Good evening fans and readers of Goddess Fish!
As this fun filled day draws to a close, I'd like to thank all of you for allowing me to bring some manlove into your lives with these posts. Some of you may not want to read m/m or gay fiction which is fine because it is your choice, however, if you don't, in my opinion you're missing out on some very great stories.
And i'm not just talking about me. Rather, I'm not... *grins* As I said earlier, I prefer to stay grounded but there are a host of great authors who write brilliant tales just with the man on man element. Some don't even have a lot of sexual content if any at all. Still, the relationships in the story are a man pursuing a man and this my friends, if you are open minded, should not be a deterrent.
If you would, peruse the titles of gay fiction, not erotica. This is usually hard to find in all honesty and I'll be doing a post about that tomorrow at fellow author, Sam Crescent's blog. Look at the m/m section and see all of what is to offer. Some of the best are there like GA Hauser, Sue Brown, Rick Reed, LA Witt, Marie Sexton, among others and read the content, the sensuality. I'll bet you'll find one that you're looking for. There is a vast world out there in m/m or gay fiction that has not been discovered so look for it.
Now, time to toot my own horn. *grins* My earlier post was about my characters with their complex plots. I cross over genres and you might see something that you'd like to read. Whether it be the heartwarming A Second Chance with 1 or 2 vivid sex scenes or Longing for a Normal State of Vertigo in the Riding the Rocket anthology where there is barely any sex at all.
The key is allow yourself to be immersed in a good story. You may not be a fan of gay fiction or m/m per se, but there are stories waiting for you there that you'd enjoy reading. Don't shun them because of the primary relationship, give them a try. You might like what you've read.
I'd like to thank Goddess Fish for allowing me to have this release party. Please leave you thoughts on any of my posts and I'll pick a winner that will receive a couple of free books. Thank you for listening and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
