This mini-interview with Allan Jay is brought to you in support of Queer Romance Month. QRM runs throughout October, celebrating love stories in all shades of the rainbow in all shades of romance. Join us, and over a hundred LGBTQ+ authors and allies, for essays, flash-fiction and much, much more. Allan Jay A queer romance you’d recommend to a newcomer I usually give four recommendations so the person gets to explore the breadth available in queer romance. These are: anything by Con Riley, but particularly the Seattle Series, for contemporary; the Widdershins series by Jordan L Hawk for the always excellent Whyborne & Griffin; everything by K.J. Charles for those who want stories set in the UK; and the Phlogiston set by Alexis J Hall to show the wonderful places the imagination in queer romance can take you. All of these are also brilliant in other ways, but like a crack dealer I’m hoping the new reader will get hooked. Favourite queer romance hero I have a massive confession to make. I mostly fall for, and have as my favourites, the love interest rather than the main hero of a book. These guys are my book boyfriends, and yes that is…
Everything About Queer Romance Month What it is Queer Romance Month is a month long celebration of romance across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Every day in October, we publish three to four posts from a variety of readers, writers, bloggers and other brilliant people. Our contributors come from all corners of Romancelandia, united by our belief that love is love, romance is romance, and sexuality is not a sub-genre. On the website, we’ll be showcasing essays, think pieces, flash fiction, and other good things inspired by this year’s theme: We All Need Stories. You’ll also find us around the blogosphere all month long, bringing you exclusive interviews, audio clips and video readings from our wonderful contributors. Why it’s awesome Because everyone involved in Queer Romance Month is terribly brilliant and sexy. More seriously, it’s a chance to talk about books you love or discover books you’re going to love in an exciting, diverse and enthusiastic community. There’ll be actual, legit, brand new content from a wide range of writers who we hope you’ll already think are fabulous or will decide are fabulous after you read them. We hope you’ll laugh and cry and think and find something that speaks to you….
Since 2014 October has been renamed Queer Romance Month. One whole month to celebrate our favorite books. But there is also an underlying reason to have this month. Queer Romance Month exists to celebrate queer romantic fiction in all its aspects. We believe that love is love, and nobody should be relegated to a sidebar or a subgenre. Queer romance is romance. We welcome anyone who believes in love, irrespective of gender or orientation. Allies, supporters and the curious are all part of QRM. We support the right to read what you like, write what you love, and be who you are. We love romantic fiction. We want to share the love and help some amazing books and authors reach a wider audience. Thanx to the wonderful people of the organization in a few more days we will start the second edition of the month. In 2014 the theme was Love is Love, in 2015 the theme will be We All Need Stories. Check out the wonderful website here and find out how you too can be involved in this.
