Welcome to Faith 'n Fiction Saturday! If this is your first time participating, please read this post. It will tell you everything you need to know!Today's Question: Christian fiction is growing as a market, but there are still many unexplored storylines and under-represented genres. What issues or ideas would you like to see tackled from a Christian worldview? Or, what setting would you like to see? Which genres would you like to see more books?
Oh I love to read christian fiction but there are always things I want to see more of in the books I read.I would love to see more chick lit. I know they say that it is losing popularity but I still enjoy reading Chick lit. I love the sassy characters and the humor that you find in that genre.
I would also like to see families that are faced with special needs children continue to appear in novels. I just don't want to see it limited to certain disabilities. It is wonderful to see reflections of our own lives in the novels that we read.
Lastly I want to see Christian fiction tackle real life issues. It is not always a rosy world out there and well lets just speak clearly the temptation is real. Our teens face it and out singles face the temptation of sex before marriage. Michelle Sutton and Shelly Adina have both addressed these issues openly in there YA fiction. We all know that attraction is important and usually it is physical attraction that draws us to others. Sometimes I feel like the christian fiction market tries to brush over this with a rainbow paintbrush. Its real. Let's deal with it. There is a real struggle that can be honestly portrayed between the pages of a novel.
