If you have always dreamed of being a writer, you can live your dreams by writing and self-publishing your book. The first thing that you need to do is to know your genre. A genre is the class or category of written works, of which the most popular include science fiction, romance, and mystery and suspense.
The one rule of writing is that you should write what you know. If you have a specific genre that you read, such as women’s fiction or legal thrillers, chances are this is what you will want to write about. Review your interests and the type of books that you read before deciding on your genre.
Since there are many different genres available in both fiction and non-fiction, have a plan of what it will be about and the genre it will fill. If you are not sure of your book’s genre, take a trip to your local bookstore, find the books that you like to read and see in what genre the store places the books.
