A couple years ago EVERYONE was writing YA - and some of it was pretty close to erotica. (Well, 50 Shades was Twilight fan fiction - which was YA - so it’s easy to get confused.)

That’s when I gave up using the genre label Romance and YA for my stuff. I don’t write the hot stuff - so I started working on my Mom’s short stories and I’m still waiting for the market to cool off.

I don’t think I’m the only person who is scratching her head, either. lol

Its so hard to do these days. I find that its always just a case of being in the right thread at the right time to find books and authors that cater to your tastes. Its a great feeling when you find something though!

What does everyone like to read?

I liked the books for Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Longmire. I read the Washington Post everyday, which is starting to feel like a bad habit that I need to break.

There was a Sci-Fi that I read here that I liked too, ‘A Starship called Starsong.’

But for some reason I don’t read as much as I used to. I think it’s because I spend too much time at the laptop, trying to write.

If I’m being honest, I’ll read anything, or at least give it a go. Though I’m not keen on like vampire and werewolf stories. Mostly just cause vampires genuinely scare the heck out of me haha


#105

Old style Horror Vampires and Werewolves?


#106

Yeah! Before they got all sexied up haha


#107

We are here, and I’ve read some good stuff from older writers on here. I tend to check out the profiles first.


#108

Annoying, isn’t it. Llamas are oddly addictive.


#109

I still don’t get the function of them or why people send me them :joy:


#110

Llamas?

Is there something I should know? I’m an alpaca, but if it’s bad to be a llama I can become the World’s Cutest Dog In A Hat. Or a big huge horse.

No, wait, I can do better. Equine Cheesecake!

My one published novel is post-sexied-up. Our vampire hero is sad because he’s too neurotic to get laid.


#113

I’m wondering how that works XD


#114

Even he doesn’t know. Some random drifter infected him a decade earlier so he’s still figuring out the whole vampire thing. If he can maintain his facade as a functional adult without killing anyone, he feels like he’s done well.

If you’re curious, Amazon up “The Silver Option” by Elizabeth Lasky. Also in bookstores.


#115

Ooh I’ll do that.


#116

Just checked it out, you don’t seem to have a Kindle edition.


#117

Correct. That was the publisher’s decision. It may come out on Kindle in a few months, but right now they’re focusing on print, with distribution in multiple countries.


#118

Ah, shame. I only purchase on Kindle.

PM me your email address.

Ha, I should get you to check out my werewolf books. I got tired of the moongoddess tropes, and had to go write my own werewolf books.
