How to Write & Sell a Cross-Genre Novel by Brian Klems at Writer’s Digest

Brian Klems of Writer’s Digest wrote a great article titled “How to Write & Sell a Cross-Genre Novel,” which begins with this fantastic quote:

For as long as any of us can remember, the term genre fiction has referred to work that fits neatly into a single prescribed category: science fiction, romance, mystery, fantasy, horror, historical, etc. But take a close look at any bookshelf today, and you might be surprised to see how much the lines between genre fiction and mainstream fiction—and even between certain traditionally compartmentalized genres—are blurring.

– by Michelle Richmond, bestselling author of the The Year of Fog and the creator of The Guided Workbooks for Writers series.

In other news, I must apologize for my lapse in posting here. I have been super swamped with work! I will probably be posting here more along the lines of once a week because my schedule this time of year always gets so insane. I have received many good responses about posting articles like the one up there ^. So, I am going to primarily be sharing more interesting tidbits about writing and publishing as time goes on. Have a great week!
