Guest author: Charles E. Yallowitz – We’re Not Together: Male and Female Friendships

A fun guest post on a rather odd topic.

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Thank you to Sue Vincent for letting me write a guest post to help promote my newest book Legends of Windemere: Ritual of the Lost Lamb.  This is the 13th book of my series and it’s where things go downhill for the heroes. Luke Callindor, the longest running hero, has been captured by their greatest enemy and they have to save him before he breaks. To do this, Nyx decides to use a forbidden ritual that requires some traveling and racing against a new agent of their enemy who is out to stop them.

    I liked that post- and agree 100%.

    It’s a lot like how I see Fitz & The Fool. The depth of their relationship has nothing to do with romance. I always laugh when I read folks fixated over The Fools true gender, who cares? The relationship isn’t about sex or romance.

    Which is actually really very funny because the top selling fantasy books ever are about friendships that transcend romance. They may have a romance in them but it’s not what the books are about.

    Harry Potter 450m +
    Lord of the Rings 150m +
    Chronicles of Narnia 120m +

    700,000,000 ++ Books sold about friendship/fellowship through trials.

    • True. Yet, two of those three are of same sex friendships. Harry and Hermione come to mind with how fans wanted them together. Wasn’t there something a while back where Rowling said that would have worked out? I do agree about the romance as a subplot point. Some readers seem to focus on that instead of the adventure at times.
