Come on Over…
…to Chick Lit Writers today! My fabulous critique partner Sandy James is talking about writing older female characters–women with more experience that bring vibrancy and attitude to a story. She’d love to hear your viewpoint and so would I. One of the novels my agent is currently submitting for me is about a 37-year-old woman who rediscovers a lost love.
Do you like reading about heroines who are over forty? Do you believe romance still blooms even if you aren’t twenty-one and starry-eyed? Come on by and talk to Sandy about being as old as you feel. You could win a copy of her newest novel, TWIST OF FATE, due out October 25 from BookStrand!
Thanks so much for the shout-out, Nan!! <3 you.
I like older heroines. For one thing, it feels more ‘realistic’ that this is true love. What does a 20 year old know about herself or life? An older woman knows who she is, which is very appealing.
