I have thought further about my purpose in creating this work and what I hope to achieve.
I want the series to be lightweight reading material, to remind readers about the typical “female dilemmas” in literature by interpreting classic literary images and by extension, “why we need female writers and works from a female perspective”.
The approach: each book selects a character/pair of characters and explains through their stories the limitations of creating a female character or the hindrance (the other/self) that female writers encounter when they write.
I redesigned the format and size.
If I were to continue with the series, as readers, you prefer to keep the whole series in the same style (size/binding style), or would it be acceptable to have a different style (in a larger outer package)?
