I know what I write.

...which is why this piece from Mandy Hubbard's blog struck a chord with me. (It also struck a chord for a few others reasons which I can't yet talk about, so how's that for cryptic?) It's so seductive to follow the publishing deals and start thinking "Crap! Should I be writing paranormal?" No. No, I should not. You know why? Because I don't really read paranormal, which means a. I'm not really a fan and b. I certainly don't know the market -- which are obviously two things I would need in order to write a smart, successful paranormal.

I'm a contemporary, realistic fiction sort of girl, and I am okay with that.

Sidebar: I've been meaning to pick up Mandy's Prada & Prejudice. Anyone out there have any thoughts on it?
