Have you ever written something, sat back for a minute and realized you’re not quite sure which genre it belongs in?
Some genres are distinct; some include sub-genres that cross over each others’ boundaries. This can make submitting to publications and literary agents even more nerve-racking than it already is.
Maybe there’s a series of books you love to read, and have always wondered where they fit in the literary universe. Maybe you’ve always wanted to write books just like those, and want to know more about the genre they’re published under.
Our Genre Breakdown series gives you the rundown on all the genres you love most. And if you don’t see the genre you’re looking for, don’t worry: just leave a comment on this page letting us know you’d love to see a post about it.
Well, let’s get to it, shall we?
