me when I select a story for February's Forever Endeavor Online Book Club selection.
Seriously, so glad you guys like the idea, and I can't wait to get it started. Yay for "low pressure" book clubs! :D
Confession: I'm totally not feeling Monday right now . . .
