I was doing a little book browsing today and I clicked on the "Genre Fiction" tab of the Fiction section. Right below Horror, I noticed something I'd never noticed before.

Men's Adventure

What in the Sam hill is Men's Adventure and how would it differ from the Action and Adventure category above?

Seriously? Have you read women's genre fiction?

I meant "more sex" than in the "Action/Adventure" category. I know no "men's" book is going to have more sex than a bodice-ripper. Cruder sex, maybe, but not more. ;)

Hey, it ain't just the bodice rippers anymore...but I get your point.

I have no idea what men's adventure is, but I am currently reading Gone For a Soldier and enjoying it. But then, I also loved Outlander series and am a huge James Bond movie fan, so I guess I may just be weird. :p

Oh yes, my husband also calls me a computer geek.

You're not weird, just eclectic. :D

I always take "geek" as a great compliment - geeks rock! LOL!

I was actually thinking of moving my books to the Men's Adventure category. So far, only men have read and liked them. Why doesn't that make sense? ???
That's not true....Sheryl was raving about your book. And what about Sailor?

Thanks, I like eclectic better.

I agree, Geeks definitely rule. Especially after my husband's uncle spent $100 for the computer guy to try unsucccessfully to fix his internet connection and I was able to just upgrade his version of MSN and now it works like a charm. I didn't even charge him.

Leslie,

I apologize for making such a flatfooted statement; I usually try to be slipperier than that. ;D

I must have missed Sheryl's comment; I'll try to find it to thank her properly.

Jeff
Oh....wait a minute. I might be way off the mark. I think Sheryl gave a super positive review to Mike's book (In Her Name). I'm sorry, Jeff -- I didn't mean to mix up our two indies authors like that. But I still think Sailor was reading yours and was enjoying it.

Leslie slinks off, hanging head in shame...

I actually knew that Sheryl had claimed to be Mike's number one fan and was letting you off the hook. :)

Sailor doesn't fit any gender generalization insofar as she likes guns, explosions and the American flag as much as she likes to play Kindle dress-up. (I'll bet I get a smoking PM for that comment.) :p
