Finding your readership as an author is daunting when you are jumping between genres and trying to go against the grain and have an older character be the focus. A recent review on Net Galley made me feel like my Silver Reads approach is not all that crazy.
Thank you Carole Z:
I enjoy science fiction/dystopian lit, but rarely — if ever — find characters that are older than teenagers. Days of Future Found is a novel with “mature” and interesting characters. Ellie, the main protagonist is a woman of 60+. She’s lively, interesting and detailed. The premise of “Days of Future Found” examines the fate of older people in a post-climate change world. I enjoyed reading about the Ellie’s world and the people within it. I’d an enjoy a sequel to see how Ellie and company fare.
So it is exactly three years to the day that I started Days of Future Found..maybe it is time to reassess starting that sequel!
