Man-friendly author invades the romance novel genre

I’ve always had unusual ideas for promoting men’s issues, and now I’ve got myself right into maybe the wildest idea yet! I’ve entered a romance novel competition, and I need a lot more votes before Friday if I’m going to make a showing there!

This is the First Chapters Romance competition at Gather, and the Grand Prize is a publishing contract with Simon & Schuster, which is not something to be sneezed at. Imagine the romance genre being invaded by a man-friendly author! There are no “beta male” characters in my books, no deeply-flawed bad boys, just (mostly) decent human beings who sometimes turn out to be heroes. As in real life.

I figure a lot of you have already joined up at Gather to check out the Men’s Issues Group, so why not take it one step further and vote for my book here. Leave a comment if you like! You will have my undying gratitude…

Great Concept

Anything male friendly gets a 10. Keep up the good work!

What do you need me to do?

Whatever it is -- as long as it is ethical -- consider it done.

Maybe it is counting all the votes, it just means..

I think it just means "on a scale of 1-10" or "out of 10 possible" - like a school GPA would be "3.5/4.0"

Sorry Trudy ...I Don't Read Fiction

Well Trudy I've always enjoyed desertlight and your polemical observations.

But, I just don't read romance fiction.

VAWA cured me of that.

So, whatever you have to say...

I just no longer care about women's fantasies.

I'm sure yours are redeeming indeed. ;-)

True romance is dead.

Women killed it. Women began killing off actual love waaay before feminism was even thought of by exploiting men.
