Okay, get your minds outta the gutter, LOL! I mean in terms of what you read and write, does the gender of the main character matter to you?
Since we're all crime fiction writers, I'd love to see what you think. As readers, do you prefer the MC to be of a certain gender for you to be interested in the book?
As writers, do you prefer to write your MC as a certain gender? If so, please explain why.
Now to answer the questions, sex doesn't matter to me when it comes to the MC. I like female and male main characters. As long as the books are written in 3rd person I'm happy. Sorry, just not a first person chick, LOL.
I also write male and female MC's. It all depends on what I think fits the story best. I have the best of both worlds with the detective series I'm doing. The MC's are a female and male cop team and so they both get plenty of attention in the book and at times is shown from each other's eyes.
How about you guys? What do you prefer or does it not matter?
