A Guest Review by Feliz

Summary Review: A well-written sweet romance despite all the trauma and drama, but the end came a little rushed.

*** This book contains on-page non-consensual sex and sexual abuse, though not between the main characters–readers who take exception to such issues might want to  reconsider reading it***

Communication in Romance by Cat Grant

2,082 Views

Cat Grant talks today about communication … in romance. I comment a lot about the theme of The Big Misunderstanding (or even silly little misunderstandings) that is very prevalent in M/M romances and this sometimes results in our heroes being apart for months and even years because they seem unable to talk to each other. Cat’s position is that the BM isn’t really what it appears. Here’s her perspective ….

***********

Communication in romance, and why the “big misunderstanding” really isn’t.

I’ve published eleven books since 2008, but it’s only recently I realized the central conflict in most of my work revolves around communication – or the lack of it. Opening up and talking to one’s partner is the most important part of any relationship. It’s also the scariest part.

(Let me preface this by saying the following is based on my own fifty-odd years of life experience, twenty of which were spent with the same man. Your mileage may vary!)

Summary Review
This sequel to Allegro Vivace was an interesting continuation of Aaron and Matt’s relationship, but in the end the pointless jealousy and bickering became tiresome.

A Bi-Textual Author Ponders… by Cat Grant

933 Views


“This is my first post here on Jessewave’s blog, and I’d like to say a big thank you to her for inviting me to take part in this birthday celebration!

I’m Cat Grant, author of both menage and m/m erotica – and proud of it, too. I read the “What’s Up With Menage?” discussion here a few months ago, and found it both intriguing and more than a bit baffling. Many of you expressed concern that menage books had apparently become so popular, they were in danger of squeezing m/m books out of the marketplace. But if that’s true, I certainly haven’t seen much evidence of it. Take a look at the All Romance e-books’ best seller list – most, if not all, of the books listed there at any given time are m/m.

Most of the major e-publishers have ongoing submission calls for m/m manuscripts. Samhain and Loose-Id publish several m/m titles every month, and considering how well it sells for them, I’m sure they’d publish more if they could get it. The biggest concern I’ve heard from publishers is that they don’t receive enough good-quality m/m submissions.

Publishers publish what sells – if they didn’t, they’d be out of business. There’s no denying that menage is hot right now, and with good reason. Plenty of readers will pick up a menage book before they’d even touch m/m – but as an author, I’d consider this an opportunity, rather than an obstacle. If you can seduce your readers into reading a little m/m mixed in with the m/f and m/m/f scenes, chances are they’ll be much more receptive to reading an exclusively m/m title. Menage can be the perfect “gateway drug” if you use it right!

I freely mix m/m/f, m/f and m/m in all my books. Some readers have expressed concern about this, but what can I say? If I had to choose to write one particular type of pairing for the rest of my career, I don’t think I could do it. For one thing, I have a short attention span. I’d get bored writing the same thing over and over. I enjoy exploring the full spectrum of human sexuality in my work. And while I understand why some readers have a strong preference for one type of pairing over another, I also think those readers could do with broadening their horizons a bit. ;)”
