It’s sometimes said that genre is a bookseller’s issue, not a writer’s one. Genre exists to group books together so that readers can find something they like. As such, it’s more about the business of writing than the creative side.
While there’s a lot of truth in this, it doesn’t change the fact that genre is important. It affects the way we read and the way we write. It can be a powerful tool for any author.
