I propose a new book category: Eco-fiction

As I’ve written about previously, categorizing The Tourist Trail has been no simple task.

Although there are surprises, suspense, and plenty of action, I would not categorize the book as a “thriller” or “action & adventure” novel.

But I also don’t feel that the book fits comfortably in the “literary fiction” category. After all, literary fiction is supposed to be boring, right?

Just kidding.

Here is the full list of fiction categories available for the Amazon Kindle:


  • General
  • Action & Adventure
  • African American
  • Alternative History
  • Anthologies
  • Biographical
  • Christian
  • Classics
  • Coming of Age
  • Contemporary Women
  • Crime
  • Cultural Heritage
  • Erotica
  • Espionage
  • Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, Legends & Mythology
  • Family Life
  • Fantasy
  • Gay
  • Ghost
  • Historical
  • Horror
  • Humorous
  • Jewish
  • Legal
  • Lesbian
  • Literary
  • Media Tie-In
  • Medical
  • Men’s Adventure
  • Mystery & Detective

Jeff Bezos, in case you’re reading this blog, I think it’s time you add a category.


I’d appreciate it.

  1. I couldn’t agree more! I’ve had a Google Alert on “ecofiction” for the last 6 months, and I think your post is the first notice I’ve seen. I think ecofiction is on the rise, though! Have you read Patricia K. Lichen’s “Kidnapping the Lorax”? And, if you wait a yet-to-be-determined length of time, you can read my book when it’s published. Your book sounds fascinating…I’ll check it out.

  2. Hi Denise — Thanks for the book recommendations. Please let me know when yours publishes as well. And be sure to subscribe to the Ashland Creek Press newsletter here: http://ashlandcreekpress.com/subscribe.html

    Most of our books would fit into the eco-fiction category.

    Now we just have to convince the powers that be to actually create such a category!
