The last of the procrastinators ... 1/10th of an inch in front of the cattle prods ... DeMarco appears on this wiki at last, with 12 days to spare before the year expires. I promised DreamCraft I would be here, with a coherent page, before 2009 expired. I made it with almost two weeks to spare. For me, this is a record!
I'm a new arrival to m/m publishing, but have been writing for a long time. Once upon a very-long-time ago I wrote fan fic. I'm actually a contemporary of Mel Keegan (yes, that old!) but I've been writing in other fields since 1990 or thereabouts.
However, a few months ago I entered an arrangement with DreamCraft and a number of my m/m titles will be appearing in 2010 under their label ... which is extremely exciting.
This page will develop as I progress in the m/m field. My first public outing in this genre is actually a flash fic on the GLBT fiction blog: Don't Go Away, inspired by the artwork appearing on Jade's 3D Art blog in the last week or so.
In the last year I've written a couple of dozen m/m titles -- modest length and ranging from near-history historical to futuristic. I'd been thinking about a paperback anthology, but then I woke up to the ebook revolution, where a story can stand on its own, delivered electronically. Yes! I'm not a great one for anthologies. Usually, I only really like one writer or one story in any given collection, and the rest is 'make-weight.' This was fine back in the days when paperbacks cost $2.50 ... I can remember far enough back for them to cost 65c. But these days, to get a book via Amazon costs up to ten times that much. And anthologies bother me for the same reason. Nobody minds a coupla bucks to get one special story, but the high price of a 300pp Amazon paperback + shipping, esp. to the antipodes, makes it critical for every writer and every story in the anthology to be a personal favorite. Which is almost impossible.
So I embraced the concept of ebooks fast, especially when Jade came up with a bunch of absolutely fantastic covers! I showed my stack of existing m/m stories to DreamCraft last June or July, and out of 25 they gave the nod to 20, with a few "niggles and peeves" about the remainder that can be fixed ... or could be, if I wasn't the last of the aforementioned procrastinators! In any case, it'll take all of 2010 to get through the stack I already delivered, so I'm off the hook till 2011, and the words "write a novel" have been flittering like fireflies through my brain.
I'll update this page as the stores are issued, and each one of the covers below will become a live link. I have no idea which order they'll be issued in ... I suspect it's a kind of lucky dip, or lottery. You'd have to ask the guys at DreamCraft!
due sometime in 2012/13...
