My novel, Give Up the Ghost, has a set-up that might feel familiar to fans of paranormal fiction. There’s a main character with supernatural ties. There’s a character of the opposite sex who enters her life and shakes it up. You know where this is going, right?

If you guessed that they end up in a heated romance, you would actually be wrong. But I wouldn’t blame you for assuming that. Before I even started writing the book, I knew a romance would be the expected outcome. It was very deliberate that I chose not to meet that expectation.

Click to find out my reasons, and why I’d like to see more friendship of all sorts in fiction.

Great post, Megan! I love reading books with great female friendships. How to Be Bad and 20 Boy Summer are good examples of that dynamic. I've tried to make sure that the girls in my WIPs have conversations that aren't just about boys, too.

Yes! 20 Boy Summer did have a great, central friendship. I have to read How to Be Bad, too.
