Is Romantic Suspense Dead?
First, I would like to mention how I also noticed how large the Erotica section is now. If you read some of the blurbs, you will realize that many of the Erotica books are also romantic suspense. I noticed because my last two books were placed under Erotica because they were released under Avon Red. My books are hot but not erotica. If you read them, you would agree. There is a difference between erotica and just good ol' hot books.
Anyway, general contemporary appears to be growing in popularity. I'm all for that. Historical Romance is going strong though I wish there were more Medieval (not Scottish) stories. I see more westerns. That makes me happy.
Oh, I lost track. Back to Romantic Suspense. No. I don't think it's dead, but it's time for it to change. I like to think my type of RS is ahead of its time. (Think James Bond adventures, not Criminal Minds gruesomeness.)
What type of genres/story-lines would you like to see more of?
