Really? No One Wants Vampires?

This was essentially one response I received earlier this fall. Too many vampire books on the market, and they just didn’t think they’d find a place for mine.

That is just … frustrating to be honest. I can’t go into a bookstore without finding yet another release of a vampire-related book. Let’s not even get into the latest fare of vampire-related TV shows and movies. I listen to people around me talk about the cycle of vampires, and how its going down, but I don’t see that. Hell, even Vampire: the Masquerade is getting a resurgence.

You might feel that there are too many vampire books on the market, but don’t tell me that publishers aren’t buying them and churning them out. No, better feedback is needed. Publishers are churning out the material, so don’t tell me there is not a market. Instead either tell me you’re trying to get out/not wanting to get into the vampire story market or tell me what it is about my story that makes you think it doesn’t work for the market.

But don’t feed me a line. I’m writing to agents, not spin alley.
