Fellow writer: I not really into romance novels, but I do enjoy a touch of romance in the stories I read. I love post-apocalyptic fiction, classic african american stuff, new age and political novels. I've written four novels and self-published two so far. I am up tonight, can't sleep. I not sure what makes a page-turner, so I render stories that I want to read but can't find on the shelves of bookstores. Perhaps, by answering your question, I will sell more books. It's a thought. Well, good luck with the Great American Page-turner! Pharaoh.
