What is Upmarket Fiction?

“Upmarket fiction” is a relatively new phrase. When BookEnds first opened its doors over twenty years ago, it was rarely—if ever—used. If anything, this is a part of the industry that really only began within the last five years. So, if it’s an unfamiliar term to you, no worries. Many people are probably still learning it and that’s why we’ve got today’s weekly video blog post to help you figure it out.

  1. This was one of my favorite Bookends videos! Made me wonder if that’s actually what I write. It would sure explain a lot, but it just feels too presumptuous when I try to say it myself. I probably won’t really know either way until I have an agent to tell me unequivocally. Anyway I love these glimpses into the publishing industry!
