Romance Genre Heroes
This is also germaine because Zach in Ghost Seer needs to be more heroic, I believe. One of my crit buddies said he (crit buddy), liked that Zach needed more work, but my first reaction is "he's too weak, that won't keep me readers." So I am basing MY reactions on what I think my readers prefer. That is absolutely all right, but it IS self-limiting. Has my genre expanded and I'm not catching up?
