Making the shift from writing in one genre to another...or from genre fiction to a traditional fiction category...can be daunting. As writers, we sometimes feel as if we are going to be stuck in the genre in which we started. Or we may think we'll never want to make a change.
In this episode, USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle and I have an insightful conversation about this topic, specifically how to make the shift from writing in one genre to another. She's done with her newest release The Shell Collector. I've done it, too, moving from cozy mysteries to the much broader fiction with mystery elements category.
One takeaway is to remember that you are never stuck doing just one thing. You have the power to make changes in your career and with the direction your writing takes.
Nancy also has had many of her books turned into Hallmark movies, a subject we touch on today, as well. I know you'll enjoy this conversation, so grab a cup of something tasty, settle in, and get ready to Ignite your WriterSpark!
