Multi-gentre


I've written mystery fantasy. I've written urban fantasy. I've written fantasy (though the less said about that particular work, the better). I've written a partial for a spy story (it may never see life outside of the drawer, but I still wrote it). I've begun a historical mystery. I'm about to begin a sci-fi space opera.
I can't help but wonder if I'm in too many genres. Will agents, publishers, and readers accept someone who writes so much scattered across the genre board? I know pen names can help, but those are short-lived in the age of social networking.
Of course, that's a conversation to have once I get an agent, so I guess I should shut up and get back to writing.
But part of me can't help but think about it from time to time.

Check out Ken Follett. He writes across genre and does a great job.
