I came across an article via Twitter yesterday, about finding a literary agent. I don’t really know why I read it, but I found the passage below pretty interesting – the last dot point in particular:
When did this happen?? They haven’t even finished making the Fifty Shades movies yet, and already they don’t want anybody to send them books in that genre?
I remember only a few years ago you couldn’t escape cosy mysteries (Charlaine Harris!), and urban fantasy was supposed to be one of the Next Big Things (I mean, Patricia Briggs!).
I don’t really have a point here, other than to say I’m a bit surprised.
What’s really silly is that at this rate, whatever is “in” right now is likely to be out of fashion by the time an agent takes it on.
I wonder what will be “struggling” next.
