Today Erin & I are celebrating the release of Room 1024 our novelette set at a gay men’s leather conference. Promoting this story is a little weird — if we lead with “responsible non-monogamy” that leaves out some key elements of the story people might like to know about in advance; if we lead with “fisting!” that undersells just how much of the story is about talking and negotiation and relationships.
We write a lot of stories that feature non-monogamy, and as writers who straddle the gay romance and gay lit spaces, that can be a little challenging. But at core, what Erin and I love are process stories. How do you take the moving pieces of your life — whether that’s a high pressure job and an intense relationship; or whether that’s multiple relationships — and make that work.
