For the past year and a half, I've been submitting a historical romance. While it garnered a few requests, it has also garnered its share of rejections. The last rejection was filled with good advice and an invitation to resubmit.
I think I'm going in a new direction though.
My other manuscripts are contemporary romances. If an agent sells my historical, there's a good chance I'll be expected to continue writing historicals. Right now my heart is with contemporaries.
Thus, the historical is done making the agent rounds. One of my contemporaries is ready to be queried and I think that will be my new direction.
Which direction are you headed in? What's your favorite genre to read? Do you realize that you may expected to continue writing whatever you first submit?
