This blog is for educational purposes (although I feel like I learn just as much from your comments). Dig into the male POV (point of view) for hero and supporting cast, for good guys, bad and inbetween. Find gems or alternate ways of writing male POV.
When I give an opinion, it will be based first on scientific research (I was a research scientist).
THE ROMANTIC NOVELIST
Having temporarily run out of Male POV ideas, I'm blogging about things that will get you rejected by an agent or editor.
Ask a male author about your male character traits or thoughts.
Amazon links to my stories: Autumn Breeze, A More Perfect Union, Double Happiness, The Wolves of Sherwood Forest, Neanderthals and the Garden of Eden can be found down the right side of the blog.

A new critique group, November, 12, 2013
a new critique group:
advantage to joining this group might be that your male characters will become more real,
(if not already).
belong to a general writing critique group which meets every Friday for 3
hours. They’re great but I feel the need for a romance critique group to sharpen a very specialized genre.
RWASD members and others who follow this blog are spread out geographically, I
picture a small online critique group. Maybe a total of four members. There is a
possibility of meeting in person, perhaps on special occasions. I live in La
Costa and can host. Our jobs would be to critique one scene a week and send it
back by the end of the week at the latest and then start over.
romance genre is okay by me. I'm sitting on four contemporary novels right now: some rom coms, some paranormal (actually unexplained phenomena would be more precise). I have written a young adult about Robin and Marian (novella) and multi-protagonist love and adventure story set 100,000 years ago (not strickly a romance).
who sign up should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org not the Blog's email.
Let me know if you want your name shared on this blog or not and a little about
yourself and what you are doing. I’ll choose the three who will join me.
need a name for the group. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I videod my critique group. I picture the new group as three gals and me.
Thanks to a long forgotten but great movie, Twelve Angry Men, 1954-1957, TV, stage, movie.
