There have been blockbuster, best-selling novels for decades, but the franchise that has grossed the most money is the Harry Potter series. It is known around the world.
Most writers would love to have their series or stand alone novels soar as this series did–and continues to do.
Genre fiction (horror, fantasy, and sci-fi) seems to have gained in popularity the last decade or so, i.e. the Twilight series, Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood), The Hunger Games, Marvel comic superhero movies, etc.
I am enjoying it all because I love these genres.
So, what do you guys think–what do you think will be the next big thing?
