I love and am very supportive of the M/M sub genre and its authors. Some of you may not believe this, going by many of my recent posts (rants) 🙂 which have been very critical. However my philosophy is, just because I love something does not make me blind to its flaws, and I think M/M needs several wake-up calls or it will become mired in the same problems many of us have with M/F and I definitely don’t want to see M/M slide into that deep dark abyss.
Next Friday I would like to do something different. Instead of talking about what’s wrong with M/M books I want to do a post on the flip side of the coin which you will help me write. I would like to profile five (5) new M/M authors (they must be published) who you think have the right stuff i.e. they write books which contain good plots, wonderful characters that move you, maybe they’re funny, and their books, while erotic, are not PWP (porn without plot). You have to tell me what’s special about them, and anything else you think is important (perhaps they are kind to dogs and fans) 🙂
Why do I want to profile new authors? Because they frequently get lost amidst the “noise” of those who are already established and its difficult for them to find an audience/fan base without some help. To be fair, I’m looking for authors who have been published in the M/M sub genre for not more than one year.
Here’s what you have to do: email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the author, his/her profile (it’s usually found on their websites), and the book(s) he/she has published to date along with his/her contact information: email, website etc. You have to tell me in your email why you think this writer is special and deserving of your admiration because I’ll probably get more than 5 recommendations and I may have to choose, based on how strongly you feel about your author. Please email me using the first “contact” link on the website under Navigation on the left hand sidebar.
I need your recommendations by next Wednesday evening, July 7, so that I can format the post in time for Friday.
Please include in the email in the subject line “New Author Recommendation.” The information on the author should be no more than about 300 words. Only one recommendation per reader please. If the author has already been interviewed on this site he/she is not eligible. You can find all interviews by clicking on the “interview” tag under Navigation. Remember, I’m looking for new M/M authors.
