  1. I REALLY wish someone would get the word out to writers that a LOT of people (myself certainly included) quite often will pass by a book that has “Book 1″ or “Part 1″ or “in the series” etc. as part of its title because we’re really tired of so many authors apparently believing the only way to “make it” as a writer is to “hook” readers into a series. Write the first one and see how many of its readers say they want more more more! Go ahead and write a dozen in a series…put it in the description of the book that you’ve done so, but STOP shoving it down our throat about how prolific you are!

    Yeah, Stephanie Plum, Kinsey Milhone, and all the other serial heroes and heroines made their creators a lot of money….but the average writer isn’t going to get a huge following right out of the starting gate. Give the reader a chance to give YOU a chance. The majority of us are smart enough to figure out how to let you know if we like it and want more (or hate it and don’t).

    Ouch.

  2. Halloween is almost over. Whew! Away with zombie books; bring on Norman Rockwell sentimental Christmas fare.

    How about real books? And get those short stories into their own class.

    And I agree about “part 1″ books. Hardly give them a second glance.

    • I think I know why all the ‘zombie’ books suddenly. In a personal email from an agent query recently (which was one of those rare ones in which they compliment your writing abilities and request other material from you instead of the usual “doesn’t fit our needs at this time” or “thanks for the query, don’t call us we’ll call you” cut and paste replies) I was asked if I had “any zombie books? Why? “Cuz zombies are really hot right now.” Obviously, someone told some fast-writing folks that same thing and they’re all trying to ride the wave while they’re hot. That’s ok, I’ll wait for another wave. I didn’t mind missing the vampire one either. Surely my wave is coming. *puts on sunglasses and squints out towards the horizon*
