To help with my project, defining what my audience may like, I decided to ask my family – and acquaintances of my family – and ask them questions about my project. I wanted to know if people from range of different ages would enjoy reading my book and determine my audience age range.
1) What genre(s) do you like?
Jemma – 24 years old – Family Member: Fantasy, Animation, Crime, Documentaries
Stephen – 32 years old – Family Member: Likes everything – mostly fantasy and action – apart from romance
Daniel – 23 years old – Friend of Jemma: Fantasy and History
Josh – 24 years old – Jemma’s Boyfriend : Fantasy, horror, history and documentaries
Sophie – 23 years old – Jemma’s friend: Documentaries and Conspiracy
2) Would you be willing to read a book that contains history?
Jemma: I will give it a go, though I am not really into history
Stephen: I do not like reading books
Sophie: Well, I enjoy reading so I will definitely give it a go
Daniel: As I am a fan of reading and history, yes.
Josh: History is one of my passions, so yes.
