Since my book is sci-fi it's almost like a love/hate relationship. My plot starts off in the present time today, and ends up in the far future kinda like futurama. At the start there was a sorta romantic scene that ends up in tragedy. I had a few girls and guys read my first part of my book. Just girls gott hooked in the beginning then lose interest when he ends up in the future. The guys enjoy reading the far future part especially it being about war. Most of the book involves war, political turmoil, people being enslaved (a other thread I started about), and little romance which develops later on in the story. I'm trying to balance both interest of both genders, and writing the plot how I want it to be. All the girls seem to care about is romance, and love everything is irrelevant.
