I am a Traitor to the #OscarsSoPretty Movement

It dawns on me that just about every villain, evildoer or henchman in my Zombie Western books is ugly.

Sigh.  I am a traitor to #OscarsSoPretty

This has been difficult. So much time is spent on writing pages that, if I’ve done my job correctly, will be breezed through by the reader.  Within the novel, there’s only so much time/space to explain your characters.

Unfortunately, “ugly guy=evil” is something people quickly recognize even though it is totally wrong. But “really handsome guy who had a tortured past and became evil because of X reason” is more than people care to hear about.

Oh I feel awful. I have betrayed the #OscarsSoPretty movement.
