Hey, I've only got one manuscript under my belt and I'm waiting on responses from agents that may never actually arrive.

However, I, like most of you, have ideas for more than one novel. Usually, we'd try to stick to a series in the same world, but when did you decide to step out of that genre?


When did you decide you wanted to write a fresh, new story?

Well, I follow a bunch of YA writers on twitter, so, I think I have a much better grasp on the genre than suspense/thriller, actually.

And I've had an idea rolling around my head for a while and I'm starting to put the puzzle together in my head and on paper as I think more and more.


So, I was just wondering when or if anyone else hopped out of their first genre and how? What was it about? Why did you do it? How did it feel 'switching sports'?


These are just thoughts I've been having since I decided to write while shopping my thriller manuscript. I was just wondering if anyone else felt the same.
