    Historical. I like the variety that different times and places offer.

    I would love to know! Mine has a modern beginning and end, time-travel to ancient Pompeii in the middle, with the time travel instigated by a devil. What is that? Paranormal? Time Travel? Historical?

    I like to write contemporary and for some reason, my gravitation is toward the New Adult subgenre. I love the college-age time period in our lives, when we are trying to figure everything out. I love how intense relationships are at that age.

    I actually started writing the series I'm working on before I knew "New Adult" existed. Glad it does, since that's what I wrote!

    Contemporary - fantasy, I might say. Depends on several factors.

    For instance, how much does your devil play into the story? if he's a major part of the entire story line, not just the cause of the time-travel, then maybe paranormal is correct. I wouldn't tout it as paranormal, though, unless the paranormal element encompasses the entire story.

    Since you start in the present and go back to it, I would guess that your MCs are contemporary, so I wouldn't consider it a historical.

    I lean toward romantic-suspense myself, but darn it if a paranormal element doesn't manage to slip itself in there!

    My last MS was probably somewhere along the lines of a Jayne Ann Krentz Arcane novel feel. Romance surrounded by a mystery, with a strong paranormal element. Or perhaps spiritual is more correct since it involves Heaven and guardian angels.

    My current WIP still has a strong paranormal involvement, (ghosts this time) but less so. It's more mystery and suspense that surrounds the romance, forcing the paranormal to take a back seat. Probably more along the lines of Julie Garwood's contemporary series with her hunky FBI men, although she has no paranormal elements in sight.

    I just finished a glut of novel-length contemporaries, so I'm taking an erotic paranormal break. I expect they'll be plenty silly.
