This week on Jeff & Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast, our special guest, author and publisher J.M. Snyder, asked “What’s your favorite read outside the m/m genre?”
While I do focus the majority of my reading in the gay romance genre–not only do I enjoy it but since I write in the genre it’s important to see what else is being done–I do read other things too.
There’s a far bit of non-fiction reading around writing, especially the business of writing as I learn as much as I can about becoming an author entrepreneur. Besides that I read a far bit in young adult as well as books from my favorite general fiction authors like Jay McInerney and Michael Chabon.
I’m discovering that I’m still in to sci-fi, too. In my writer’s group, currently made up of seven people, I’m the only one who primarily writes gay romance. The new member, a friend of mine, writes a bit in the genre, but he also fits in great with the rest of the group who lean towards sci-fi and fantasy. I’ve loved reading the work from the group members and it’s reminded me that I used to read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy when I was a teenager. So it’s possible I may pick up more of that in the future as well.
What do you read out side m/m? The best place to answer the question this week is over on the episode page since you’ll find the opportunity to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway for a free ebook copy of Make the Right Choice, an ebook of mine that just came out this past week (and is firmly in the gay romance genre).
