Making Gay Fiction Mainstream

I am 100% committed to publishing entertaining books that lift the human spirit. While Dan Sexton’s erotica may seem a stretch in that regard, it’s exactly on target. Under Dan’s pen, I’ve recently published Handy Men Do It Better. Honestly, it’s rather controversial.

Fifty Shades of Grey made erotica mainstream. Years ago, writers of books with sex-related stories were relegated to porn shops. E.L. James, and others, have changed that.

For gay fiction, or mm romance (man-on-man or male-on-male) books, the stigma is also changing.

I credit God’s greatest creation, women, as the one of the reasons. Females are the number one consumers of mm romance fiction and also author some (if not most) stories in this genre.

Onto the scene comes Dan Sexton—far from God’s best concoction, but he’s pretty good.

Don’t be fooled into thinking his debut Handy Men Do It Better is an all-sex book. Its cover may be something you care to judge it by.

Yes, this book is steamy, but Dan Sexton pens the beginnings of a romance between two “straight-acting” men with an intriguing story line—something I hope (as his publisher) will have you salivating for the next release.

To handy men, Jake and Cory, building a relationship is a lot like designing a home or landscaping a yard. It’s hard work. Using just the right tool helps.

And, tools fly quite readily in this book.

Some people think the men in Dan’s story are immature. Well, exploring true intimacy for the first time may have some acting like a teenager, despite that they’re pushing thirty.

Find out why here.

    I loved the book! Some parts had some serious steam while others were laugh-out-loud funny. Can’t wait for the next one 🙂
