Just a Thought

I saw this headline today 

Can Iron Man, the Lone Ranger and Superman Save the Box Office?

and I have to respond. NO.. why because it is the tired and true.. telling the same old story to the same old people. Sure we love these characters but they are movies geared towards men... I have to wonder what in the heck is wrong with Hollywood.. I know it too is run by men but seriously guys get a clue.

What is the number one genre of book sales in today's market... UM Romance books.. Now stop rolling your eyes because basically if it is written by a woman it's called Romance.. but there is such a HUGE variety out there. That I know men would love..

Christien Feehan's Ghostwalkers
Sherrilyn Kenyon's League Series
JR Ward's Black Daggar Brotherhood

to name a few

Other authors that write brilliant Urban Fantasy
Jessa Slade
Rebecca Zanetti
Sara Humphreys
Caris Roane
Elisabeth Naughton
Dianne Duvall
Nalini Singh

then there is the suspense 

Elizabeth Lowell
Julie Garwood 

Of course there is always Nora Roberts... but she was stuck on the LMN channel..sheesh.. if her name was Noel Roberts her books would be blockbuster movies

Honestly the list goes on and on.. these amazing women write these intense, creative, rich and UNIQUE books. Must a writer have his sex organs on the outside to be better writer? I wasn't aware that the penis actually did any of the writing.. 

Too bad we can not storm Hollywood. I say we boycott these sad familiar tunes and demand that someone get a brain..
