That's as much time as I have left to get Dancing Men ready for launch. So why am I wasting precious time writing a blog post?
Because that guy at the right has quit talking to me until I do. That's Hunter Dane, homicide detective. And very good at it.
He is the Main Character (I can hear Cam clearing his throat from a chair he's laying up in a chair with my Kindle in his lap, behind me.) in the Hunt Dane Investigation series and one of the protagonists in the Hunt&Cam4Ever series. The other being the redoubtable Camden Caulfield Snow.
These men, if you've been following along, have a pretty hot relationship, sex-wise. They also have a pretty amazing relationship all otherwise, I think. It's an evolving relationship, title to title, things change. But the point here is:
Hunter Dane is not gay. (He also doesn't like labels and is rolling his eyes because he knows I'm going to do use one.) Hunt is a bisexual switch. That's two labels.
A lot of people think of bisexual as someone who is gay sometimes and straight other times. The thing about sexuality and gender is: it's a spectrum. It's probably the main reason Hunter hates being called that, even though he'll grudgingly go along. (He just said, "You're a fucking writer, make up a better word!")
Uh ... Homo sapiens sapiens? But I didn't make it up.
In the real world people are infinitely variable and sexuality is highly complex and under
As a writer, my job is to bring you the characters and stories being as true to both as I can be. Their story as shown in the books and shorts and appearances in other books, is not a romance. It's the story of the impact two people have on one another. (Aaaand Cam just dragged Hunt off toward -- oh man, it's a one-bedroom apartment.)
Anyway, I know some people are sensitive to seeing certain kinds of things and would rather avoid the whole book if it has stuff they don't like. I know this because a person in the reviewer comments on one site seemed outraged that m/f sex had even been mentioned, quit reading and gave the book she had never read the lowest possible rating. So - serious trigger issue for some.
I write about all the stuff of my characters who I experience as just as real as anyone. But mostly, I write about love.
Now I have to go put my earplugs in.
