Clearly women like this book.

So it seems, perhaps because men tend to read books written by men and about men?

Jarred, I had the same thought. Does this point toward the stereotype that "man on cover = fantasy for general audience" and "woman on cover = fantasy for female audience?" Do (male) readers see a "female on cover" book as "chick lit?"

As one of the contest winners, I was shocked when a copy of Naamah's Blessing showed up on my doorstep, given that I haven't been online at all recently. One day later, I'm almost finished with the book - thank you so much for hosting this contest!

And to answer the previous commentators on this post, I only got into Jacqueline Carey after her writing was referred to me by a number of people whose book opinions I trusted - the majority of whom were men. I'm not saying that sample is necessarily representative, nor does it address the stereotype itself, but I do think it's safe to say that there are a lot of men these days who don't think twice about picking up a book with a female protagonist.
