“Oh, you’re a writer! How lovely. What genre?”
Uhm, right. And that’s when I was lost for words. Genre? I want to go with Supernatural, but though this is an established genre in tv-land, not so much in bookland. You have Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Horror, Crime, Thriller of course, but where is the Supernatural section? Even Waterstones, my kingdom of Heaven, doesn’t have a Supernatural section. Well, at least not the ones I go to.
And it’s a specific kind of Supernatural as well, my book doesn’t contain vampires, zombies or werewolves, so not that kind of supernatural. My people (yes, regular people) just have gifts. Abilities. Sort of like Charmed, X-men, but not. Sigh.
Other than that, it sort of resembles Sex and the City. They shop, they drink coffee, they go out for dinner, fall in love. Oh, and they try to save our world. Minor detail, I know 😉
So I’m reaching out to anybody who’s read my book. What genre do you think it is? Or do you agree with me and should every bookstore just stock a Supernatural section from now on?
Please drop me a line. Here, or on my facebook or twitter account. And now I really must drink more coffee and get utterly annoyed by this flappy bird game. I mean, write. Did I say flappy bird? Of course not, I would never stoop so low!
