Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Science fiction and fantasy. Honestly, i like the inde published content more than the big name published works. There are more surprises to be found there than the formula stuff we have all been fed for years. Formula writing is probably one of the biggest turn offs of fantasy writing in my opinion. By the time you get through the first chapter, you know. The good guy ends up king and wins the girl unless its a tragedy. The actions and sequence of events are so predictable, you can skip a hundred pages and still know what happened.
Another big turn off for me is the way some women portray men. Eight pack studs with perpetual hard-ons only when they are around the protagonist. when is the last time any woman heard a man growl in their ear? Or the 110 pound super model who beats the crap out of a 200 lb man to save the eight pack stud from certain death.

i love Sara King and highly recommend all of her books. Fantastic writer.
Ilona Andrews with clean sweep, great read.
Neil Gaiman for some very imaginative off the wall fantasy.
Lois McMaster Bujold if writing style is as important to you as the story.
Hugh Howley with the wool series. great read
Patrick Rothfuss name of the wind - great story and writing style.
