Then there is writing, and schoolwork…big decision to be made as to which to pursue. (grins); but I have deadlines on both; which add to the lovely pressure.
Otherwise, there is the company business, and an odd question to ask… I’ve noticed that m/f material does not move nearly as much as the m/m material, and I have to ponder, why is that?
Is it because I am known as a m/m author myself? It’s possible.
Is it because I don’t know many groups that carry ‘mainstream’ material? Perhaps.
This is the quandry that faces me now. I have submissions waiting; and they are both m/f.
I want to believe that every book will sell, based on the story. I accept great stories (I wouldn’t if I hated them)… but that’s beside the point.
Is the readership based solely on gender? I know my hubby doesn’t come near my works; because it is m/m, yet my own father was able to handle reading it, because he loved the way I told the story.
So, what’s the approach to take, you think? Find new groups that handle more mainstream works, or not accept and do m/m only?
