Wendy asked Liane Moriarty:

Hi Liane. What are some of the criteria you use to decide on the next topic for a book? Thanks for the answer.

Liane Moriarty My main criteria is whether I keep thinking about it, and wondering about it, and thinking it would be fun to write. Oh, and also I study the faces of people when I mention my new book idea. If they look intrigued I know I've got a winner, If they look sort of politely interested I know I've got to keep thinking
