H.C. Brown-What Writing GLBTQ Literature Means to Me



The Rainbow Blog Hop is Here

 HC's Contest winner  corieltauviqueen at yahoo dot co dot uk








I didn't always write M/M Romance  in fact, my first published book happened to be Murder by Design.
 I write menage and  M/F too.






My first slide into gay romance came in the guise of a seven foot tall King of the Fae, a stunningly beautiful ethereal male by the name of Nox.


I had finished the story Purr-fect Seduction  and Nox hovered on the edge of my mind. I rewrote the story including this character and this book became the first in the
 successful Pride Brother's series.



   I moved into contemporary M/M romance and lately historical in an effort to highlight how society perceives gay men and the prejudice they suffer every day of their lives
Why would a heterosexual woman care?
 Because I'm human and love is love no matter who you are or what your sexual orientation is. We all love and hurt the same. I want my readers to  experience a roller-coaster of  real emotions.






 Speaking of hurt my Muse next hurled me into me into the world of M/M  BDSM. Now this is one subject I really enjoy writing.

In all my books, I have a HEA ending because I think every couple deserves a chance of happiness.

So what does writing GLBTQ literature mean to me? It is the beautiful emails I receive thanking me for my understanding and the wonderful fans I've met.





 And the hope that all my stories  reflect my creed...  that all people should be allowed  to love in peace....

H.C. Brown

  1. If you love men, why wouldn't you prefer m/m romance? I think it's made me more empathetic to all men's experience, because it presents a wider range of male personalities than het romance.

    1. Thank you so much. If you liked Time to Live you'll love "Hurt Me Good" to be released in November by Dreamspinner Press.

      My readers wanted a long story and I've written one.

  6. It's nice to read about acceptance. That's one of the things I love about m/m novels. I'm asexual and I've had people give me a hard time about that. That's why I love seeing all the support out there for people with different sexual orientations. We're still people, no matter what our orientation.

    1. We all pray for a perfect world but that will never happen.

      I just hope you know you are not alone in your fight.

      But hey, wouldn't life be boring if we were all the same?

  7. I'm a new LGBTQ author participating in the hop. Just wanted to stop by. It took a little time to find your blog. Maybe I'm just a little slow. LOL! Agreed, love is love. We all deserve it and should be left alone to live it! Good post!

  8. thank you for participating in this blog hop. it's been interesting reading author's POV on writting GLBTQ fiction. although it's not a perfect world but it's good to read about such love beyond gender getting happy ending because I believe everyone deserve a happy ever after regardless of who they love.

  9. thank you for participating in this blog hop. although it's not a perfect world but it's good to read about m/m romance having happy endings because I believe that everyone deserve happy ever after regardless of who they love (whether female/male)

  10. Two things I'm learning today (or confirming today) on this hop - people are just people regardless of who they love, and there's a really great community out there among the writers and the fans who follow them.

  11. I'm a fellow writer of m/m and it's hard to pinpoint exactly what it is about this category that I love so much. Ultimately, I think it's just that I love writing what I love reading. It's that simple. If we're to go deeper, I'd have to quote myself from the book Why Straight Women Love Gay Romance that'll be released in September. 32 women trying to explain why, lol. Can't wait to see what the other 31 women wrote.

  12. I'm so excited to see you taking part in this hop, and equally excited to see RainbowReviews starting up.
    I am addicted to m/m reading, because the dynamic between two male characters in a romance is just so much more angsty, more heated, more everything than in a conventional romance.
    Thanks to all the great writer taking part in the hop, and many more, so many genres have developed within m/m romance that it has something for everyone.

    I'd love a chance to win a book, please.
