Genre confuses writers, but everyone who buys, sells, or reads our books wants to know what genre we're writing in.
This mini book will demystify genre so we can better understanding what we're writing and who might want to read it. In Fiction Genres, you'll learn what qualities make a book one genre rather than another, and the smaller “genres” that fall under the larger umbrellas of fantasy, science fiction, horror, mystery, suspense, thriller, and romance. For each, you'll also see examples of published books or authors whose books exemplify the genre.
This mini-book is part of the Busy Writer's Guides series. The books in this series put writing craft techniques into plain language alongside examples so you can see how that technique looks in practice. In addition, you’ll receive tips and how-to exercises to help you apply what you learn to the pages of your own story. Most importantly, every book in the Busy Writer’s Guide series cuts the fluff so that you have more time to write and to live your life.
