One problem that authors of unique literature face is the classification of their work. I am no exception, as I am writing a series which may be called fantasy, sci-fi-, adventure, or simply fiction.
If you are having the same problem, then please feel free to leave a comment along with your blog address! Mine is http://sheewan-scribe.blogspot.ca/.
Thank you and happy writing!
Personally I don't see the genre as a marketing tool at all, but rather as a way to provide the reader with some basic parameters about what to expect and in that regard calling it 'horror' wouldn't do. Simply put, that word conjures up a mental image that has nothing to do with what the book is about (though amazon labeled it as such). Personally I would probably rather settle for 'fiction' but that term is so vague that it is completely useless.
