… does there seem to be a lot of m/f/m and m/m/f coming out at the moment??
I think that Ellora’s Cave had 3 books out last week and at least 2 the week before that, and Loose Id also had 3 last week.
Of course it could be purely coincidental that these books, which have been in the pipeline, are all coming out at the same time. Perhaps the market for this genre has increased to the extent that the demand is there??
I’m not sure. All I know is, from my perspective, it seems like the two bi guys meet/want a girl is being thrashed and it’s kinda off-putting.
There are a couple of authors who achieve great things with this genre – Jet Mykles is one who immediately springs to mind – but the last few weeks/month it feels like everyone is jumping on this particular band wagon.
As I said, maybe it’s just me…
KrisI stopped reading menages (other than in rare cases b/c I really like the author) except for M/M/M because it just seemed that if there was a woman in the mix she never a a big role in the book. What I found out from a couple of publishers is that women LOVE these books. It’s the #1 female fantasy. Who knew? They eat them up b/c they imagine themselves in the starring role with a couple of guys.
Always good to know what our #1 fantasy is meant to be, isn’t it Wave!This is going to seem really generalistic, but sometimes when I read m/m/f I get the impression that if you add a woman in the mix it’s okay to be gay. That just doesn’t gell with me.
