It’s that time of the year! Beginning next week I’ll hold my annual “Hero Poll” in which I post archetypes of main male characters with examples pulled from my books and ask you to vote for your favorites! In example, last year one of the voting options was for the “Strong-Silent Type” and the examples were Severin from Beauty and the Beast and Arion from Red Rope of Fate.
It’s meant to be fun so we can see who is the most popular protagonist, but it’s also really useful for me because it helps me get an idea of what you guys like and what you want more of. I’m still going to hold that poll–with additions from all the new books I’ve written since then–but this year I’m going to have a second poll, and I need your help!
The second poll will be a list of hero archetypes I haven’t yet used, and you’ll get a chance to vote for the ones you want to see the most. This is where I need you to chime in! In order for me to make that second poll, I need a list of voting options. So far I’ve come up with: the childhood friend, the older-brother type, and the anti-hero. What archetypes am I missing? I posed this question to my Facebook Champions last night, and so far they’ve added the alpha male archetype, and the tortured romantic. (Tortured romantic meaning he doesn’t feel he’s worthy of love, but he is sweet and gentle.)
Give a shout in the comment section with the archetypes you want/like, and I’ll try to include it! Thanks in advance, Champions! I can’t wait to see who you vote for next week.
