Imagine you knew what "themes" or "tropes" show the highest sales? Of course, you can still write what you feel like writing. But you would do so with the reader's preferences in the back of your mind.

We were able to measure the popularity of certain themes, characters, tropes by linking textual information from the book titles and book descriptions with sales rank information.

Sounds complicated? - Well, it was. But you can just enjoy the results. You can now find answers to these questions:

  • What are the most popular themes and market niches in cozy mystery? (We reveal trending sub-markets that go beyond the official Amazon bestseller lists for Animal Cozy, Culinary Cozy, Crafts & Hobbies Cozy.)
  • What are the most popular heroes or characters used in the bestselling books?
  • What are the locations or venues of the high-selling cozy mystery plots?
  • What occasions do the most popular "cozies" center around (i.e. wedding, trip, funeral, cruise, party, etc.?)
  • What are the most popular crimes? Well, murder is one, of course, but what else is there?
  • What is the latest trend in cozy mystery that takes the bestseller lists by storm right now?This market research finally brings some objectivity into what is trending and what is not in this genre.
