Reader SOS part 2 Win a $25.oo Gift certificate to B&N

Hey guys! I need your help again. I turned in Lesson One of my romance course to my editor and she LOVED the snippets of comments from readers. Thank you all. If you're due a free book and never e-mailed me with your address, please do so @ loriwilde@aol.com.

Now, for lesson number two, I'm covering character archetypes and I need help coming up with the names of authors who best write certain types of characters. This time, I'll put the names of everyone who posts into a hat and draw a winning name. The winner will receive an e-mail $25.00 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. Just tell me who you think which author personifies the following types of characters in her work and then e-mail me to tell me you want in the drawing.

Top Dog Alpha Hero

The Tortured Hero

The Honorable Warrior

The Daring Adventurer

For the heroines:

The Girl Next Door

The Mystic

The Woman Warrior

The Caring Nurturer

Authors, you can play along too! If you excel at a particular archetype, throw your hat into the ring. You'll get free publicity out of it in my romance course.

Contest is open until September 5th.

For some reason the heroes are easier than the heroines.

The Girl Next Door: maybe Erin McCarthy or LuAnn McLane

The Mystic: not sure

The Woman Warrior: Jackie Ivie

The Caring Nurturer: Anna DeStefano

Jenny,

I think the heroes are easier because we tend of think of the heroines as ourselves and it's hard to put a label on yourself. Maybe I'm off base here, but I had trouble with the heroines too. I thought of Lori Foster as wrting great Girl Next Door Types.

Top Dog Alpha Hero - Shannon McKenna and Tara Janzen

The Tortured Hero - Tara Janzen, the men in her "Crazy" series fall into that category

The Girl Next Door - I'll second Erin McCarthy

Warrior Women - Allison Brennan writes some pretty tough women

I could probably come up with characters but authors?
The authors I read try to mix it up a bit.
Not all their heroes are tortured.
Not every novel has the daring adventurer.
