I've been thinking about how to answer this question for some time now. It's about categorization, and I think that writers are sometimes the worst people to ask about what kind of books they write, because they may be too close to the story to tell. Usually, I think that categorizing is best done by the book's publisher, because it's basically about marketing: Where does the book fit best in the bookstore, so that it can be found by people who would want to read it? However, there are some problems with that theory, too.
