What genre do you like to read and write?

(this post is based on the Marketing for Romance Writers 52 Week Challenge)

I'm not fussy...there is very little in romance that is a hard no for me. I'm not a huge BDSM fan, and I don't really get MPREG, but if someone pressed their favourite BDSM MPREG into my hands and told me my life would be incomplete until I'd read it, I'd probably try it.

I find contemporary romance easiest to write. It gives me familiar settings and really lets me dig into the characters to find out what makes them tick. I'd love to write romantic suspense, but I'd need to do a ton of work on plotting big external plots and also on law enforcement...spies...terrorists...you get the idea.

My TBR pile is giant and varied though. Books I've read most recently include:

So yeah. It's all pretty gay. But otherwise, there's pretty well the whole shebang in there. Better find a couple historical romances to balance it all out.

Game Day!

printing-3025962_1920 The Pick Up is out in less than a month. I keep alternating between excited dancing and blind panic. I'm told this is normal.

Meanwhile, my mom, who has never read a romance novel in her life, is working her way through her advance copy (moms get perks) and periodically asking herself why her little girl is writing romance stories about two men. She's cool with it, she just wants to understand why.

I'm still not sure I have a succinct answer for her.

But! If you, like her, are new to the genre, I have a fun new game to play. You can try it with The Pick Up, or any other m/m title that tickles your fancy!

Presenting...m/m romance bingo, courtesy of the awesome and hilarious Tanya Chris!

Note: Mercifully, not all m/m romances contain all these tropes, so your mileage may vary. There are no shifters and no one gets pregnant in The Pick Up, so your chances for a full-card bingo are nil.

While you wait for Kyle and Adam to hit the shelves, you can always try the bingo card out on Tanya's shifter story, Omega Reclaimed. It's free right now at Amazon (until Friday)!
