Celebrating the Launch of JM Snyder's SO IN LOVE

An author of gay erotic/romantic fiction, J. M. Snyder began self-publishing in 2002, and now also works with several publishers to bring her stories to readers. Her stories are available in e-book format from Amber Allure, Aspen Mountain, and Torquere Presses. Her highly erotic short gay fiction has been published online at websites such as Ruthie's Club, Tit-Elation, and Amazon Shorts, and has in anthologies published by Alyson Books, Aspen Mountain, and Cleis Presses.

At the heart of Snyder's fiction are loving relationships between consenting gay men. Her books run the gamut of genres from science fiction to mainstream, with something for everyone interested in homoerotica. If you're interested in "just the sex," check out Snyder's short fiction, but if you're looking for more satisfying relationships and longer storylines, dive into one of her many novels. And don't forget her novella-length fiction, combining elements of both erotica and romance fiction.

A full bibliography, as well as free fiction, book excerpts, purchasing information, and exclusive contests, can be found at jmsnyder.net.

  6. Congrats on the new release and for letting us celebrate with you!

    What works do you have coming out next? And how many books do you usually publish in a year?

  7. Hi everyone :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Joder ~ The past few years I've had a TON of new releases (anywhere between 2-4 ebooks a month). However, that may slow down a bit as we head into 2010 because I want to focus more on novel-length stories than shorter works.

    I started out publishing 2 books a year and am going to stick with at LEAST that (and this is 2 paperback books a year, not ebooks).

    Upcoming, I have another novella in my superhero series, V, coming out later this month (entitled THE V IN VIGILANT). Next month I'll re-release 2 short stories as ebooks (MONEY'S WORTH and ONE OF US), as well as a longer contemporary novel entitled ROCKSTAR.

    In December, I have a story appearing in an anthology (FOUR SEASONS: WINTER 2009) and two ebook re-releases with eXcessica (THIS CHRISTMAS and WORLD ENOUGH AND TIME).

    So there's a lot on the horizon, both new and old, that should appeal to readers of gay erotic romance!

  11. Hi JM! Congrats on your release! And I love the cover...

    I've read a few of the stories..am really looking forward to the rest! :)

    You seem to mostly write (and do very well at)shorts and novellas. What are your thoughts on writing at novel length?

  13. Devon,

    I love writing novels, but they take a lot of time. When I was self-publishing, I concentrated on mostly novels, but when I got stuck in one of them, I switched to short stories. I'm currently editing a novel that will come out next month and working on another which I hope to release sometime next year, and I'm looking forward to working on longer stories after that :)

  16. I hope I'm not too late with a question...

    What is your opinion on book trailers? Do you think they help in book sales?

    Thanks,
    Tracey D

  17. Hi Tracey,

    Book trailers ... well, I've made two and I don't really think they did much to boost sales. They were really fun to make, though they took a lot of time. For the past few years I've had a very hectic writing schedule, with new releases already on the publishers' "coming soon" pages as I write against the deadline to submit the stories.

    But that pace has slowed down a bit now (yay!) so maybe I'll get a chance to do another trailer sometime soon!

  19. Congratz on the print release!!!

    My question is do you ever think about writing m/f fiction instead of m/m? If so what kind of story would it be, and if not, why not?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I actually have another question. Do you all of the marketing for your books yourself?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi Darshini,

    I never think of writing m/f fiction because to be honest, that sort of relationship doesn't interest me. I find gay characters to be more ... I don't know, daring? To be gay, even in today's society, can be scary, and to admit to loving someone of the same gender can be downright dangerous. That element makes the relationship worth something, in my eyes. I'd write f/f or lesbian stories before writing a heterosexual one. I just don't get the same sense of depth or meaning in m/f as I do in same-sex relationships (sorry!).

    As for marketing, I do 99.9% of it, yes. I pay Author Island to help spread the word, but I'm the one who works with bookstore owners and websites to promote my titles, not anyone else. I've learned that only a fraction of being published revolves around actually writing the story. The rest is marketing it to people who will read it.
