What’s playing on the iPod right now? JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH by Depeche Mode
So I had lunch with an editor from Random House who acquires for SF & F.
Her plea? No more vampires. Please. Every urban fantasy does not need to include them. Hum… where did I hear that refrain recently? Big smile.
She also expressed a longing for female heroines that aren’t killing machines. It’s okay to have a little vulnerability or emotional pull in the character.
I have to say I didn’t realize that the heartless woman assassin was a current trend but there you have it.
