It’s the age-old quandary.
An author client of mine is deep into his first book. Or rather what could be three books, according to his editor.
He asked what book should he start with?
My reply: What topic are you most passionate about?
His reply: Well, I love topic A. But topic B is more commercial. I think it will sell better.
But, I asked, will you enjoy writing it? I don’t know about you, but if I’m not really into something, I get bored and it’s really a chore. And if I hate it, I really suck at it.
I’ll be curious to see which book he writes first.
What would you do?
