2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
What an odd question for a writing meme. I have as many characters as I have stories. Times lots.
I don't really have a preference in terms of what gender I write from. I tend to write on limited subjective third person, which should mean that I'd prefer to write women, but it's all people. Then again, I've written fiction that has six genders. I suppose I like playing with gender stereotypes and play against them.
In other news, my giveaways of Blood Maiden on Goodreads and LibraryThing finished and the books went out.
Interestingly more reaction to the physical book than the electronic. Reviews are what I'd expect. A couple really liked it, a couple were confused unto dislike by the juxtaposition of modern and myth. I did worry as one review that I'm not letting myself respond to indicated that there were copy mistakes that could be fixed by a copy editor, which since it has been copy edited had me wondering if I'd accidentally loaded the wrong version. Thankfully, there's such a thing as Word compare. So, if there are errors, well, it's not because I uploaded the wrong thing.
In complete awesomesauce news a story (the six gendered one) of mine has been translated into Chinese. I'm ridiculously tickled that someone would take the time to translate it.
