I’ve posted a great deal on this blog about writing advice I’ve managed to learn from all quarters of publishing, writers, and at romance writing conferences.
These are just some of the pearls of wisdom I’ve heard imparted.
But the single best piece of advice I ever heard came to me, not from a romance conference, or even a romance writer, but an editor who presented at a Writer’s Digest conference I attended in 2014.
She said, “Write the book of your heart. Don’t write to trends. Today’s million seller vampire trilogy will morph into tomorrow’s spy/espionage bestseller and then an historical tome on war. Just write the book you’ve always dreamed of writing. The one you want to read but have never found on any bookshelf or by any author. Write THAT book and make it your own.”
Lovelovelove that advice!!!!

That’s excellent advice and advice that I follow up to and including violation of reader expectations, which never goes well. At least not in my experience.
