I’m a firm believer in writing what you love, not what you think will sell. For example, I write in two genres that have fallen out of favor with the big New York publishing houses…paranormal romance (PNR) and urban fantasy (UF).… Read the post

The standard advice given to writers is to brand yourself. Find a genre, and stick with it.
