Friday Round-Up - #231 - New Genre Alert?

Mary Keeley blogs at Books and Such about a possible new genre for CBA - Baby Boomer Lit. As authors/writers, it's interesting to look at trends and decide if they're something we might consider.

Writers: How did you decide on your present genre?

Readers: What's your favorite genre and why?

Have a blessed weekend!

"Baby boomer lit" sounds interesting! I was born in 1947, so I guess I would fit the target audience.

My favorite genre is probably more one of style, and that would be character-driven, relationship drama. I read a lot of historical and contemporary both, but always look for a more literary or "up market" style as I believe it's sometimes called.

Hi Carol -

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

You'd probably enjoy books by Mary DeMuth and Patty Hickman. My own book, The Moses Conspiracy, crosses genre lines to include "relationship drama."

Susan :)
