I've begun work on edits for a new release that deals with a subject/fetish I've never explored before in m/m fiction/romance...as an author or a reader. I don't know the exact release date. But I do know I will be working with my editor at loveyoudivine until I think it's as close to perfect as I can get it.
The subject deals with foot fetish. And I've never done anything like it before because I don't know much about it. But I've always believed that if you write fiction you should be able to write on any topic...I've also never been a fan of that school of thought that says, "Write what you know." I think if all authors wrote what they knew, we'd have a lot of boring, sucky novels around. For me, I'd rather explore things I've never done before and don't know about. It keeps me moving forward as an author and, I hope, keeps my work fresh. I also think the market for foot fetish readers is larger than most people would imagine. It's still a minor sub-genre, but there have to be people interested in reading it.
This is just one more reason why I love working with a publisher like loveyoudivine so much. They allow me the freedom to do this without asking any questions. Sometimes, when I submit something to them, I'm not sure how they will respond. But when I do hear back, it's always something positive and encouraging. And we move forward with the project.
I'm going to post about a few changes I'm going to be making in the coming new year. Like I said, as an author, there's nothing worse than not having the ability to move forward and venture into new areas you haven't been before. This may very well be my first and last foot fetish story, but that doesn't mean there won't be a lot of new things happening in the future.
