What inspired me to say this?
Having just come from a few conferences, I can tell you that writers (myself especially) are often shy. Many of us look like deer caught in the headlights when the marketing person stands up and tells us what we “should” be doing.
At the same time, readers from Gay Romance to YA, are often shamed about their choices (more on this in a coming post). It makes me angry when I see book shaming for any reason.
We should support and not judge each other.
I’m going to work on this blog and sharing more books that I love. I want to talk craft. Craft excites me!
I want to share some news. Maybe offer some free reads and some polls? Because I think being interactive with each other is success.
I stopped blogging here because talking to myself is not exciting. I’d rather go off and create a story and listen to the voices in my head. On the other hand, listening to all of you out there is awesome.
For example, I’d love to simply know what makes a romance book great to you? What tropes would you like to see more of in Gay Romance? What do you think of when you hear words like “best”?
