Meet the Editors Podcast Debut – Book of Your Heart vs Book to Sell
Editors tell you to write the “story of your heart,” a tale you are inspired to tell. And then you see that all they are buying are books about vampires. How does the aspiring author resolve what to write? Does she write what’s hot? How does she know what’s hot? When does what’s “hot” suddenly cool to nothingness? Is it worth taking years to write the book of “your heart” when it does not fit into any romance category or anywhere in the bookstore. Can editors tell that you are writing to a market trend?
How do you combine commercial viability with sincere storytelling? Editors Allison Lyons and Kathryn Lye provide tips on following trends versus a story you are passionate about writing in today’s podcast, Book of Your Heart vs. Book to Sell.
