Write what you want but realize that if you write a book that has a very limited demographic-- a zoology textbook, for example-- that you're not going to get many Kindle sales. In fact, publishers determine how best to market your book based on the demographic.

Congratulations to all the A to Z-ers! I have the Linky List on my sidebar and plan to continue my blog visits following down the list. I've found some amazing new bloggers this month. This has been a fantastic Challenge this year. I have loved participating and being part of the hosting team.
And don't forget May 7, when we can all write a post reflecting about our experiences with the Challenge.
