Queer Romance Month - Spotlight
October is Queer Romance Month! A month to celebrate all those delicious romances with heroes and heroines on the LGBTQIA spectrum.

There are so many exciting posts lined up as part of QRM, including author interviews, thinky-posts, flash fiction and more. You can find out more about everything on the QRM website:, but here's what the organizers have to say:

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Queer Romance & Weren’t Particularly Afraid to Ask

What it is:

Queer Romance Month is a month long celebration of romance across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Every day in October, we publish three to four posts from a variety of readers, writers, bloggers and other brilliant people. Our contributors come from all corners of Romancelandia, united by our belief that love is love, romance is romance, and sexuality is not a sub-genre.

On the website, we’ll be showcasing essays, think pieces, flash fiction, and other good things inspired by this year’s theme: We All Need Stories.

You’ll also find us around the blogosphere all month long, bringing you exclusive interviews, audio clips and video readings from our wonderful contributors.

Why it’s awesome:

Because everyone involved in Queer Romance Month is terribly brilliant and sexy.

More seriously, 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.

We hope you’ll laugh and cry and think and find something that speaks to you.

Also we give away free stuff.

How to get involved:

You can visit us daily at Subscribe by email or add our RSS to your feed-reader of choice. Err, assuming people still do that. You can also follow us on Twitter at @QueerRomance, which will alert you when new posts go up.

You can also snag one of our gorgeous badges to display on your own site or use temporarily as a Facebook or Twitter icon to show your support of Queer Romance Month.

Tweet to us, leave us comments, enter our giveaways – we’re here to share our stories and we love hearing from people.


So what are you waiting for? Go check it out! Alexis Hall has kicked off the month with a post on HEA USA Today!

We'll also be getting in on the action at Love Reading Romance as the month goes on. Woot! (A big thanks to Judith at Binge on Books for getting us all organized!)
