Hi all. I just posted a thread in the book discussion forum about R.L. Stine. I write horror novels and am trying to break in to that, but I was introduced to my love for reading with Goosebumps/Animorphs. I was thinking that as a sort of homage, at some point in my career I'd like to try my own hand at a horror series for children. Reading some interviews, I saw that R.L. Stine used to write a book a month, so I think maybe if I spent a year or so dedicated to the cause I could have a good sample of a potential series to send off to agents. Ultimately, I want to be the next Stephen King (and write horror for adults with complex characters, in-depth terror, etc, etc), but this kind of writing also allows for short and fun stories and if I can attribute to kids finding a love to reading like Stine did for me, I think it would be worth it. For example, a random idea I have is a kid who's being picked on a lot at school (cliche, right? haha) and when he gets fed up he ventures into the haunted forest that everyone talks about in hopes of being turned into a werewolf or something so that he can finally have the upperhand. But, instead, he's bitten by a wererabbit and everything just goes wrong from there. Not something I'd spend the time writing a full book on, or even a 'serious' short story, but I think kids could appreciate it. My question is: is there a market for this, you think? I ask because it doesn't seem like there are many Goosebump-like series that have been done well. For example, Harry Potter has done extremely well but there are definitely other authors who have found a lot of success writing books about wizardry. Or am I just out of the loop?
