Today I’m very pleased to welcome Beany Sparks as my guest! She is talking about her own experience of the M/M genre and her own M/M books.
Hi Catherine *waves* Thanks for letting me visit your blog 🙂
I sat in front of the computer for a while trying to think of what to ramble about (yes, I admit, I ramble) and I struggled. Give me questions to answer and I can come up with something, but if I have to come up with an actual post? PITA disappears and I’m sitting there just looking at the screen.
But after I stopped getting distracted by the TV and stopped looking at my iPod which was taunting me about how I had a few more stories in the current series I’m reading (for anyone interested, it’s Viola Grace’s Tales of the Citadel series, yes its M/F but it’s addictive!) I came up with something.
I’ve been reading M/M stories for years now, ever since I stumbled onto my first book which was Attracting Anthony by Amber Kell. When I started writing, the first story I wrote was M/F but then the next one was M/M and since then I have written more M/M stories and have even more planned.
Aside from one story, all of mine M/M stories have had shifters, magic or both. I like the freedom that it provides because you can create a whole world for your characters and just have fun. My Paws and Magic series was initially going to be one story and now I have two published and at least twelve more characters wanting their stories told.
Can you see a trend? *winks*
It seems that my M/M characters are more vocal and determined for me to write their stories, now I just need to keep up. I have a few more projects planned for this year but no real details on them. For now, I’m working on Merman Tales 2 and Paws and Magic 3.
