I'll admit it. I pay attention to trends in books. I don't write to them, I'm a firm believer in going where the story takes you. But when one specific genre crowds the bookshelves (physical and virtual) it's hard not to take notice.
One thing I have noticed is that vampires, once only a few years ago the dominant force in bookstores, seem to be fading back in the background. Like most things, I think phases like this are cyclical. Their time will swing back around.
What do you think? Do you agree vampires have had their moment and it's time for some other hot ticket to take their place? If so, what?
