Wonder if there's a literary market for 'bloke-lit'? Stories based around real life that address the mores and instincts of the average male. Where the girls have near-real life tales of sex, shopping, stress, and chocolate; maybe the guys could have something about what goes on in their near-real lives. Sexual frustration, demanding partners, loathing of shopping, male bonding rituals and receding hairlines?

Is there a whole new genre out there? On the chance that there is, I'm toying with a tale I'm calling the 'odd machine' about how a strange family heirloom helps trigger all sorts of unforseen events. The main project is bumbling and stumbling along, and is due for it's first major surgery shortly.
