I need to know...
I've heard from a very reliable person, well actually several reliable people, if you want to know what publishers are buying in your genre go to the bookstore. This is a very dangerous place for me since I always go over budget.
Okay sorry I got off topic for a minute. Anyway, my new WIP is women's fiction and I've been good and done my homework. Everything I've read in that genre is 1st person.
I'm in trouble. I've always written my stories in 3rd person. I've never really cared for stories in the 1st person. However, since I've been reading women's fiction I've actually enjoyed it. But now I need to decide--Do I go back to page one and convert to the 1st person? Or write how I've always done.
What are you thoughts? Do you think I should go with what the industry seems to be looking for? Or go with what I'm familiar with?
