How important are genres and mixed genres in this day to publishing in today's market? What do you look for when you’re picking a book to read?
I have posted books to this site that are a sci-fi, paranormal suspense romance with a touch of fantasy. Would you buy this book?
How many genres are there today?Nonfiction books
Erotica Novels - LGTB
Romance Novels- sweet, suspense, western, historical
Thriller Novels– legal, medical
Literature and Fiction
Help me out here. I copied the first list of genres down to short stories from Predators and Editors. Then I checked Amazon’s list and added the next four. I looked at the list and added the next four I thought were missing.
Then I went back and started to add sub-genres. I’m finding it a little overwhelming. As I’ve said previously, my books are romantic suspense, but contemporary western romantic suspense, with a touch of paranormal.
So, what genres am I missing? What about sub-genres?
