As mentioned, I am really enjoying writing this romance. The two characters are complete opposites. Zac's a primadonna fashion designer and Adam is a financial wizard stockbroker. They are actually both sub-characters that somehow just came to life on their own. But they are so much fun, I think they may get their own sequel.Nice
I would just write the story as you see it. The right publisher won't have a problem with it.I'm exploring a queer romance in my novel, though cautiously. Does anyone know how publishers react to queer romance and would I be safer to steer clear of it? My MC is bi and he's caught in a bit of a love triangle with another man and a woman.
And I thought I was weird creating a relationship between a gender-fluid bisexual god and something I called "multi-entity" that lived in a plane of existence were something like that was possible.When sex, sexuality and relationships play a role in any of my plotlines I like to either have it outside of the heteronormative cliches or when a heteronormative relationship/sexuality angle comes up I add in something non heteronormative to balance that.
But generally I'm more likely to experiment with concepts of aliens, gods and other beings that have more than two physical sexes and or a proclivity towards sexual morphology (changing physical sex and gender at will). When I feel sexuality or romance will add a positive to my story.
But I usually steer away from romance and sexuality and stick to tall tales, fantastical nonsense and unlikely events. Mostly I like to have hints of flirting and create the expectations of a relationship blossoming but keep it platonic which is my most common form of romantic/sexual sub plots.
