I attended Lori Foster's reader event in Cincinnati this past weekend and had such a lovely time meeting readers. If you ever have a chance to go, I highly recommend it. Low key, great food, wonderful company. But most of all lots and lots of talk about books and heroes. I realized as an author I focus on the heroine too much in my stories and I came home resolved to give my readers more of what they want. Those hunky men!
I found a photo of the hero from my work in progress, ex-Navy SEAL, Dade Vega.
Dade is all dark and twisty. His mother died when he was a kid. His father was a drug dealer. Dade ended up in some not so great fosters homes. He doesn't trust anyone, except his foster brother and fellow Navy SEAL, Red Daggett. Now, Red's gone missing in the small town of Cupid, Texas after sending Dade a coded Mayday text. Dade comes to town on a mission. Find Red and get the hell out of Cupid, ASAP. But Dade never counted on cheery Natalie McClearly and the snap-crack sizzle of love at first sight...
So what do you think? Should I pay more attention to the heroes and less attention to my heroines?
