Since I’ve been successfully avoiding all forms of paid work lately due to the dramas of real life, cruising bookstores and publishing houses, lurking on other people’s blogs, checking out reviews, writing my own… oh, and reading books *g*, I’ve begun to notice certain characters popping up again.
I’ve already mentioned the gay bookstore owner here. I think he’s definitely still hanging about, but what do you think about these guys:
=> the gay veterinarian (awww, such a sweetie)
=> the gay cop (either closeted or keeps his sexuality to himself)
=> the gay stalker (or should that be the stalker of someone gay? stalkeree??)
=> the arty gay guy (photographer, artist, actor, chef, etc)
=> the gay health worker (sometimes a doctor, a nurse, or a paramedic depending on the level of beta-ness)
=> the gay uni professor, lecturer, whatever (if a student is involved this can get squicky)
=> the gay bartender or bar/nightclub owner (HOT!)
Again, I’m not dissing, because – and let’s face it – as long as the story is good and the characters convincing… who cares!
Just me wanting to know if anyone else has noticed the above or whether it’s me again.
And let’s not start on the female characters in het romance. I have declared this a rant free week and such topics are to be avoided.
