Who's Your Audience?

My intended audience for my stories are young readers of picture books or middle grade/young adult books. I like contemporary fiction as well as fantasy and magical realism. I also have not ruled out the possibility of writing for the adult market someday.

So I can get to know my readers and the participants in the Blogging A to Z Challenge better, I would like you to share with me the genres you write and your intended audience. It doesn't matter if you want to write kidlit or write for adults. Just go ahead and drop me a line.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great topic!

My novels are thrillers so I write for adults. I would really like to write stories for younger kids one day too, but I know it's hard to pull off.

Nice job!
I write contemporary romance. But, I don't have an audience yet! Working on it!
Thanks for sharing.

I never really think of audience though I know I should. I've written adult,YA, and picture books. For right now I'm focusing on fiction but hope to be able to visit YA and picture books in the future.

Fun! I write YA contemporaries, though my current WIP feels a little younger, maybe tween. I'm not messing with it during my first draft for fear of throwing off the voice and tone I have going, but I know in revisions I'll have to either age my MC up or down. Audience consideration is sooo important! Great post!

I like to write and illustrate picture books. The use of minimal text that's paired well with illustrations is my main goal. As for topics. . .slice of life moments, stories from my cultural background (Taiwanese), and silly sci-fi animals (ex. Space Chickens) are my favorite areas to work in. Great idea Cynthia!

I'm popping in from the A-Z. I certainly have to keep audience in mind because my two novels are two different genres (whoops). My first was mainstream gay light literary, and my second (published on the 20th) is a dark paranormal. Different audiences!!! Good luck with A-Z

Kathleen Valentine said...

An important thing to know!!! My audience is people who want good writing AND a good story. Thanks for your thoughts!

Hey Cynthia! First off, I LOVE your header. I'm a huge tree fan, and this one is awesome. :)
Second, I'm a fellow A-Z challenger, lol.
And third, I write YA suspense. I'm calling it that for now, but some of it may be paranormal and a lot are mysteries. I also write adult fun mysteries.
Glad to meet ya.

Hi! Stopping by from the A-Z Challenge.
I write contemporary blended with historical suspense with a bit of murder, mayhem, and magic thrown in :-) Also YA fantasy, as well as memoirs. (I'm all over the place )

Nice post. I write a mixture of everything. My short stories can be quite eclectic. My novel, though, is suspense/drama with a hint of paranormal.

Sarah Pearson said...

I'm revising two right now, a women's future fiction novel, and a crime thriller. I also have a woman's contemporary and a YA contemporary waiting for rewrites. I'm keeping my options open :-)

Jennifer R. Hubbard said...

Ya and adult.

I don't write much. I review more. I would like to write, though. What I've written in the past would probably be classified YA since I don't do a lot of mature content.

The other members of my crew write fiction of all kinds.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and telling me a lil' bit more about yourself!

I write fantasy. If I ever finish a novel, it will hopefully be YA/MG
