Sure, it may not sound like a barrel of laughs, but if you could create a new literary sub-genre, what would it be?
In my recent interview with the lovely Glynis, I pointed out that I'd like to write wine-lit. Set in vineyards, wine cellars, vats... following the character development of a grape. Here's a sample blurb:
For Grimskill Grape, life is one sun-drenched day after another, hanging out on his vine of choice and ripening robustly. But everything changes when Grimskill is suddenly plucked from his familiar world; his spirits crushed when he's rudely stamped on then thrust into a dark cave to ferment. Will Grimskill adjust to his new life and accept his role as part of the greater good, or will he struggle against decomposition -- and fate?
(Please do not take the above paragraph as indicative of my blurb writing skills, ha!)
