I have a quandary.

Is my soon-to-be-released novel, Voice, erotica?

Is it mainstream?


Visionary fiction?

Or a paranormal romance?

Truth be told, it’s a little of all of the above. Which is fine…but doesn’t help marketing. You see, I have to pick a genre in order to release the book. You usually get a main and secondary descriptor you can pick. And the various platforms are slightly different, but I think what I’m going to have to do is make “erotica” one of the choices, because of some of the obvious content—and to properly alert readers—then select a sub descriptor, such as “Fiction” or “Psychological.” If “mainstream” is in there, and I can also get “erotica,” that is what I’ll do.

This is a novel that can truly have a greater reach than everything else I’ve previously written. It’s not hard paranormal as it is generally considered…and it’s not traditional romance. It is a psychological story to be sure. And as far as “visionary fiction”…well, there’s definitely some of that in there, too. But it’s a story about son’s failed relationship with his father…and how it has affected his life…and his relationships.

It’s a story about love.

  1. Think of some of the greatest writers… many are mixed genre, or write in more than one genre. Dean Koontz wrote with derision about publishers that didn’t like him writing in an unclear/different genre… he moved to another publisher, continued to do so and became… well, we know what happened with him. Your writing reminds me of his… especially your sense of freedom from following expected norms. You are trope-less. 🙂 instead of hopeless!
