dragons coming out of the woodwork

Last year, I got excited about an idea I'd had spinning in my head for some time, revolving around a dragon coming to this world, turning into a sexy human, and falling in love with a heroine. I mulled plot ideas for a long time, at last wrote a proposal, sent it to my agent, and sold it to Berkley a couple months ago.

Now, all the sudden, dragons are everywhere! Gena Showalter just came out with a dragon book. Of course, Katie Mac's series, and now Sherrilyn Kenyon's latest book revolves around a dragonslayer.

I swear I had no idea any of these writers had planned these books!. Weird how so many people can have the same idea at the same time. I held back writing mine a long time, because I thought, a dragon? No one will go for that!

LOL. I sold it, I'm writing it, it's coming out sometime next year from Berkley Sensation. More details as I go. Now I must read everyone's dragon books to 1. entertain myself; 2. make sure I'm not writing the same thing (don't think so, from the blurbs; I think mine's quite different).

Am writing a paranormal historical for Dorchester at the same time. This should be interesting.

Don't you just HATE when someone comes up with an idea that you had, and theirs came out first??? I just read a book that has something funny in it, that's similar to something very funny in my book. I don't want to change mine because it's really something humorous that happens to the hero. But I am NOT happy about this at all. :P
