#PitchWars Statistics

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!

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative
    and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something
    relating to this.
