Consistancy with Genres

The majority of my works revolve around romance however it is constantly changing within that genre. YA- Adult Romance, High School Romance, Paranormal Romance, Romantic Thrillers, and more to come I’m sure. I found this website online stating that not sticking to one genre would be disastrous to an authors career because the readers wouldn’t stick behind them. The author they were referring to had switched from one genre to another that were not even close to each other. I can’t remember right now but it was something like crime thriller to historical poetry. I wonder if my genre hopping would have the same plunder regardless that it is all still under the heading of Romance. Does this hold any merit?

    It depends on the reader and the author. You can always dabble in other genres while spending most of your time in one. There’s really no harm in showing that you have more than one trick up your sleeve. I guess I can see his point that your average reader refuses to wander out of their comfort zone, but it’s really hard to put a definite stance on it.
