What is your favourite genre? Do you prefer a happy ending or a sad one? A male or female protagonist? Tell me all about your favourite book- why do you like it?

Also, if you want to buy my short story (only book not under a pseudonym!) it's May is Mine, (Emily Thomas) and can be bought through Amazon. Both Kindle edition and paperback are available today/

- Thriller, Adventure, or science fiction.

- A mix of both.

- Does not really matter.

-Do not have one, but I usually like books that keep me on my feet, have plot twists, and great character development.

I would love to someday write a book, but my favourite genre is crime. I haven't got the time to write one yet, but hopefully one day I will make time. Anyway, I always think it is best to end it on a cliffhanger, regardless of how happy or sad it will be. I wish you all the best of luck.

I hope you get to write one! My books are all published under a pseudonym, as I wrote for love of writing, not for fame.
I have an idea for a crime series, but it has an underlay of romance. Would that be a problem for crime readers, do you think?
I agree, cliffhangers are good!

Could you tell us what your pseudonym is so that we can check your books out? :rolleyes:

I would love to, but it's a pseudonym for a reason!!!!
I tell you what, once I've written the first book of my next series, I will post an anonymous message that says only my pseudonym, no other context. That way, if you notice it, great, if not, also fine. And if people see it, they will either know its from here, or they won't have a clue, and might just look it up. That way my identity (sort of) remains a secret.

Every reader is different, so obviously I can't talk for everyone when I say that romance can help a crime series, but not on every occasion. I hope to read one of your books one day, I'm sure they would be interesting.

Who knows maybe you'll become the next J.K Rowling, she wrote under a pseudonym when she penned The Cuckoo's Calling.

Yes, Robert Galbraith I believe. A good role model of mine actually. (Not that everything she says is good!) I also like Frances Hardinge, and Sarah J Maas, have you heard of those two?

To be honest, I'm not much of a reader, I find reading books boring, which is weird because I love writing. That doesn't make a lot of sense I know, but that's just who I am. Those two other authors you mentioned, I have never heard about. But, I have heard of Stephen Fry and Stephen King.

They aren't exceedingly well known, but I adore their books!

I too, have heard of Stephen King, he's a very talented person, but I do wonder what goes on in his head to write such twisted horrors. But then, that is true of any horror novelist. Stephen Fry, I believe I know but cannot place where from.

Believe me when I say, you'd soon change your thought about what goes on in King's mind, if you heard my crime stories, they're a little twisted. Fry is more of an actor than a writer, here is the link to his Wiki page: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry

I did used to publish them on a website called Wikia, which has since fallen in popularity. I use a website and an app called Wattpad, where other writers could give you advise and compliments.
