Be honest. How many voodoo dolls have you mutilated in your quest to become the next Laurell K. Hamilton or Sherrilyn Kenyon?
- 0-9: You're probably too virtuous to ever get published.
- 10-19: Equivalent of the New Year's resolution of voodoo…fizzles in week 2.
- 20-29: You've won NaNoWriMo once or twice and wear lucky writing socks.
- 30+: Now, we're talking.
In all seriousness, urban fantasy has emerged as one of the strongest and most competitive categories in publishing, building on the momentum of legends like Anne Rice and expanding to embrace all kinds of sub-genres such as YA, satire, and romance.
But for all its badass convention-breaking, urban fantasy also a genre boobytrapped with the worst pitfalls of all the genres it borrows from.
If we're not overdoing the Mickey Spillane-esque hard-boiled grit, we're confusing which supernatural creature has which power. Or, we're creating characters that are so wrapped up in their love lives with , they almost miss the climactic battle between good and evil happening a couple blocks over.
Fear not! Strap on your vampire-hunting gear, grab your wolfsbane gris-gris, and don't forget to bring your sarcastic sidekick to this class where I will help you navigate the mean streets and treacherous back alleys of urban fantasy!
