Researching SF&F Fans

Postby Lance816 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 7:28 pm

Hello I am Andrew and I wish to become a novelist. I wish to create a book series and am on the path of doing so. My next step is to find out my audience and what they like reading. My genre puts me under Science Fiction and Fantasy or Speculative Fiction. When searching for data on SF&F fans I came across an article by Tina Dubinsky at .

They Survey I wish for SF&F fans to take is a copy and paste from Tina’s. The second half of my survey consists of questions about themes and elements I wish to put into my series. So I would like those who take part in my survey to also take part in Tina’s which is linked at the bottom of her article. My survey can be found at and I would like to thank you in advance for taking part of it! And again please also fill out Tina’s survey since the first half of mine is a copy and paste of hers.

If you're focusing on marketability rather then creativity I'm automatically not interested. You should be writing because you have an idea, not because you want to be the next Stephen King or JK Rowling.
