I have always loved Classic Fiction. By this, I don't mean Austen. I read Jekyll and Hyde and was so blown away by the rich vocabulary and gripping originality that I went on to read Frankenstein (now my favourite book) and the Alice Adventures, and I am now torn between The Time Machine and Gulliver's Travels (I tried Dracula, and failed miserably). My point is, do people, in the modern era, really appreciate this sort of writing? Because this is basically my writing style. I've started writing, what I believe to be, a fairly original horror set in the late 1800s. Many people have shown fascination in the plot but is there any point if the general consensus is that publishers, probably, will only sell what makes big bucks, rather than releasing original and maybe provocative? (In the sense that it's not of the Stephanie Meyer calibre: business woman, not artist) If you want to know what the story actually is, then I'll explain and you can judge for yourself. Otherwise, you can probably guess, mid Victorian horror.
