I’ve been reading a couple of good reviews of Mist (pointed out by my publicist at Tor, Leah Withers), and one of them has raised several interesting questions about the preferences of urban fantasy readers. (Reviews can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/kqcots5 and here: http://thesecretsanctuarybooks.blogspot.com/2013/06/arc-review-mist-by-susan-krinard.html.)
So, I have a couple of questions for you readers who like urban fantasy …
#1: Do you like the writer to “set” the story in detail … i.e., street names, landmarks, etc., or would you rather it be kept vague?
#2: How much eroticism is comfortable for you? Do you prefer no sexual/sensual element at all, or is there a limit for you? Are you bothered by relationships that aren’t strictly male/female?
Thanks for your response! This is more of a curiosity issue, though if I discovered that most readers don’t like the detail in the settings (I had thought most did), I can always tone it down in books #2 and #3. I probably will, anyway, since I have established the setting.
