Crossing Genre

From the moment you send out your first query letter, your work will be labeled by agents, publishers, and booksellers. Instead of resisting the urge to be labeled, this session will teach you why you should consider labels a way to make your books, and your author platform, more marketable. Learn how to avoid the genre box and tell the story you want to tell to the largest possible group with the help of J.D. Barker who has successfully crossed over from horror, to paranormal, to thriller, and back again. Learn how to avoid the genre box and tell the story you want to tell to the largest possible group.
