You Asked: How Important is Genre?

Welcome to another, You Asked, the Experts Answer, segment. This week   our question is: How important is genre?

The simple answer is – very. According to C. S. Lakin, from Live, Write, Thrive, there’s a  direct correlation between book sales and genre. And, from where I’m sitting that’s an important piece of information for authors to know.

In her article,  If You Don’t Learn This Truth, You May Be Missing Out on Big Book SalesMs.Lakin discusses how to specifically target a  genre and what that means in terms of successful sales.

So, if you’re unsure or wondering why your book sales are staying stagnant, check out her post on Live, Write, Thrive.

What do you think? Did you generalize or get specific in identifying your genre and did it translate into sales?
