So…I’ll be without internet for a few days. Stinks for me. But for you, it’s a golden opportunity to be a winner. Why?
Because you have a couple more days to comment and win Eric Trant’s novel, WINK. WINK is a supernatural thriller that sounds like it might have psychological elements as well. Which brings me to my next bit of information.
How many times have you wondered where a book fits, genre-wise? I mean, what’s the difference between thriller and suspense? Suspense and mystery? Steampunk vs. dystopian? What’s the line between upper Middle Grade and Young Adult?
Honestly, it can be confusing. But it’s important to know where your book fits. It helps you pitch your book to an agent. It helps the agent sell your book to a publisher. And it definitely helps the publisher get your book in the hands of the target audience of readers.
So when I ran across this Genre Map, courtesy of Book Country (A Penguin Community), I was thrilled.
Of course, there’s a big difference between being thrilled and thrillers like WINK. And thanks to that nifty map, I’ve got it all figured out.
Cathy–That map is way cool. Thanks for the link. (And I’m sorry you’re without the internet. Hopefully you’ll be connected again very soon.)
Bookmarked. Thank you! You always find us the coolest stuff. 🙂
Glad it helped–it sure cleared up a few questions I had!
