Genre writing

Genres and how to write in them

Many writers are writing genre fiction, which is a particularly good place for a writer to focus their attention because the market is strong for many categories and many of them are in the forefront when it comes to publishing your book as an ebook.

You shouldn't think it's an easy option though, because many genre readers have read very widely in their chosen genre and there is often a high standard in it, as well as a large body of work available and being published all the time. So this series sets out to give writers some background in the genres, what readers are looking for and how to approach writing for them.
