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.
