Welcome to Bookish Blatherings, a Bad Bird Reads feature where I ramble about bookish or bloggerish things and hopefully you will join in on the discussion.
As some of you know, I’m a writer. I have a few short stories published, one book self-published that I co-wrote with someone else, and another one I have been sitting on for 3 years because it’s my baby and it is never good enough. I changed my name for the book I published because I wanted my blog and writing to be in different worlds. Writing is a hobby for me at this time. I was thinking about my ‘book baby’ (the unpublished one) today. It’s THE book I wanted to write since I became a reader. It’s THE book I wanted to write to make THE perfect book for me. The kind of book that is so me in every way. My ideal genre, characters, and so on.
My book baby is an urban fantasy and has a lot of supernaturals in it: vampires, werewolves, fae, shapeshifters, and a supernatural race I created. It’s dark and the main character is definitely not perfect. She was a ‘bad guy’ at one time but is learning to be good. And there is humor, lots of weird humor. More for a new adult/adult audience.
As I was pondering my book, I was wondering if any of you ever wanted to write a book (or if you actually have). And even if you never plan to write a book, what would your perfect book be about? Would it be paranormal, contemporary, romance, erotica, or young adult? What would the main character be like? Would it be serious or funny? The list is endless. I want to know…
If you were going to write a book to fit your reading prefernces perfectly, what kind of book would you write and what would it be about?
