I don't even think you need to be that original, but something has to stand out. Either your story or the quality of your writing. Something to hook us up to turn the next page. The same is true about murder - mysteries. For how long they've been around? Yet, there's a shit load of the new stuff breaking into Amazon best selling list all the time. The point is to write and craft your art through doing it. People will recognize the quality and will want to read whatever you want to say next.
