A New Series with a Guy Protagonist?
Question: Could you write a series similar to the Alice series with a guy as the protagonist? Maybe you could even write it from the perspective of someone who lives in the same place as Alice--Elizabeth's brother, for instance. That way, you could include some of the already-known characters.= Phyllis replied: Actually, I tried that some years ago. The first book was called "Being Danny's Dog," and the second was called "Danny's Desert Rats." But neither sold well enough for the series to continue. The editor felt that guys weren't as interested in relationships and feelings and such as girls, and needed more action than I had in the stories, though I thought I had plenty. But a few years ago I wrote a book called "Cricket Man" with a protagonist I think you would like. Read that book and see what you think.
