Yesterday I wrote about Biblical novels, what about any historical novel. Very similar.
Writing a Bible-based novel can be successful or risky. But if you use these simple guidelines you should be able to appeal to a large audience.
There are probably a number of descriptions of what Writer’s Block is but I’m going to keep it general. Because where you are writing books, blogs, or anything else writer’s block can occur. And there are many causes and helps. But I am zooming in on taking a break.

New writers are often advised to write a series. The argument is you have a better marketing opportunity. If a reader likes one, he/she will likely buy the others. Is it true?
The real question is Am I able to Write in Multiple Genres?
Ultimately it is your audience that determines the answer to that. However, it is possible that you could end up with a different audience for each genre. In fact, I’d say that is likely that your audiences will change from genre to genre.
Breaking into a new genre (for you) can also be tough. In my case, my primary focus is writing good fiction no matter what the genre. Getting people to like my books is more a matter of marketing than anything else.

I believe that every reader comes to our books with a tool available for us to use. It’s called their imagination. Think about it. Even if you are only eighteen you have had experiences, learned knowledge, and gotten acquainted with others. All of this impacts your imagination. So our job as authors is to tap into that imagination wherever possible and however we are able.
