Common Novel is a joint venture between myself and my writing partner, Diana Biller. Despite dominating the publishing market (and we mean DOMINATING—romance, mystery, and speculative fiction alone brought in around 2.8 billion dollars in 2012, compared to about 471 million from classic literary fiction), popular fiction is often overlooked when it comes to serious reviews, commentary, and analysis.
We thought it deserved more, and that’s why we founded Common Novel.
It's is a celebration of genre reading. It’s a celebration of the tattered paperback, of the third-time-through, and of the book that’s currently living in your purse. It’s a celebration of the genres themselves: romance, young adult, new adult, horror, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy.
