Driving home from my lunch yesterday, I had an idea for an old book that I haven't given up on yet.... vague, I know but I'm still in the "must find out more info" stage. Selling a book is all about timing. I find I'm usually years ahead of a trend- which you would think would be good-but it's not. "No one's buying that" and when they are "buying that" my work has been seen by everyone all ready and turned down... But that doesn't mean a good story can't be remade.
My first published book- Saving Samantha - was written for a sweet line that went under the very month I submitted it. So I remade it as a sexy romance and submitted- but then no one wanted westerns-so, I put it away. Until Avalon announced it was looking for sweet historicals of any setting- so I pulled it back out- cut 250 pages-ouch- and sent it in- bingo! Sold. So, I'm always playing with my inventory. You just never know. Cheers!
