Calling all Literate Male Action/Adventure Fans
Just had a brainstorm of sorts, after buying a Mack Bolan novel for my shiny new Kindle. I'm considering guest posts/blogs/reviews of men's fiction. If interested, comment on this post or just email me with a book review and your name, links, short bio and/or whatever you consider relevant (I'll be the ultimate judge of that).
I ask that the review be coherent for literate English-speakers, and free of unnecessary profanity (try using italics or bold if you need to emphasize something). I do read, and enjoy, genres that don't necessarily integrate with men's fiction, but I'd like to limit this to dude-lit of an adrenaline-stoking variety. So yeah, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery is all fine as long as the plot has action and it is written for a male audience.
What do I mean by the requirement to have action? I don't mean that character development and plot have to be anemic. But, for instance, the Kinky Friedman mysteries I've read would not qualify, as it seems the protagonist spends half of each book staring at his cappuccino machine. "I cradled the blower on the left." Ahem.
So let me know if you're interested. Operators are standing by.
