1. Paranormal romance
2. Romantic suspense
4. Urban Fantasy
6. Contemporary romance
7. Historical romance
8. Sci-Fi romance
No straight fantasy or science fiction on that list. No siree. And I’m really picky about sci-fi romance. Horror moved down quite a bit, which kind of surprised me. Used to be all I ever read was Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Not so much anymore. I love romance, but not just romance. I’d rather have other stuff involved than just internal conflicts. I’m not all that crazy about the couples hating one another (and if they do, it better not last long).
Of course, a favorite author will bump any genre down the list, and I have lots of favorites!
I’ve told you about needing to delete 10,000 words from BITE ME, I’M YOURS. Well, I managed to hack off over 7,500. My estimation was 5,000, so it’s nice I under estimated. Still, it would have been nice if I had managed to reach that magical 10,000-word mark. I’ll read through it one more time (later on this week) and hope I didn't screw it up too much.
So…how do you rank your genres? Or do you go strictly by authors?
