With our site updates being well on their way, the good news just keep on coming! You have requested it for a while, so I’m excited to announce that Multi Genre Selections will be available to every creator soon.
Here is a little preview of what it will look like in your creator Dashboard:
And here is an example of what it will look like on the Series Page:

You can select up to three genres and then pick your main genre from the dropdown menu underneath. This will help readers understand much more quickly what your story is all about, and give you an additional tool to better communicate with your audience.
On the browse page, your series will continue to be listed under the main genre - they won’t also appear under the sub genres (same rule applies to premium content also). We are reviewing if we can potentially introduce a multi-genre filtering system in the future.
However, we all know that with great power comes great responsibility. With this feature being unlocked for you, we ask you to correctly categorize your novels and comics. This will likely mostly affect creations that fall into our relatively new genres BL, GL and LGBTQ+. If your Cover calls out a specific genre, make sure to select this as your Main Genre in your settings. Should a series stay potentially incorrectly categorized, we will work with the creator to update it. Please be mindful of your categorization and help readers find your amazing work easier.
I hope you’re excited about this feature and already think about which sub-genres you’re going to select! We will provide you with a note on the creator dashboard once Multi Genres are available on the site!
