Usually I write the books that I want to read, but there are a few things that I'd like to see in my future reads...
A YA heroine that I don't want to punch in the teeth.
Most YA heroines get on my damn nerves. Don't you agree?
More books with talking animals.
I'm a fantasy lover, so talking animals is right up my alley. That's why I love the Iron Druid Chronicles. There's a talking hellhound and he's HILARIOUS!
More books with dragons in modern times.
I love dragons, but all the books I read always take place in some sort of historical setting. I'd love to read a book with a dragon in New York City, using skyscrapers as its own personal perches *LOL*
More fantasy books with black heroes/heroines.
Though I definitely have a fantasy series in the works with an all-black cast, I'd like to see other authors take that on as well.
A book that takes place inside a video game.
I'm sure a book like this already exists. Any suggestions?
More romance series featuring aliens.
It's going to be hard to follow JLA's Lux series, but I can't wait to see someone try.
No more Greek myth books about Persephone and Medusa.
There are hundreds of Greek myths, yet everyone wants to write about Persephone, who BTW, is one of the most uninteresting characters in all the myths. Medusa is awesome, but she's played out now. Move on, people! There's other myths. Believe me, I know.
More cyberpunk romances.
I read one called Hot Redemption by K.D. Penn and I'm definitely a fan now. I could read a few more of these!
Erotica with strong plots.
Thanks to Eden Baylee, I'm a big fan of Erotica. But most of the time there's just sex with no plot. I think a lot more readers would be okay with these sex-heavy books if there was more to the story.
A lot of authors are attempting to take this genre on, but they aren't doing a very good job of it. My one favorite is A.W. Exley, but I haven't read too many others that I've enjoyed. I just need one good Steampunk book to blow my mind. Just one!
