About Readers' Advisory Guides

Tthese short genre primers tell you everything you need to know to work with a fan of the genre. Each practical outline defines the genre, describes why readers like it, lists key titles and authors in the genre, and offers tips and suggestions for talking to readers. These are great training tools or self-help outlines for less familiar genres.
