How do you define 'classic gothics'?
GothicLover Wrote:Under the general Gothic Romance umbrella I've described above, you could allow the following sub-genres:
*Early Gothics
*Classic Gothic Romance
*Romantic Suspense (as long as the suspense is life threatening and there is a puzzle/mystery)
*Romantic Mystery (as long as there is life-threatening suspense and a developing romance)
*Woman-in-jeopardy Romance (as long as there is a puzzle/mystery)
*Paranormal Romance (as long as there is life-threatening suspense and a puzzle/mystery; this includes werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts, vampires, psychics, etc.)

What do others think?

I think the breakdown may bring in more people, but I think you can lump Romantic Suspense with Romantic Mystery and Woman-in-Jeopardy Romance and call it Romantic Suspense. You'd also have to include horror in the paranormal - not gore, but horror in the sense of possession, the occult, etc.
