Mangled Manuscript Monday
I got the sad news today. My favorite genre, urban fantasy is dead.
How can this be? I read and write nothing else. I didn’t even know it was ailing.
But there it is for all to see. Kristin Nelson of Nelson Literary says editors and agents have reached the saturation point of UF submissions. She recommends epic fantasy as next big-time seller.
Well yeah. If only I had one tucked away in my Word docs I’d submit it…hm, there is the 5000 word Epic that I started three years ago. It was background noise for the URBAN FANTASY I WROTE.
*shakes self* Pardon. I got lost in the rejection heap of ‘what ifs’.
By the time I finish the Epic, maybe Urban will come back to life.
Or then again, maybe I’ll change the genre to ‘Speculative Fiction’ and call it new.
