Hey! Welcome to my little corner of the BP Blog Hop! Have you been to the other author sites yet? Pretty fantastic, huh?

I’ve been wracking my brains this past week, trying to come up with a super topic for the weekend. But being neither clever nor witty, as the saying goes, I thought I’d answer THE question everyone asks me when they find out I’m a writer.

Typical conversation:

Them: So, I didn’t know you write. Got anything published?

Me: Sure. *list off books*

Them: Digital books? Like kindle stuff?

Me: Yeah.

Them: Oh. What genre?

Me: M/M Erotic Romance

Now for the BIG question! (Wait for it! They have to blink at me several times as if debating if their next question is at all rude. They take a deep breath and plunge in, rude or not. They have to know!) Why?

I tell them because it’s fun to write. Want to know the real reason? Lean close! I’ll whisper it. I don’t want everyone to know… I think gay men are hot as hell and about the most sensual creatures I’ve ever met! And where else but in fiction can I touch and pet them to my heart’s content?  *waggles eyebrows*


Okay, Prize Time! For listening to me ramble on I’m giving away a $10 Breathless Press Gift Card to one of my commenters. Happy Hopping! Please leave your contact info!

Hey, did you find the blue letter T for my part in the scavenger hunt? 🙂

    Hi, Dianne.

    I can just imagine the expressions when you tell folks you write m/m novels. I’m sure the expressions are very similar when I tell folks I read m/m novels! LOL

    Wow! That’s a good a reason as any…for writing what you write I mean! What it boils down to for me is writing about something that is so fun and inspiring that it doesn’t feel like work!!
