Well, yes I do. Apparently, they have me pegged. And apparently, I should be more aware. Once I started looking, I could see that even my grocery store is aiming for a target demographic. A pastor who preaches to a church full of college students about what to do in retirement isn't going to have a full church very long. He has a target demographic too.
Now, I know that there is so much more to me than suburban soccer mom of two. I have interests and hobbies that are completely different than the soccer mom of two who lives next door to me, but I do think fundamentally, we might have more in common than we think. Here at this blog, we are all different ages, but we have a love of the Lord and love of romance that brings us together.
That said, I'm curious about "us." Who are we? Readers? Writers? Do we read romance? Suspense? Both? Only Christian fiction, or a mix? Leave a comment about yourself--in generic terms, if you like. Suburban, urban, rural, grandmother, mother, teenager, student, mom. Tell me what you're reading now.
I'll get us started on this very un-scientific poll. At the end of the day, I'll give away a copy of Smoke Screen to a random commenter, so please leave your email address, if you'd like to win it. Thanks!
