What Typ of Book Should you Write?

08 Mar

Just kidding! Your own enjoyment should come into your book and you will create a work, really worthy of publication and enthusiastic readers. If you like several genres, just get a pen name for each in order avoid confusion for your fan base. Don’t choose your genre, let the genre choose you.

The 2011 Verso Survey among 2.200 readers (published recently) makes for an interesting read.  Here are just three of their findings:

Type of e-Book Purchases:
General fiction 38%
Mystery 33%
History 31%
Fantasy / Science F. 28%
Biography / Memoir 27%
Non-fiction, general 25%
Cooking 23%
Self-help 22%
Children’s lit. 20%
Romance 19%
Religion 18%
Home Improvement 16%

$13 – 14.99 = 10%
