I just got the e-mail for ENT's Book of the Day for this year. They had this at the end:
So, I was wondering if anyone had promoted one of the less popular genres on ENT -- specifically fantasy/young adult/paranormal (my books fall mostly into those genres). Did you have enough success that $60 would be worth it? Or should I check out other places? If so, where might those genres have more success? KND, POI, etc.? I know there's a POI for YA and Children's books, but I haven't really looked into their promo opportunities lately.Some genres are very successful with our audience while others don't do as well. Examples of genres that do well are pretty much any type of romance (historical, comedy, western, contemporary), mystery, suspense, drama and sometimes even horror. Genres that don't do quite as well are science fiction, fantasy, young adult, children's books and paranormal. If you want to promote a book in any of the genres that I've mentioned that don't do as well, that is totally up to you but I wanted to make sure to point that out.
