Episode 11: I Read Somewhere That

What do the readers love? I bring you some of the most popular book genres in 2021. But does writing in popular genres actually matters that much? Should you follow trends? Should you write children’s books, romance, horror or inspirational books? Plus, how to be a successful, popular author and are people sick of reading about death? Should we all be trying to write the next Ted Lasso? Do you have emotional maturity? Do you have radical empathy? Can therapy and meditation help you become a better writer?
