I’ve read many dismissive remarks in years gone by from experts who object to authors whose work crosses genres. I, on the other hand, happen to be one of those indies who finds their audience not only receptive but also intelligent enough to enjoy genre-spanning stories. Several have even told me they were pleased to have taken a chance on a genre they otherwise would not have read. At the same time, I recognize that not every member of my readership (present or future) are going to embrace each work. Some enjoy one style and don’t want to invest their time in another, which is their absolute right. For them, I hopefully have developed a helpful system for discerning between the genres into which my novels fall.
So, without further ado, I present the black & white label system:
DBP BLACK LABEL
This label appears on novels which fall into the horror and/or speculative fiction genres.
They involve the supernatural, demons, ghosts, angels and darker themes. Homecoming was a black label release.
DBP WHITE LABEL
Themes that tend to be suspenseful or dramatic, including
thrillers and romance, fall into this category. Pursuit was a white label release.
These variations in my publishing logo appear somewhere on the cover of every book, as a way to help you decide if the genre of the book may or may not interest you.
