Question: Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
Answer: I feel I really have to do both. My rule of thumb is to write what I love and know that it might not be a blockbuster if it's not a hot genre. If I'm writing strictly for the market, I still have to love the genre to write a compelling story. I wrote gay romances and BDSM for several years. I really enjoyed that and I love those books. So did my readers. But tastes change, and so has the market. There are some writers who have created series after series of characters they love, in genres that sell well and feed readers who can't wait for more. That notion is always in my sights...like most authors, I'd love to quit my day job!
