Goodreads asked Elle Charles:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Elle Charles Write for yourself.

A lot of authors write for the market that sells, whilst I see the logic in this, I believe that if you deviate away from the genre you specialise in, you are selling yourself short. Your work might not appeal to everyone, but you will have greater satisfaction knowing you are staying true to yourself.

If you have a good, well presented and polished product, regardless of which market it is aimed at, eventually it will sell itself.
