Hi all! Been away for a while, but now I’m back with a few new thoughts of where I want to go with my writing. Does anybody have any thoughts on the Extreme Horror/Splatterpunk genre? Is there really a market for this type of novel? Most of what little I’ve read doesn’t seem to be very good; very basic writing, little-to-no character development, amateurish descriptions of the violence and gore. But that seems to be the norm; it’s what the readers expect. It’s almost like they’re the literary version of video nasties (which I absolutely adore!). I’m fairly certain I could write a good (as in, exceeding the expectations of the readers) Splatterpunk novel. I’ve got a few ideas for stories that could work with plenty of gore thrown in. I also have some good ideas for marketing these novels. All Extreme Horror novels seem to be self-published, which is the route I’m expecting to go. But what I’m curious about is how many people actually read these novels? Is there any way to find out how many copies a certain novel has sold? Does anybody have any other thoughts on the genre? Anybody here a fan of the genre? Cheers!
