Straddling Multiple Genres

If you’re writing a crossgenre book – part mystery, part romance, one part psychological suspense, perhaps – welcome to the Special Challenges Club. Once you finish your draft, you may have some tough decisions to make, including how to edit your story to strengthen its core (is it "romantic suspense," or "suspenseful romance"?), and how to describe your story to would-be agents and readers. This session includes workshop elements to help unearth your story’s core components, as well as examples of successful cross-genre novel pitches and tips on how to find representation.
