Hi Christopher
I understand the difficulty. I have books that are not slotted neatly into one single genre that is why I now slot them all under fantasy with a sub genre. Fantasy/Drama, Fantasy/Sci-fi, and Fantasy/Magic. But m=for my books, the fantasy is the main tone of the book.

You say your book is suspense, thriller, and drama. This should not sway the genre labelling since even a pure science fiction story should have suspense, thrilling moments, and drama as part of the plot as this is what keeps readers turning the page. In fact, your title already suggests the other three elements in the word "conspiracy". I don't think there's a need to make it clearer.

So to answer your question, firstly, you need to make sure your book is science fiction by checking if the contains any of the following: does it feature space ships or space travel, aliens, time travel, off world planets, a futurists Earth that is not dystopian, robots, science experiments, etc. If it does, I'd label it as science fiction.

If it doesn't, then it isn't science fiction. It's fantasy.

I've learned during my recent pitching sessions to agents and publishers, that science fiction stands alone because they want it to stand alone. Sci-fi has it's own sub genres such as apocalyptic, dystopian, space opera, hard sci-fi, soft sci-fi. It's my understanding that the market wants sci-fi to remain pure, and everything else can be branded under the fantasy umbrella.

I hope this helps. Be proud of labelling your book sci-fi if it truly is sci-fi. There are many great sites dedicated to promotion science fiction books.

Thank you for your question. It can be tough choosing a genre.

I know that sounds the simplified generic answer but the more you write the better and faster you get at it. Write your book, submit it to agents/publishers, then start a new book while waiting to hear yes or no. Give yourself a few days off if you need it to celebrate the finish of your book, but get started on the next book right away. Always have a book on the go. that way you'll always have a book ready to submit when the doors open for your genre. there have been times when I've submitted a book into a heavily saturated market, then I've put it on hold and waited for another opportunity to present itself.

Update on the songwriting adventure

 Hello

How has everyone been doing? It has been a little while since my last post. What has happened since then is that I've taken a hiatus from writing novels and I'm giving my musical creativity the attention it deserves.

The update so far is that I've written a dozen songs, recorded seven of them in part or full, and I've submitted them for consideration for TV shows and recording artists. So

David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Andy Weir
“He’s stuck out there. He thinks he’s totally alone and that we all gave up on him. What kind of effect does that have on a man’s psychology?” He turned back to Venkat. “I wonder what he’s thinking right now.”
