Join us as Lisa Henry goes Outside the Margins.
Hi, Lisa here. Welcome to my first ever PBA guest post! Strap yourselves in, because this ride is going to be crazy… *awkward silence* Actually, I thought that for my first post here, I’d tell you a bit about myself, and then ask everyone a few questions.
I live in northern Queensland, Australia. Here is a picture taken at dawn on The Strand. This picture was taken by a work colleague, @kallygat on Instagram. Like me, she hates early mornings, but sometimes getting out of bed is almost worth it when you see a sunrise like this, right?
It’s tropical, which means at this time of year it is stinking hot, and it’s going to stay that way until March. On the plus side, it’s mango season. Whenever I smell ripe mangoes I know Christmas can’t be far away. I work a day job with a lot of crazy hours, which means that I’m often online at strange times. That’s the best thing about the internet – someone’s always awake.
I’ve been writing MM since 2011. And seriously, I can’t believe it’s only been three years. Wow, I’ve been busy, particularly when you consider I never actually intended to write romance. I’d always liked reading it, but never really considered writing it. No, I was too busy writing Serious and Important Literature that was all unpublishable, because it was all terrible. Just terrible. Sometimes I like to amuse myself by opening a bottle of wine and pulling out a random manuscript, just for a cheap laugh.
But I love writing romance. It’s great fun. Mostly I love it because it’s not a restrictive genre. You can pair romance up with sci-fi, or historical, or crime, or thriller, or whatever you feel like, and nobody minds. That’s my favourite thing about writing MM, but I’d love to know your favourite things (and least favourite things) about reading it.
Firstly, what would you like to see more of in MM? What’s your favourite trope? Do you like a good hurt/comfort like me? Or how about a first time?
And what would you like to see less of in MM? For me it’s billionaire doms. And shifters. It’s not like I don’t like those things, I just feel like I’ve reached saturation point with them.
How about more historicals? Or sci fi? Or mysteries? Or paranormal?
Tell me what you’d like to read about next, or what you never want to read about again!
