Hello everyone! My first post on these forums, hadn't thought to look for a writer's forum until a week ago and found this gold mine! Been reading plenty of stories and posts and really enjoying my self. Always had a desire to write a book, a Fantasy Novel at that. George RR Martin really put me onto the genre, and now I've got about 200 Fantasy/horro/sci-fi books. What I wanted to ask is.. Is there a niche, in a fantasy novel, to have a lead, a main character who is of an evil disposition. When I say main character I mean Rand Al'Thor, or Frodo Bagins. Perhaps even a situation if written well enough, to cheer for this characters evil ways. Is it something people would read? I my self would love to follow such an angle. Some of my favourite characters have been the evil ones, never though have they been the central character. Also does anyone know of any books where this is the case? Any genre, I was once told best way to expand your own writing abilities is to read everything you can get your hands on, so any suggestions would be fantastic. Thanks!
