Hello. I'm nearing completion on my current work in progress. I'm very excited, but I have a problem. As I'm writing my query, I'm wondering... what the heck do I call this masterpiece of pure genius?
Here is my dilema- fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal, romance? I'm confused. (And I think an agent might think I'm insane if I refer to it as: fantasy/urban fantasy/paranormal/romance. Maybe I should just say "CURSED is a novel, you figure it out" or "you are looking for fantasy, so I'll call it that.)
So, I thought maybe I would get some support from my wonderful friends in the interwhatchamahicky ;)
My book contains the following:
Real world setting
Kids (Its definitely young adult)
Japanese mysticism/ Shinto beliefs
A character who can see Kami (spirits/deities)
A bit of action
A secret spiritual/ magical order
Cursed objects that house said Kami
So, what do you think? (I mean other than wow, I want to read that ;) What would you call it genre-wise?
Just to spice things up, if you answer, I'll send you candy! :)
