Recently I had a conversation on Facebook with my mom’s cousin. He had two complaints about my website.
“Why don’t you review books written by men and why don’t you have any male reviewers on your site?”
I explained that while we review Urban Fantasy, our main focus is Romance…thus hardly any male authors. But we DO review male authors, it’s just hard finding them in the romance genre but urban fantasy is rife with males. I named a few for him to check out, since he reads mostly high fantasy. Would I like to read more male authors? Hell yes, if you know of any I should be reading, leave them in the comments. Off the top of my head I can think of a few:
My List of Male Authors to Check Out
But the male reviewer thing, yeah I have a big issue with that. I would LOVE to have a male reviewer join our site but good luck finding one. There are a few out there, some are really into it and some are there for the attention (yes, it happens). I don’t know if there’s less men reading or what, I’ve had some great conversations on Twitter with males who read. So why aren’t they blogging?

What male reviewers do you love? Which do you avoid? Why do you think there aren’t many males blogging about books?
