An article about creating new genres.


Neil D. Ostroff
One of the hardest things most writers face is figuring out just what kind of a book they have written? For some hard-core genre writers the answer is easy; crime, suspense, romance… but for most of us our novels are a combination of genres, maybe part love story with a vampire police force or a YA adventure with magic and time travel. So what do you do when the inevitable question of genre is asked?
For me, I make up my own. Well, not exactly. I call my books gritty noir thrillers, which isn’t exactly an original category but one I’ve rarely seen used. Why use this unique tag? Well, if you read my books you’ll know why. Here’s a quick synopsis of just three of my books now available everywhere in print and electronically.
PULP- A clairvoyant prostitute, a psychotic soldier, a broke newspaper writer, and a dismembered body; what could go wrong?
Amazon link:
DEGENERATES- Each degenerate overcomes incredible obstacles working in a restaurant named City Café, until a psychotic co-worker changes everything about their lives.
Amazon link: 
FROSTPROOF- Niles Goodman is on a weeklong trip into madness as his best friend kills indiscriminately and then explains the philosophy behind his actions.
Amazon link:
Of course, longer descriptions and sample pages are available at my website:
So when it comes to figuring your books’ place in the writing community I suggest taking the main plots and coming up with something unique. Say, supernatural cyber-punk, or historical paranormal love story. With the new wave of Indie publishing and writers taking control of their own destinies, why not twist the meaning of genre and come up with something unique?
