My other books all have male main characters. I don’t know why I write from a male POV unless it’s because after my dad died, my older sister took over as Mom, and I did the Dad stuff. I was a daddy’s girl before Dad died and after that, sort of a tom boy. At least I played with trolls instead of barbies, climbed trees a lot, and my best friend was a boy until he moved away. At six, I couldn’t understand why our mothers wouldn’t let us have sleepovers.
In spite of marrying a guy, raising 4 sons and helping them all the way to their Eagle Scout Awards, I can’t say I really know the mind of man. I read a male writer’s blog post saying it’s all about power. Is it like that for every guy? Yea or nay, I need male readers who don’t hate poetry or puns. My hubby doesn’t mind the first and even writes it for my birthday or Christmas, but he says reading my chapters with puns give him headaches. Isn’t that supposed to be my excuse? I think it’s just because he’d rather watch wrestling on TV. No headache from watching noses get bashed in, no way. And no headache from getting close enough to take pictures like this while fishing in Alaska recently.
So if you’re a guy who read Piers Anthony’s Xanth series or Terry Pratchett’s Disworld, you might like Erth Won in spite of the fact it’s got an SF explanation for the puns rather than magic. Warning, it’s not all fun and games because I wanted to attract reluctant readers. You can see what it’s about by clicking on my book website tab.
Next up, I also want male agent recommendations or at least recommendations for agencies with both male and female agents who represent children’s through YA. I haven’t seen a lot a men who do this, and I don’t want to have to switch agents every time I switch age groups. Please give me your best recommendations and by the time I finish rewriting my query, maybe I’ll have a better idea where to send them. Thanks!
