So, in like two seconds of my last post, I know the answer. Of course crime novels written by women sell less than ones written by men. Why? Because plenty of research shows women are dismissed by men and by women. Women are less serious, less talented, more inclined to sentimentality, more likely to be bitchy and irritable and manipulative.
A woman’s chances of being read by anyone — whether male or female — are smaller than the chances of a man being read.
So, GANI & SEAN is now written by me, and my name is Jack Winter.
Most likely before I go to sleep tonight, I will have crossed the ‘finish line’ in Camp NaNoWriMo. My finish line is set at 50K in 30 days. As of right now, I’ve written 49,719 words toward GANI & SEAN, my novel.
The novel is not done, however. I have several challenging problems to solve before the closing sentence is written.
