What are the characteristics of the Gothic Romance?
Desdemona Wrote:Personally, I like the Byronic hero, as long as he's not too alpha male. :0)

Oh, trust me, he's by no chance an alpha male! Which frustrates me sometimes, since I'm not as submissive as he, so he irritates me sometimes. He's a tormented, tortured romantic suffering one tragedy after another.

The basic story is more or less...

Set in the middle, to late Victorian era, and is basically the 'prologue' to a supernatural romance novel a friend and I started to write a while back. Sheer entertainment, on my part. I really want to have a small volume published for myself with a collection of my incompleted short stories, or plots, as well as poetry and character analysis.

The story focuses on a 21 year old gentleman, Jan, who goes back to England to tend to his sick mother, along with his cousin (and former fiance), Mina. His mother is being cared for by a mysterious woman, Lady Chandelle, who has her eye on him.

First little segment can be found here, if you're interested. I always love hearing what people think!
