For starters they help agents and publishers get an idea of what they’re in for if you’re going through the traditional publishing route While bookstores usually just put these genres within science fiction or fantasy you can still market your book through sub genres to reach a specific group of people who are looking for these genres<span><br><span> <span><br><span>However there are a lot of sub genres most of which many have not heard of If you’ve written one of these genres and intend to publish it the best would be to put it under another name with the exception of steampunk cyberpunk and biopunk For example if you have written a candlepunk story you can propose it as fantasy alternate historical fiction or any other genre it may fit in While atomicpunk is quite common it’s not well known by that name If you have written an atompunk story the best way to market it would be to call it retro science fiction<span><br><span> <span><br><span>But what’s the difference between punk genres and historical fiction? The technology is a big difference It’s usually more advanced for the time it’s modeled after<span> <div> <div><span> <span><div> <div><strong><span>TECHNOLOGY<span><strong><div> <blockquote>
