As part of the Follow the Rainbow Book Reviews Blog Hop, I’m going to answer the question: What does writing GLBTQ literature mean to me?
I write gay, lesbian and bisexual fiction (as well as straight fiction). I love it because I have so much freedom. I can fix up any kind of pairing (or more-ing! Just made up a word there), make it erotica, erotic romance or pure romance. I also write contemporary and paranormal stuff, which adds in even more writing fodder. Because of this, I’ve written contemporary lesbian stuff, paranormal lesbian stuff, contemporary bisexual stuff, military gay stuff… you get the picture. I can just write whatever stories come into my head and I don’t have to worry if the guys like other guys, or the girls like both, and so on.
Of course it means that some readers will only either read my GLBTQ stuff, or my straight stuff, because they don’t like the other pairings. But it can also mean that readers that find me through one avenue of work may be tempted to try reading something different. I’ve had several reviews where the reviewer has said that my work was the first lesbian stuff they’d read, and that’s awesome.
So, if I were to boil it down to a couple of words, I’d say freedom and variety. That’s what writing GLBTQ literature means to me.
