    Just finished Fixing Freddie. Definitely worth checking out if you like well written stories. You don’t have to be a dog lover to enjoy. It goes much, much deeper than that.

    I have a question, and I am not entirely sure where to post this question. (I am new to writer’s digest) But since this agent is looking for Romance, I thought I’d post it here.

    My genre expertise is action adventure with a spin in the fantasy realm. That being said, I have written a romance novel (well, more-or-less a “love” story, as Nicholas Sparks puts it) and everyone who has read it–friends and pseudo-strangers alike–says it is “amazing.”

    So here is my question. I am not published yet, and I would like to publish this romance novel; however, it isnt in my genre. So, since I will most likely not ever write in the romance genre again, should I try to get it published?

    I have heard a thing or two about publishing in multi-genres, but since not many people do that, I can’t find much information on it.

      Hi Crono91,

      A romance novel is defined as the journey of the hero and heroine. There can be subplots too, but the main arc of the story is how the relationship between the couple grows until they finally find their happily ever after. If the story just has romance in it, it’s not considered genre romance. If you think what you have written is a romance novel, but you know for sure you won’t be writing any more of them, I wouldn’t query an agent on that. A lot of times an agent will ask to see your other work and if they don’t represent your action adventure/fantasy books, it could be a waste of everyone’s time. Websites like querytracker.net list most agents and what they represent, so that may be a good place to start.
