Back & Forth: Genre Branding

Back & Forth with Sven and Nevs

by Sven Davison

What’s your favorite item on the Thanksgiving table? Perhaps everything on the menu is the main attraction? Is there a strategy to eat without feeling stuffed? Can the concept be applied to writing? Is it healthier to stick a single genre, or will that create a stomachache for your career?

NEVS and Sven take up the debate.

One thought on “Back & Forth: Genre Branding

  1. Interesting. Hmmm… Either way, I think the most important thing is to HAVE a brand, if not for your readers, for yourself. A brand gives you focus even if your interests are eclectic. I read somewhere that if you ask yourself certain questions about your values, you will find that one thread runs through all of your writing, no matter what genre. (Now if only I could remember what those questions were! Maybe someone here knows).
