Picking a genre is like picking a single crayon

At my heart, I'm a non-conformist. Sure, I follow the rules -- but only long enough to get the rule-makers to give me my space. Then it's Watch Out! I color outside the lines. I mix and match my algebraic variables. I ask questions teachers don't want to answer.

Not that I'm a mischief-maker -- I'm not. I'm just... different. (This is probably why I have such a hard time pigeon-holing my work into a genre.)

In publishing, it's easier if your work fits tidily into a box. Mysteries are marketed to demographic A, and romance sells best among women. Horror goes another place entirely -- let's call it demographic C -- and the opposite for sci-fi and fantasy. Each type of work has its own little niche to fill.

Remember I said I color outside the lines? Same thing here.

Don't ask me to pick just one genre. I'm a fan of all of them.

Heather S. Ingemar has loved to play with words since she was little, and it wasn’t long until she started writing her own stories. Termed “a little odd” by her peers, she took great delight in exploring tales with a gothic flair, and to this day, Edgar Allan Poe continues to be her literary hero.

Hi!

My name is Jessica and I contacted you last week about the Vogue Eyewear Virtual Closet Sweepstakes and Mobile Closet Tour. I’m just checking in to see if you'd be interested in doing a post for us on your site, as we have the same audience and I feel your readers would be really excited about what we're doing!

Here's some information about the Virtual Closet Sweepstakes and Mobile Closet Tour:

VIRTUAL CLOSET SWEEPSTAKES:
Simply visit http://www.vogue-eyewear.com/virtualcloset/us/ and join the Vogue Eyewear Virtual Closet online sweepstakes for a chance to win a real fashion closet! Your look will be published in the sweepstake’s gallery and on the Vogue Eyewear’s fan page http://www.facebook.com/vogue.eyewear

MOBILE CLOSET TOUR:
You can also play in person! The Vogue Eyewear Mobile Closet Tour will showcase the latest apparel, shoes, handbags, hats, accessories, and of course Vogue Eyewear available for participants to enjoy and have fun with. Once inside, they will enter a world previously reserved for fashion editors, celebrities, designers, and models. The mobile closet interactive display is as close to “Fashion Heaven” as a woman can get, with different areas dedicated to each Vogue Eyewear line (Vamp, Pop Star, Hippy, Denim, Geek, Doll).

After working with consultants to achieve the right look (perfected with a pair of Vogue Eyewear Frames), participants will get their turn in front of the camera for a cover shoot. They will walk away with a glossy photo, a link to retrieve the photo online, and the ability to share their new look via social media.
