In honor of our Blogiversary, Alexandra Richland (author of Starlight, Gilded Cage and Frontline) has drafted two guest posts related to a subject near and dear to a reader’s heart – the Alpha Male.
The first installment discussed the traits that make the Alpha Male such an attractive and desirable character. If you missed that post, you can read it here.
This second installment discusses the paths Alpha Males follow – the heroic and the anti-heroic.
Many thanks to Alexandra for her insights and for providing well-developed examples in the gorgeous forms of Trenton Merrick, the Alpha Male in her novel Frontlineand Aidan Evans, the Alpha Male in her story, Starlight.
Today I wanted to discuss and share a little of this and that…some quickie thoughts if u will. Altho I must confess I don’t normally advocate for quickies…sometimes a quickie is just what you need…for the moment 😉
Titles – When I first started doing reviews and other posts one of the hardest things for me to do was come up with a title. I knew I wanted it to be something catchy, and I wanted it to be something that would make people want to read whatever it was. Reviews don’t really lend themselves to that however, unless I want to make it so long it takes up 2 lines…Problem with that is I never liked how it looked at the top of the post. A secondary problem is that it makes the link sooooooooooooo long. I kind of gave up being creative on that, and pretty much just stick with the standard book blogger format, boring tho it may be.
