October + Romance = Queer Romance Month!

Guys. Guuuuuuys. Get excited. No, really. Get very Very VERY excited cause October is fast upon us and with it comes a very special celebration: QUEER ROMANCE MONTH!

Queer Romance Month? What is that?” you are no doubt all wondering. Well, you see, it’s a fabulous month long celebration of romance across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. What? Yes. FABULOUS. Month Long. Celebration. Every day in October, three to four posts from a variety of readers, writers, bloggers and other brilliant people get posted on queerromancemonth.com. Contributors come from all corners of romance, united by the belief that love is love, romance is romance, and sexuality is not a sub-genre.

Last year’s theme was: Love is Love; this year’s theme is: We All Need Stories. And we do, we all need stories. We All Need Stories badge

You’ll find the awesome contributors all over social media, giving exclusive interviews, audio clips and video readings in addition to the cool content on the Queer Romance Month site.

Now, here’s the clincher: why should you care? Because everyone involved in Queer Romance Month is terribly brilliant and sexy, of course (YOU, the reader, included!!).

No, really.

But on a serious note, it’s a chance to talk about books you love or discover books you’re going to love in an exciting, diverse and enthusiastic community.

There’ll be actual, legit, brand new content from a wide range of writers who we hope you’ll already think are fabulous or will decide are fabulous after you read them.

Here at Binge on Books we are so excited for the return of all those who contributed to the Charmed & Dangerous anthology, as well as so many of our other favorite writers, such as Santino Hassell, Roan Parrish, Alexis J Hall, EE Ottoman, Rose Lerner, Amy Jo Cousins… You get the picture, right? That’s just the beginning of the incredible and diverse list of authors. We are also excited for some of our favorite artists and bloggers to contribute, such as Catherine Dair and Elisabeth Lane, as well as our very own, Liz(!!)

We hope you will join us in celebrating all the amazing and unique queer stories that have already been told, are in the process of being told, or will be told in the future.

There will also be a lot of free stuff. Woot woot. FREE STUFF. You know. As a bonus.

An Interview with Alexis Hall, Author of For Real and Glitterland

Last week, I had the great pleasure of interviewing Alexis Hall, romance author whose latest work, For Real, came out June 1st from Riptide Publishing. We chatted about this, his other works, queer lit, and the deep bowels of London, amongst others.

For Real by Alexis HallFor Real:

Laurence Dalziel is worn down and washed up, and for him, the BDSM scene is all played out. Six years on from his last relationship, he’s pushing forty and tired of going through the motions of submission.

Then he meets Toby Finch. Nineteen years old. Fearless, fierce, and vulnerable.  Everything Laurie can’t remember being.

Toby doesn’t know who he wants to be or what he wants to do. But he knows, with all the certainty of youth, that he wants Laurie. He wants him on his knees. He wants to make him hurt, he wants to make him beg, he wants to make him fall in love.

The problem is, while Laurie will surrender his body, he won’t surrender his heart. Because Toby is too young, too intense, too easy to hurt. And what they have—no matter how right it feels—can’t last. It can’t mean anything.

It can’t be real.
