Embracing diversity in fiction
I’ve wanted to do another article about diversity in fiction for a while now. My first was about interracial romances and why I love writing them but with so much chatter going about the need for diversity in books, I had to speak on it again. First let’s start off with a question for authors. Since I’m an author too, I figured I’d begin here. You’re an author and you have an idea for a story which features a character of a race other than your own. Say it’s a black male and you as a white female or male aren’t sure what to write. Do you scrap this idea, even though it could be one of your best books or do you try doing it yourself and using what you’ve seen on TV as your guide? I’ve talked with authors before who’ve said they’d rather not do…

Win a signed print copy of Jayden!
Here is the blurb
You can never tell a book by it’s cover!
On the surface, Isaac Bridges has it all; wealth, a beautiful wife, and a successful career. But deep down, he desires Denton & Associates back under his family’s name and a male lover he can call his own.
Enter Jayden Demario, a handsome college student looking to make a career in advertising. Underneath the pretty exterior, Jayden is a very damaged young man. Thrown out on the streets by his stepfather at 15, Jayden’s only concern is to make something of himself to move his “madre” from the tough neighborhood.
Jayden has no time for love, especially not with a closeted married man who runs the company he interns at and Isaac can ill afford to out himself to the homophobic CEO at Denton.
Will the sparks…

Embracing Diversity in Fiction by Sharita Lira

Dakota Trace’s muse is visiting BL’s
Good morning again sexy people. It’s not often that I have guests on the blog. We need to change that. *grins* Here today is Livvy, Dakota Trace’s wicked miuse talking about her smexy MMF Wolfen Bonds.
Standing outside a large armory, a woman clad in a lime green corset with purple piping and a shot micro mini skirt waited. She looked up. “Hi, I’m Livvy, Dakota Trace’s muse or bane of her existence depending upon her mood. I’m here today at her request. See we’re on the trail of a missing torgue. It belongs to Wolfen Bond’s heroine, Colleen. It seems the silly chit took it off to show it to Gretchen then promptly lost it. Speaking of Colleen, she’s supposed to be meeting me here. Evidently that hunk of a man has her torque.”
Loud banging greeted Livvy as she pulled the door open to the armory. “Hot damn…

Andrew Q Gordon at Michaels
Author Name: Andrew Q. Gordon
Andrew Q. Gordon wrote his first story back when yellow legal pads, ball point pens were common and a Smith Corona correctable typewriter was considered high tech. Adapting with technology, he now takes his MacBook somewhere quiet when he wants to write. He currently lives in the Washington, D.C. area with his partner of eighteen years, their young daughter and dog. In addition to dodging some very self-important D.C. ‘insiders’, Andrew uses his commute to catch up on his reading. When not working or writing, he enjoys soccer, high fantasy, baseball and seeing how much coffee he can drink in a day and not get the shakes.
