“I want to write a new book. What’s trending now in the bookselling world?”

Q –

Hello Angela,

I can write anything (fiction, non-fiction, business reports, resumes…) but I really am in this business to earn a living. I like writing but I really like making dough. I want to write books above all else but I never know what the next trend is going to be. Is there an easy way to find out what’s trending now in book sales, or what will be trending next year?


A –

The problem is that what’s trending right now might not be trending by the time you finish your next book. However, it’s easy to see what’s “trending” right now by looking at the following best-seller lists:


The New York Times

Barnes and Noble

USA Today

Publisher’s Weekly

And, Wikipedia has a great page featuring the best selling books of all time. If you can write a best seller that becomes a classic, you’ll have it made. 😉

The Art and Craft of Writing and Editing

Writing is a constant dialogue between author and reader.

The craft of writing involves an interchange of emotions between an author and a reader. An author creates a story line, conflict, and characters, gives his characters words to speak, and then hands off these materials to a reader. This process results in a constant dialogue between the mental imagery produced by a reader and that proposed by the author.
