Fantasy, in all its flavors, is by far my favorite genre. It comes from living alone in the back 40 of central Washington. I like making up worlds. It’s part of why I game and write and daydream.

Never liked romance. Couldn’t get into the cheesy, overthetopness. Often, the female leads were victims, inactive, or too full of impotent wanting, waiting for a man to save them. Not my thing. And the purple prose. So, I never read that genre much (though there were some thriller romances that were pretty good.)

I was not the target audience.

Then I discovered amateur gay romances and erotica. Mainly on free-to-read websites. I thought to myself, why can’t I find more professional books like this? A few years back, I nosed around a bit and discovered quite a book log of gay romantic and erotic stories. Hot damn. The mother load. Further nosing, and I discovered them in the fantasy genre. Books with plot. Now, I am finally a target audience.

This. This is what I want. Gay romantic/erotic fantasy. Romance and erotica slipped into a story that is mainly focused on a plot, with a fantastical world, and active characters out on a quest/stop the bad guy/save the world/insert plot trope here. Heroes who swashbuckle and screw!

If you enjoy plotty romantic stories with gay protagonists and dashes of smut. You, my dears, are my target audience.

(though, on that note, Wielder World does have some build up in the first two novellas. Expect some heat in the third installation.)
