Therese,

I'm glad you found the list helpful. Inside industry information is hard to come by, but oh so valuable.

Both my agent and I agree my novel is upmarket womens fiction. We shall see what others deem it. I can't wait to read Souvenir, especially since I read an excerpt on your site. It is so compelling and fresh!

Brilliant guide, Lynne! It's astounding how difficult it is to find such a comprehensive glossary in print OR online.

So how, then, would you characterize your novel?

Mine is upmarket...but, interestingly enough, my UK publisher is making what by these definitions (and Miss Snark's) would have to be called a downmarket marketing effort. Pretty fascinating how the approach can vary by marketplace...

Astairesteps,

Why, thank you! I'm so glad you found it helpful.

This is one of the most enlightening posts I've read. It was easy to understand, needed (and wanted), and very helpful.

Thank you!

Hi Reality,

Thank you for the kind words. As for your genre, I would use the term upmarket. It means the same thing as literary/mainstream, but would demonstrate how current you are--you're potential agent would know you've done your homework.

Good luck with your agent search--my fingers are crossed for you.

I don't have words to say what a small and shining gem this is.
Thanks Lynne.

I tend to describe my genre as 'literary/mainstream'. Should I write 'Upmarket' in my query letter. Or I leave that to the agent/editor (sigh).



Thanks for the info.

2007-06-28T14:42:00.000-04:00

Thanks for the info.

Larramie,

I'm with you, I love quiet compelling fiction. Too bad even readers are in a rush these days.

2007-06-28T12:58:00.000-04:00

Thank you, Lynne, this post was fascinating. And I discovered that although I read a variety of genres, my favorite is usually quiet novels with compelling delivery.

Sue,

I'm so glad it was helpful. It's like learning a new language, isn't it? Thanks for stopping by.
