I'm full of questions today!! This one is: would it matter what book you published first if you're not a writer who has a very specialised output? For instance, if you wrote horror stories, and more romantic horror (or even something wildly different like chick lit and westerns), did both equally well, and got something published, would it then affect readers' opinion of you? Or, more relevant to my current wonderings, if you self-published a (for example) romantic book and then pitched a horror to a publisher, would they just see you as a good writer - or just a good writer of romance, and be reluctant to look at anything else? If you wanted to be known as someone who would write a particular thing, even if you wrote and are proud of something in a different genre, would you try and publish that first, or would the chronology merge together into a big picture in a publisher's eyes??
