I'm a creative writing teacher in Turkey, and have been debating putting some time and effort in writing a book purely for profit, rather than art. Whore that I am. As the title of the thread betrays - I'm looking for a genre: which is the most popular..? I suspect horror, but I'm only guessing. I'm also debating on style. I have a large and obscure vocabulary, and a love of tortuous grammar, neither of which I presume will endear me to the average punter. So, "The cat sat on the mat." Or, "The feline reclined languidly upon the kilim."..? Does dumb sell better than complex..? And finally. How long..? A three-hundred page one-off..? A thousand-page monster like "A suitable boy"..? A never-ending series..? I'm not looking for an extended sociological debate - just a point in the right direction.
