Urban Fiction

I wanted to take a moment to go over the Urban Fiction Genre. Urban Fiction is a rapidly growing genre written in an urban setting with predominately black or latino characters. It provides readers with an in your face depiction of city living that ranges from murder, adultery, cheating, prison, violence and sex all of which are glamorized sensationally.

The urban fiction genre gives writers an opportunity to challenge their imagination, create over the top characters with even larger than life situations. Readers of the genre enjoy the drama and the ability to live vicariously through its characters. Below I have provided a list of recently released titles and the most popular.

    Is it just me or do you find vampire and other such genre stories are finding their way in to the search results for ‘urban fiction’? That kind of bothers me. It’s the same when I look in the science fiction section and fantasy genre stuff has gotten in.

    Thanks for laying it out so clearly.

      I have been noticing a great deal of vampire or stories of the supernatural kind showing up under the urban fiction genre. I think its because it is labeled urban fantasy. This simply means the “vampire” story is written in an urban setting. However urban fiction is a completely different genre and in most cases its fan base is completely different.
