It is said that all things are temporary and circulate throughout. With that in mind, it seems things are about to change.
On Kristen Nelson's blog, she posted a note from a meeting she had with Random House. The part that perked my attention was, "She also expressed a longing for female heroines that aren’t killing machines."
This type of heroine has been the mainstay for a long time and I am so glad the publishing taste has been satiated. Not that there isn't still a desire by some readers for this, but I am thrilled the publishing houses are becoming sensitive to reader's demands for a different heroine type.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you!
