The short answer for me is no.
I donít care where the characters come from, their ethnicity, their heritage, their culture, or how they look.
If you can make good characters, I also donít care where you, the author, comes from, or your affiliations. I also donít care about your political associations.
For me itís about the writing. I can usually tell in the first few pages but sometimes it takes longer. And if someone I trust says: ďdude, I know the beginning is a little slow (or whatever), but once it gets going itís awesome,Ē Iíll read it.
Although... I might be looking for something different from the general public.
