Anonymous said: I'm worried my writing is too much of the same. All of my stories are murder mysteries. do you think this'll put readers off?
If your readers love your books because they’re murder mysteries, then carry on! When you write the same genre, your readers know what they’re getting at least :) like Philippa Gregory - she writes historical fiction. Sarah Dessen - teenage books with romance and different issues dealt with. John Green - books that will rip your heart out and stamp on it in high heels but you fall in love with them anyway.
As long as all your murder mysteries don’t follow the exact same pattern and have the same twist in them, then keep writing them if that’s what you love to write! Just remember to try and make each one unique in its own way. Maybe you add a romantic side-plot into one, or if your protagonists in each story are similar, make them different ages/genders/give them different personalities. Or, if your stories all use the same protagonist and are part of a series, remember to make each story interesting enough that your readers can’t predict what’s going to happen too early on in the book :)
Hope that’s helped! xo
