Who is your Favourite M/M Author?

Do you have a favourite M/M author? Someone whose books you can’t wait to drop and it always seems like forever for him or her to release a new story? When that brand spanking new book arrives on your e-reader or desktop or in print do you shut out the world or even take time off from work to immerse yourself in it? There aren’t many authors who would make…

A Matter of Trust — The Art of Collaboration by A.J. Llewellyn

A Matter of Trust — The Art of Collaboration by A.J. Llewellyn

Occasionally authors write articles on the site on different topics they believe would be of interest to their colleagues, and the following post from A.J. Llewellyn is one such essay. *********** I have, I would say, had the terrific good fortune of having one of the most amazing writing partnerships I know of. Ever since the divine and deeply talented D.J. Manly approached me to write a story together, my career…

Who are your favourite series heroes?

Who are your favourite series heroes?

Many of us follow several series and we wait with a great deal of anticipation for the next book to show up because, in most cases, we have been waiting for what seems to be forever to continue the adventures of our favourite heroes. Does it seem as if authors take an awfully long time to release the next book in a series? I remember being very impatient for The…

ANGST: When Is Too Much WAY Too Much?

I had another post I was writing for today but Sirius and I were emailing about something else entirely and the topic of overwhelming angst in M/M romances came up. We had a long discussion about the pros and cons of angst in romances so I thought I would write about it. Blame Sirius for my inspiration. 🙂 Angst seems to be a common feature in many contemporary M/M romances…

Bi-Curious?

Bi-Curious?

The photos that accompany this post are of guys I think are hot and I couldn’t find a reason not to include them – believe me, I tried. As far as I know they are not bi-curious although some of you probably wish they were. 😆 This post is partly fun and a little bit serious but it’s not about using someone else to find out if you’re gay, bi…

Gay For You or Out For You?

Gay For You or Out For You?

This commentary was written by old management with the support of many authors in November 2012. The opinions here do not necessary represent the opinions of the new owners. This article will remind posted for archival purposes. Gay For You in M/M romances (which is the only place where you’ll ever find this trope) refers to when a straight man falls in love with a gay man, has sex with…

M/M Romances that Resonate: Part 5

M/M Romances that Resonate: Part 5

I started this series almost a year ago to introduce new M/M readers to older books that I loved. Most of these books are 2 – 3 years old and you might have missed a few of them, which is why I decided to write another post about some of my favourite M/M books that resonate. I tried to choose stories that were very different from each other to give…

Gender Bender  ….. by Jaye Valentine and Wave

Gender Bender ….. by Jaye Valentine and Wave

Jaye and I were talking about cross-dressing men a few weeks ago and decided to join forces on this post since we both love them  – for different reasons. He wants to bed them, 🙂 I just want to read about them.  Here’s Jaye’s love-in about gender bending: ********* Bulging biceps. Ripped, washboard abs. Meaty pectoral muscles. Popping calf muscles. Deltoids, trapezius muscles, latissimus dorsi. The epitome of maleness. Rawr! However, that…

Color Me Beautiful

About three weeks ago I was musing in my weekly update about wanting to write a post on tats, but I realized very quickly that I knew next to nothing about them, other than liking them. As usual when I don’t know much about a topic I ask for volunteers. To my shock, immediately after the post uploaded I received two emails – one from Feliz Faber an author and also…

Numb Shots — by Damon Suede

Numb Shots — by Damon Suede

Orgasms feel good. Asses are amazing. According to an October 2010 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, receptive anal sex has never been more popular with heteros and homos of all genders. As a gay man with a healthy sex drive, I can attest that anal intercourse is awesome when done properly, and any man who hasn’t experienced a prostate orgasm is the poorer for it. I can also verify…

More Burning Questions!

 Last Friday I wrote a serious post so I thought I would lighten things up this week.  I’m working on a sekkrit project and I’m looking for some help. Not being either a man or gay I have a few questions that I can’t answer from personal experience or knowledge, although some of them can be answered by straight females but it’s a lot more fun when sometimes the guys show the…

Diversity in M/M Romances – Will we ever get there?

Almost 2 years ago I wrote a blog essay about the lack of diverse characters in gay contemporary romances. My impression at the time was that M/M was a homogeneous twenty something Caucasian world and that the majority of our authors were not interested in writing about diverse characters. With some exceptions, that opinion hasn’t really changed a whole lot although there has been movement in a positive direction.  In my post 2 years…
