Anyone worried about that title?
IWSG Question of the Day: Of all the genres you read and write, which is your favorite to write in and why?
At the moment, with so much focus on the series I’m writing, science fantasy is my home. And thinking about other projects I have in progress or in planning… yeah, I seem to like it a lot. I tried my hand at cyberpunk once because it’s always had a special place in my heart to read, but it still ended up with fantasy elements (it was also really bad so it’ll never see the light of day).
It doesn’t mean I don’t read outside of it. I still love my sci-fi and other fantasy sub genres. Though paranormal romance can confuse me depending on how it’s written. I think that has something to do with romance itself being this weird entity that I occasionally poke with a stick.
Every time I open up the Kindle app, I’m greeted with a number of choices spanning many genres. What I gravitate toward first tends to be if they’re local or if I know them over the genre. And let’s not talk about the piles of physical books…

I remember being unenthusiastic and hyper critical about one of the paranormal romances I beta-read. I realized, I seem to have a problem with that genre. Christine Feehan books pop up first when I google that genre, and I recall her books setting my teeth on edge. So you’re not alone!
Maybe neither of us has found the right one to read. The last one I read came close, but there was definitely still a disconnect from the fantasy side and the romance.
I genre hop myself, but everything I read and write seems to have some aspect of love to it. Scifi and fantasy are particular favorites as well. I look forward to reading more from you. Happy Writing!
Thanks! I tend to have some kind of romantic relationship thing going when I write, but it’s always secondary.
