It’s been some time since my last post. What can I say, other than I’ve been busy? Been reading some great blogs though, and by blogs I’m referring specifically to Zoe Winter’s blog. She is precisely who I’d like to be, without the sex-change of course.
Anywho, for those of you accidentally visiting this blog due to the quote from Inception (you wouldn’t believe how many people google that daily) or those precious few still checking in for content, I have a question for you. Is there such a thing as Family Adventure, insofar as genres go? I’ve been thinking a lot about this, particularly because I’ve never been a hundred percent comfortable with labeling The Dead Don’t Cry science fiction. I mean, make no mistake, that’s what it is. But that classification doesn’t give the reader the faintest clue as to what they’re getting themselves into. Zoe writes supernatural romance. Now that’s specific. I can grab any of her books (I presume) and read about some powerful beings getting it on. There’s so much value to that. As someone completely unfamiliar with her work, I have a sense of what her books are about. What does sci-fi tell you about TDDC?
NOTHING (especially useful anyway).
So, I’m creating a genre. And if it exists (which is entirely possible) please inform me of my ignorance and point me in the right direction.
The Dead Don’t Cry is Sci/Fi Adventure.
