The Genre and Type Hashtags for the ASAWL website

April 29, 2018

As I've been working through the construction of the Authors Seeking Agents Wish List website, it dawned on me that one of the issues I've faced in the query process is the requirement that I select one and only one genre.  My work cuts across genres, and I'm sure I'm not alone.

 

For this reason, I've created an extensive hashtag list, along with an expanded list of types of work, which I intend to incorporate into the website for authors to use, and agents to search. 

 

Here they are:
