Got interesting feedback from a new reader of, both, Through Better & Worse and To Have & To Hold. She read them back to back. She suggested I was more sympathetic to my male characters than to my female characters. I asked her why she thought that, and she told me: “…because you give them so many good scenes.”
I scratched my head on that one, a bit, then asked her if I didn’t give my females good scenes. She said, I did, but that she was more used to books where the female got most of the good, juicy scenes, and the men “not so much.”
Then she gave me a real grin, because she said: “I got more giggles and laughs from seeing how the men reacted. The books are great.”
Too bad she didn’t post reviews. Oh well. Most don’t.
