This is a 2 part question. 1.) If a soap Opera was adapted into novel form, what Genre would it be categorized in? I want to say Romance but due to the Open ending narratives soap operas have, couples usually dont end up together for a happy ever after. Any idea what category it would be in? 2.) My WIP is mixture of Genres...It has Romance, Mystery/Thriller, Horror, Fantasy and Crime. I asked a agent about mix breed novels an was told that its okay to label it Mainstream Fiction but then i came across another answer where an agent said Publishers sometimes label books just simply Adult Ficiton if it has mutliple genres it. My problem is, i want to make the readers aware that its HEAVY romance and angst and Melodrama with a Fantasy twist in the book. But i cant label it Paranormal Romance because there is no HEA in the end (well for some couples their arent). Any idea on the more accurate genre to label it?
