And, so that there's no doubt, none of my books are literary fiction. That's not to say I couldn't write some literary fiction if I wanted to, but I don't want to. For one, I don't particularly like literary fiction - it's too serious. For two, it's a slog to read and write. For three, it doesn't sell because it's not popular or genre fiction, and these are what most people like. For four, life's too short to sweat over a work of art that not many people will read. I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm not going to win the Pullitzer Prize, or the Nobel Prize for Literature - I think I can live with that omission from my CV. Here's a website that explains what Literary Fiction is: Write Anything.
So, I suppose I'm a philistine! And I know some people read those literary books to say that they've read them. I'm probably the first person to not read them to say I've not read them! I better just get back to writing my old mass market penny dreadfuls!
