One of the most challenging tasks for authors is determining their correct book genre. One reason is the disagreement between publishing professionals about book genre definitions. Another reason is the fact that there’s never been one book or website with a comprehensive (and accurate) list of book genre definitions.
It’s fairly easy to figure out what genre your book fits into if you have a list of book genre definitions you can trust. So I hope you’ll take full advantage of the book genre definitions on this website. The definitions you’ll find here are the ones that I’ve used during my many years in the publishing industry. First, as a literary agent. Second, as the Marketing & Licensing manager of a well-known publisher. And now, as an Author Consultant.
