LGBT Fiction Event Day 23 : My Top 10 Gay Romance Short Stories by Shae Connor (Incl. Grand prize giveaway)

LGBT Fiction Event Day 23 : My Top 10 Gay Romance Short Stories by Shae Connor (Incl. Grand prize giveaway)

  I’m a short story writer. I’ve pretty much accepted that about myself. Out of my 15 published stories, all but one have been under 25,000 words. I can write novels—I’ve done it once, and I’m nearly done with another—but it’s a long process. I don’t dare promise anything novel length by a certain date, but I have no trouble meeting deadlines for short stories and novellas. I realize that… Keep Reading »

LGBT Event Day 22 : MM author Christa Tomlinson hosts a Character Interview with her Swat boys and a giveaway

  Hello everybody. Teresa, your favorite romance blogger, here. For today’s interview, I went on a ride along with Sergeant Logan Pierce and Corporal Clay Foster from The Sergeant. I loved talking to these two men. Sergeant Pierce has this air of cool command while Corporal Foster was surprisingly playful for a cop. I met up with the two members of Houston Police SWAT in the garage while their team… Keep Reading »

Release Day Guest Post : Tibby Armstrong won’t blame her characters for the BDSM in (what could be) the last in the Hollywood Series! (Incl.Giveaway)

  I’ll tell you a secret. Authors like to pretend their characters are in charge of their stories. We enjoy the fiction that our creations possess us, run away with us, make us say and do things on the page the would bring a scarlet blush to our cheeks if we had been responsible for the story. This excuse is really a not-so-new twist on “the devil made me do… Keep Reading »

Classic literature is choc full of LGBT characters…many refuse to acknowledge their presence or try to have certain pieces banned because of this. So…here is my list of a few awesome classic lit titles featuring… Keep Reading »

LGBT Fiction Event Day 19 : Character interview from Benoît Grenier from ‘Moonlight & Love Songs’ by Alyssa Linn Palmer (Includes Paperback Giveaway)

  I sit in a dim corner of the rundown jazz club, Le Chat Rouge, just off the Boulevard St. Germain, in the heart of Paris’s Left Bank. It’s early yet, and the cleaner is just finishing the last of his mopping, carefully scrubbing the small entryway. A bartender chops lemons, and the tart citrus scent briefly overcomes the stale scent of cigarettes and dust. I’m with the club’s pianist,… Keep Reading »

LGBT Fiction Event Day 18 : Vanessa North talks Demisexuality in her new MM book and offers an exciting eARC giveaway

LGBT Fiction Event Day 18 : Vanessa North talks Demisexuality in her new MM book and offers an exciting eARC giveaway

  Erotic content is a big part of my writing, and I don’t think that’s ever going to change. Yet, I decided to write a book about a gay character who falls under the asexuality umbrella. Demisexuals do not experience primary sexual attraction—they must form an intense emotional connection first. When I first came across a description of demisexuality, I dropped everything and read everything I could find about primary… Keep Reading »

LGBT Fiction Event Day 17 : Zoe Rider interviews her rock star characters & offers a giveaway

  The news broke over the weekend: musicians Brian March and Dylan Denault, founding members of Attack From Space, are “together.” Fans have had much to say about it—not surprisingly—but the guys themselves have until now given a “no comment” to the press. I’m not sure what to expect when I arrive at their rehearsal space. It’s not Brian or Dylan who answer the door but Dylan’s sister, Kelsey. She… Keep Reading »

  Hey everyone, I’m Reesa Herberth. Thanks to Nix for having me! I decided to do a collection of songs that represented the main characters and feel in the Ylendrian Empire space opera universe, and I’ve created a playlist (below) so you can take a whirl through my personal soundtracks for the books. First, from the Rainbow Award-winning space opera caper, The Slipstream Con, we’ve got our three main characters:… Keep Reading »

LGBT Fiction Event Day 15 : Amber Belldene explains how reader empathy can make romance erotic (Incl. series giveaway)

LGBT Fiction Event Day 15 : Amber Belldene explains how reader empathy can make romance erotic (Incl. series giveaway)

  Here’s a little secret about me: pretty much anything will turn me on, if it turns on a character I love. In my sordid reading life, I’ve been shocked, embarrassed, and even frightened by what’s aroused me in an especially well-written story. This might be an occupational hazard of mine.  I’m a priest in the Episcopal Church (the American branch of the C of E) and I’m one of… Keep Reading »
