I also always include humor in my novels. It's just who I am. You'll always find animals (usually dogs and birds) in my books too. Plus, my characters, including those with fur and feathers, often find themselves with a familiar name. Perhaps a family members middle name, or a beloved pet. I named the dachshund in The Earl's Enticement (Soul Mate Publishing May 2014) Kiki after my beloved doxie who died after eating a Waggin Tail Chicken Jerky Treat.
If you can add a touch of humor, your readers will appreciate it.
