Paranormal romance and the market

The success of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight created a huge sub-genre in paranormal romance. Having said that, authors like Anne Rice have been writing in the genre for a long time and clearly point to its longevity. 

It is a genre tailor-made for the ebook generation, and has inspired a number of films and TV series, covering the whole nexus of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and YA dark romance. 

So, to join the ranks of the paranormal romance market, your novel must: 

  1. Offer good, clean, readable prose. 
  2. Have a twist on the basic genre that’s new and compelling. 
  3. Create a romance that will capture your audience’s heart. 

Once you’ve perfected your manuscript, you can start your search for the right agent, here. Best of luck!
