Here’s to the parts of our jobs that we love ~ Jill Badonsky

There are few parts of being a writer that I absolutely love. There’s nothing like sitting down at the computer and loosely outlining a new story, or a story that’s been marinating in my head for a few days. I love the feeling of typing “The End” at the end of the first draft. And there’s nothing like waking up on Release Day and seeing your book available for sale.

But another one of my favorite things about this job is talking to the readers. Sunday after church, I was talking with a friend during our coffee hour about my writing. She shared with me her enjoyment of not only my novels, but also the entire M/M genre! I couldn’t believe my ears! I was so excited, I asked who her other favorite authors were and we talked about some of our favorite novels we had mutually read.


I’ve never thought of myself as a trend-setter, but I enjoyed knowing that, at least one reader at a time, people are finding the M/M romance genre and finding that they enjoy our stories.

How did you find the M/M genre? I’d love to hear!

About L Dean Pace-Frech

With inspiration from historical tourism sites, the love of reading, and a desire to write a novel, Dean started crafting his debut novel, A Place to Call Their Own, in 2008. After four years of writing and polishing the manuscript, it was accepted and published by Musa Publishing in 2013. His second novel, Disappear With Me, set in Edwardian England was published later that same year by Musa.

Dean lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with his husband, Thomas (legally as of February 14, 2015), and their two cats. They are involved in their church and enjoy watching movies, outdoor activities in the warmer weather, and spending time together with friends and family. In addition to writing, his hobbies include reading and patio gardening.

Dean is currently working a standalone title, Need Your Love, set in 1966, and The Higher Law, a continuation of the story of Frank and Gregory’s family set in the 1930s.

  1. Suzanne Brockmann’s Trouble Shooter world, Jules and Robin. I still think they are my favorite characters, followed by Tony and Adam from the same series. That was the start of my m/m reading pleasure and I haven’t looked back since.

  2. I downloaded a free copy of Harper Fox’s Scrap Metal because the m/m concept was intriguing, but promptly forgot about it. Then one day I was getting a pedicure and decided to play kindle kamikaze (randomly open a book & start reading) and landed on Scrap Metal. Figured the POV character was a woman (because why wouldn’t she be?) until Nichol got down on his knees in front of Archie and…
    That’s still one of my favorite m/m books.

  3. Although not really m/m, I found m/m through Amazon referrals after I bought Lynn Flewelling’s Night Runner series & other fantasy books with gay characters. 🙂
