- Say Steven King and I shiver.
- Hand me a Tess Gerritson and I settle in my chair for a deep, deliberate police procedural.
- Julia Quinn is a name that evokes fun in a Regency setting.
- Frederick Pohl is a synonym for thrilling Sci Fi (I can't help adding him, I was at a presentation with this legend this weekend and meeting this hero from my childhood was a high point)
My vote is that an author establish a brand by sticking to a genre. Set things up so I know what I'm getting when I search for one of your books. If I'm looking for more than just a "good book," if I want a specific read, the kind of thrill you handed me last time, and this time you hand me something else, it could be a long time before I try that author again in either genre
Now you tell me
Please take a minute to give your thoughts.
I know other's look at things different. Tell me how you pick out your books? Is the genre more important, or the author? Does branding even matter?
