Is contemporary fantasy a common genre?
Having used the book country map (love it!) to pin the genre of my WIP down to contemporary fantasy, that was the genre I put down when I did a query workshop recently.
However, one of the feedback comments I got was: So, urban fantasy? Like xxx author?
I am wondering from that, how widely known/accepted contemporary fantasy is as a genre. Is it safer to describe a contemporary fantasy as urban fantasy despite its rural setting and lack of noir elements/female kickassitude?
