Trying to understand the distinction between these genres. My work is not genre. I love to write (and read) a good origin story -- sometimes the family saga, multi-generational type of thing and other times just heavily character focused. Usually modern, e.g., 1950 forward. My current WIP is a 100K novel following two families from 1950-2007. I'm thinking about the querying process and how to label the genre. Saying it's literary seems presumptuous given I'm a new writer with no writing resume or accolades. So I'm inclined to just say it's commercial fiction - even though that seems so broad - and rely on the blurb and comps to describe what it is. Anyone have experience with this? Also, I'd be interested in connecting with others who might write this sort of thing.
