Things I wish more books talked about.
That’s an intriguing prompt for today, isn’t it?
Is there anything books don’t talk about these days? If there is I can’t think of any.
But I do wish the books I read would include a few things.
- Main characters who are over the age of 50 ( I believe this is being called SEASONED ROMANCE, peeps)
- More older characters who are real and not caricatures of elderly people
- men who don’t all have chiseled, hard bodies. I happen to love a dad bod. I really do.
- characters who are struggling with daily social angst, mental illness, and the frustrations of raising socially conscious children in this narcissistic and morally corrupt world. Would a book like this even sell?
Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve been pretty satisfied with what I’ve seen in books lately. But like I said, that’s probably just me. Let’s see what some of the other authors in this blog want to see: L&SR
And….just as a quick aside, my book DEARLY BELOVED Is up for BOOK OF THE MONTH on L&SR for the next few days. If you have amoment, you can vote for it here:Book of the Month
