I’ve been seeing a lot of comments on Twitter that the only category and genre that mentors are asking for is basically YA Contemporary. So, the statistician in me got curious, and I decided to go read every single blog, and compile everything they were asking for. Please keep in mind, not all mentors were specific, and the ones with 0% aren’t necessarily zero, but the percentage was so low, that’s what the chart put.
I was honestly surprised at the results – seems like the wishlists for genres are pretty diverse in each category. Of course, some genres tend to come up more often, while others are practically non-existant, but if you know the industry, then you also already know what the market is demanding. *sobs as I write adult paranormal and dark fantasy*
To better see and zoom in, please click on the charts which will take you to a larger version on my Photobucket account
I’ll repeat this again, but please keep in mind that with the pie charts, those are percentages, so just because you see 0%, doesn’t mean there aren’t any requests for that genre!
