If you're a writer, what genre do you write? Do you write in only one genre? Or do you cross lines, maybe writing a horror book, then switching to a comedy? Or perhaps you tend to write scary Romances, combining Horror with Romance.
As most of you already know, I've published a Women's Fiction with a bit of suspense. My next book, which I'm in the process of editing will be Suspense. The lead character is a woman, but this one will be suspense from beginning to end.
Different genres have different paces, different topics, different types of covers, even different titles.
My Women's Fiction is titled Angel Sometimes. In my mind, that's a "soft" title. In this case, it's the protagonist's name.
While Angel Sometimes has suspense, my next book, Dismembering the Past will be a total suspense, from beginning to end. On the title alone, you could probably have guessed it was Suspense, although that could possibly have been the title of a Horror.
Think about your title. Does it fit the genre?
The cover for the e-version of Angel Sometimes is a picture of a flower garden. The garden is significant to the story. It's also "soft". It probably wouldn't appeal to men, but then, it's Women's Fiction.
The cover for the print version of Angel Sometimes will not be a flower garden. It will be, I'm thinking, a water scene since Angel is a mermaid at a bar/restaurant. That will still "say" Women's Fiction.
I don't yet know what the cover will be for Dismembering the Past, but it won't be "soft".
Spend time deciding what your cover will look like and what it will convey to a possible reader.
