Jelly Beans ~ Outside the Margins with Dean Frech

Join Prism Book Alliance® as Dean Frech goes Outside the Margins today.

Love is strange and mysterious, just like jelly beans ~ Unknown

That’s the reason I like to read romance stories, because they are all so mysterious. Especially when there are multiple characters introduced that could the be romantic couple, I love trying to figure out who is going to get the happy ending by the close of the story. I also like reading about all the different ways that authors get their characters together. One time after finishing a book, I asked the writer, who was a close friend, how she came up with that twist or if she read about in her research. In this case, she came up with the idea herself, it was brilliant.

If nothing else, GRL2016 proved to me the exhaustive breadth of gay romance available to readers right now. During my reading session, my sweet scene from Need Your Love where Eron goes to Garrett and confess his love was sandwiched between the the sexy and provocative Devon McCormack and the chilling, yet erotic reading by Christian Banes. And that was just one session of three authors. One can find historical, fantasy, sci-fi, romantic suspense, and any number of shifter stories out there for readers to enjoy.

One can probably look at all the different social media groups, Goodreads groups, Amazon, ARe, and all the rest of the retailers to scope out all the different sub-genres available. I even ran into a shark-shifter book on Amazon the other day!

I guess that’s all I have this month. My point: there are lots of different stories out there to read. Partake in the novels and stories you like to read, leave the rest without malice or judgment.

What’s your favorite sub-genre of gay romance? I’d love to hear…as you can probably guess, mine are historicals!

About Dean 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.
