Is your genre one of the top percenters?
I hadn’t given this much thought, until reading a great article on Medium by Erica Verrillo from the Writing Cooperative. And boy howdy, the stats were eye-opening. Erica gives stats on most popular genres with readers, agents and includes which genres make the most money.
What surprised me most?
Most books sold by genre…
#1 – Children’s Fiction sells more than three times the number of adult books.
#1 in sales – Children’s fiction
- #2 – Adult GeneralFiction came is second in sales.
Agents most requested genre…
- First Choice of Agents is NOTChildren’s books, although these books are number one in sales.
#1 – Request by agents isYA Fiction.
YA Fiction #1 requested
- #10 – Laston the lists for Agent request is Women’s Fiction. I’d expected this to be higher.
- Agents work on commission of 15%
