To Each Their Own
I also like coming of age and its opposite, stories of the crone. But again, I bet people don't think that is the same market.
I like quiet thoughtful bucolic fantasy and wild-ride urban fantasy.
So I'd like to twist that advice a little and say know your genre or subgenre and be aware of the expectations. Let the reader know up front what the story entails, be it ogres, werewolves, telepaths, aliens, space battles, quests, whatever. If it's clear what the story will contain, it will attract willing readers. Provided, of course, that you write the very best story you can.
