Are you a romance author whose novels fit into more than one genre? Maybe you are a reader who enjoys these types of books. If so you might enjoy attending, for example, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America conference, and its programming, workshops, Nebula Awards banquet, autographing, special events, and tours.
While you are in Chicago stop into Book Expo America. BEA is May 11-13, whereas the 2016 SFWA Nebula Conference is May 13-15 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. Don’t miss the awards ceremony on May 14th. Click on the highlighted links for further conference details.
Artists, in this case authors, achieving a crossover from Romance into other genres broaden their appeal among readers. Breaking into another genre increases their potential audience. So, the author’s books, as in the case of the paranormal romances discussed, also might be catagorized as Fantasy or Science-Fiction.
Many paranormal romances I recommended about psychic investigation included mystery, and were considered romantic-suspense as well. What subgenre do you think we’ll encounter next?
See you tomorrow.
