Just wondering, you have mentioned that you should read the best there is in the genre you want to write. What are your suggestions for that?
I probably did say that. What I mean is...if you want to write well, you should read very good writing. When I wrote and sold my first adult urban fantasy series, I'd never read an urban fantasy. But I was reading really great contemporary literary fiction. Jennifer Egan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Carolyn Parkhurst, Matt Haig. Lots of others. People who are playing with structure and story and writing economically.
