Trix: How do you think m/m romance has changed over the past four years?
I really do. My views on relationships has changed a lot and I’m more grateful than ever for how easy I have it as a straight female. I’m also more critical of f/m romance as they have to have a good plot without all the crap m/m couples have to face. And of course the sex is pretty darn hot, so erotic f/m books have to work harder to compare *grins*
The biggest change I’ve noticed recently is the number of self publishers. I believe some of it has to do with so many publishers closing their doors and the ease authors now have with getting the word out through social media.
I do. I think the genre has been constantly expanding. More people are getting involved. Not just in reading, but also writing, beta reading, editing, cover art, promotion and reviewing. There is also so many conventions and books signings to enjoy. The fan base are a powerful force too and I believe that their interest in reading all types of M/M books have helped to continually highlight issues within society. I also think social media is expanding, readers and authors networking. Growth is a great thing for the genre.
I think that there are so many new authors out there and that’s really freaking cool. I LOVE that so many people are writing about m/m romance and that our fan base is HUGE!!
