Jean's Writing

Is your genre one of the top percenters?

I hadn’t given this much thought, until reading a great article on Medium by Erica Verrillo from the Writing Cooperative. And boy howdy, the stats were eye-opening. Erica gives stats on most popular genres with readers, agents and includes which genres make the most money.

What surprised me most?

Most books sold by genre…

  • #1Children’s Fiction sells more than three times the number of adult books.

    #1 in sales – Children’s fiction

  • #2Adult GeneralFiction came is second in sales.

Agents most requested genre…

  • First Choice of Agents is NOTChildren’s books, although these books are number one in sales.

    #1 – Request by agents isYA Fiction.

    YA Fiction #1 requested

  • #10Laston the lists for Agent request is Women’s Fiction. I’d expected this to be higher.
  • Agents work on commission of 15%
