>>7320398 >I want to write stuff and make a bunch of money. What do? Fucking list what specific genres you have in mind heathen. You can't just announce yourself and command those near you to give you knowledge because you command it. Form a list of what you think you can write, make a list of what you can kind of write, and then make a list of what you can write. After that weigh what you can write with how profitable it is, but before that grasp what profit is and what it means. Fuck you smdh tbqh faam
just think like a beta and write wish fulfillment hack shit that plays on comfortable tropes.
>in deep space humans encounter a powerful race which transports them to a word which is in medieval stasis, flat and goes on forever in every direction.
>young man saves a little girl in a traffic accident while stationed at a military base somewhere in yourope. He visits her at the hospital and she invites him over for dinner where he realizes that she is cared for by only her older sister who is trying to keep things together. Local thugs are making the block a bad pace and protag1 needs to give up his prior duties in order to find a place where he can really make a difference
just pick an idea which is eyerollingly predictable. Plebs dont want challenge or substance, they want comfort wrapped in so much style they dont realize they have had this before.

Probably fantasy, sci-fi, romance or detective. Fantasy has wide appeal, but lots of competition. Sci fi is a bit more niche, although I am male with a scientific background so that's a positive. Romance and detective novels are mostly read by women, but they fucking gobble that shit up, despite (or because of) how formulaic it generally is. Does anyone even read Westerns?
>>7320553 That stuff seems easy enough. If you want to rake in dough from it I suggest looking for which publisher has the most sales within a certain period for those genres. Sci-fi can be hit or miss depending on how sci-fi you go. Some have a little girl that is actually an alien and she learns it by saving a dog from getting captured by ISIS, some go full out year 30xx interdimensional travel is as barbaric as public transportation kind of routes. You have to find how much sci or fi you want in your sci-fi. If you're doing romance just cater to the deepest darkest insecurities of females using a suave and "powerful" male character and have him do what he wants when he wants but he has like a mistress that he answers to or something. Perceived power for them to feel good about themselves. Also be sure to have the sex scenes be vividly explained but not too informative; vague things like "He made her feel a true sense of bliss as he kissed her lips while she bit her others. He said "If this is what you want, you have to work for it." he then left the room making her feel like a dirty whore that he had used without using." or something like that. The main demo are middle-aged mothers/widows so any kind of action gets them to buy. For detective novels I suggest just making them perceptive. They don't have to be Sherlock Holmes because in the real world he would get things wrong but harken back to perceived power.
>>7320398 genre fiction is dominated by amazon and the writers work insanely hard, especially on your questions of audience, marketing, demographics. most are passionate about their genre or they do thorough research. they put out a book a month and make less than minimum wage
the market is insanely efficient. to think you soar above in talent in such a way that you can slum it up and $$$$$ back up the money truck is an absurd delusion.
>>7320756 Fantasy is a bit hit-and-miss as well. In my opinion fantasy should reflect how you see things and how you could perfect them. That way anything can fantasy, I mean isn't it already subjective?
>>7320398 Main character must be a teenager, preferably a girl. Living in dystopian world. He/she is the hero, but is not perfect, makes mistakes. He/she manages to make something to upset the system (probably by a mistake or a mysterious gift or prophesy he/she had never heard of). Becomes leader of a rebellion. War. He/she and the rebellion win. Add some teenage romance. Make it a trilogy.
