Because romance is the only thing I'm sure about...
Hi Alexandra! Welcome to Book Country! So glad to have you here.
Your book sounds amazing! And no, you're definitely not the first member to wonder what section of the proverbial bookstore their book should go. I'm thinking Mari's on the right track with Paranormal Romance--seems like that would be a good area of the Genre Map to check out first. Maybe Paranormal Mystery and Comic Fantasy as well? Check out the Landmark Titles for each of those categories and see if you can imagine your book sitting on a shelf next to them. What does everyone else think? I might be totally off-base here.
Let me know if I can be any help to you as you get to know the Book Country site. And update us on what you decide about your book's literary category!

Here's the test. A romance is about the growing relationship between two people. It can be on Mars, Under the ocean, or in a strange town. But if the focus is on the romance of the two people involved, it's a romance.
If the focus is on solving the problems the protagonist is having, while at the same time getting the couple together, it's probably not.
Romance comes in lots of flavors and subgenres, but in all of them the focus is on the relationship.
