[h2]Question of the Week Episode 10 Responses:[/h2]
While listeners can leave comments on the website each week, answers come in from various other platforms as well (and we can only read a few on the show). Here are all the responses we got to the question “What’s a story you want to read that you haven’t heard yet? Or, what’s that new thing you’re looking for?” Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer.
- Cristina: What I’d like to read isn’t something that doesn’t exist, it’s something there isn’t enough of – novels with older MCs, there seems to be a plethora of YA or NA, not to speak of vampires and shifters and not so many stories of middle aged men who have a completely different POV, they’re working, having the normal day to day problems, maybe sometimes exes, m or f, maybe children.
- Scott: I want to see some gay werewolf hockey playing romance!
- Gillian: More International stories! Or stories where the MCs are not from the US or England — there is literally an entire world out there, and it is not reflected in our fiction and that makes me sad.
