You've got to think of this from the reader's perspective. READERS NEED BOOKS. They're desperate for them. And no writer in the world can keep up with the demands of readers. No one. I used to read a book a day. I can't write that fast. So don't think your books won't be wanted. It's impossible.
Also... fun fact: It's WAY better to write your own books than to read someone else's. So, focus. Start thinking of your own twist. Even if there's an idea that's similar to yours don't worry about it. No one will tell the story like you will. And if I was worried about all the other books out there that were similar to mine, I would've never written. I wrote fairy tales the way they should've been written. :) Fairy tales. You know where hundreds of other authors are telling the same story--with their own spin. Just jump in there and tell yours. It's worth it. I promise. (less)
Jenni James Actually, I don't have this one on my list... We'll see. :) Didn't you love the new Disney movies? Gah.

I LOVED writing this book! I couldn't believe how many times I laughed while working on it. Lord Atten is amazing. And I love Charity Waite too.

The best way to deal with a family feud? Fall in love with the enemy, of course!

Thank you! Hope you love

Teazia Cockburn Hi, I'm currently reading Northanger Alibi, and can I just say I am loving it, but, just one thing I have to ask - why are you being so mean to Jacob Black with the character Jaden. Not that I'm 'Team Jacob', I'm "Team Edward for Bella so that Jacob is left for me!" But so far good book, just don't be mean to Jacob in the future, he is absolutely wonderful!
