From Fiction University: I'm currently taking a blogging/writing break during the month of September to deal with family health issues. There will be no new posts until October. But please feel free to read through the archives for posts you might have missed. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Genre

Genre refers to the books that have some strong element in them that defines them as a particular type of book, such as fantasy, romance, or crime fiction. These types of novels have required tropes, and if the novel doesn't have those, it's not that genre. Readers expect to see those tropes and are disappointed if they're not there.
