Discovering LitRPG

Turns out I’ve been barking up the wrong tree as far as Stuck in the Game‘s genre goes!
With its science fiction elements, I assumed cyberpunk was the genre I should be selling it under. I had no idea that there was already a pre-made genre with its own community and platform on social media. As someone who has published a book in this genre recently and has a sequel on the way, this is almost the equivalent of getting a soft re-release for my potential series, the DREAM STATE SAGAFor anyone interested, you can check out their hashtagFacebook groups like or website, which I will be appearing on in the future.

As for what LitRPG is, it’s a genre acronym that speaks for itself: Literature focusing on Role Playing Games. This can be executed via science fiction elements with a character interacting with a VR gaming world or via fantasy elements by magic drawing the player into the gaming world itself. Of course, this is nothing new. Many works in many mediums in this genre have been around for a very long time, but the genre has only recently been popularized. As one of the more recent authors to be traditionally published in this genre, I’m more than willing to jump on the bandwagon and promote my books under it.

    I have noticed this is becoming a bigger thing now. I feel like it’s because of sword Art Online and .Hack.
