What is with the Gay Brigade?

header

To some people they may take it reading the Gay Brigade and feel that maybe that there is a lack of story-line that random scenes just keep happening. And that is the point.

The Gay Brigade takes a year of their lives and recounts day to day activities, sure in all three of the later books something massive happens, dare I say a plot twist but these are regular guys, (Boys? Men?) with regular lives and that’s what I like about the series, it’s what I enjoyed, I could sit and write them just talking whilst getting into bed, there didn’t have to be a huge fight, there didn’t have to be a heated exchange of words, all it needed was the two boyfriends/husbands, talking and getting into bed. Because that’s what real people do and I wanted to make these 6 guys (and 2 kids) as real as it was possible.

Sure there’s a break-in, a nude picture leak and a car accident but they still live normal lives (with the exception of minor celebrities Dyan!)

I love the Gay Brigade it holds a place in my heart and always will! I hope you do to.

The End of a Series

END OF A SERIES

So that is it. I have reached the end of a series. This series has been about 4 years in writing and has sprouted many singular books alongside the original 4-part series. I have grown to love these characters, they mean a lot to me and I love finding new things for them to do or new ways to get them involved.

Now as we are nearing it’s end it’s actually beginning to hit home, that it’s the end of this series, my characters have pretty much grown up and there’s no more stories left for them, no more things that need explaining no more mysteries to solve

So I bid a farewell to the Gay Brigade. I will miss you
R.J.
The last book in the series is due out the 29th May.

Why I find it hard to write what I am!

asexual_flag_heart_stickers-r9f381639dc30483594741adac4c46b3c_v9w0n_8byvr_512

So I was thinking and I discovered that I find it difficult to write Asexual books even though I am asexual myself. Why? It’s simple.

I write romance.

I am FULLY aware that Asexual people can feel romantic feelings for other people and I have shown that in Ely, Jesse and Robin’s Guide to Asexuality, in this book there is a homosexual relationship (with sex included), a heterosexual relationship (with a limit of kissing) and an aromantic asexual who has a better relationship with his laptop! So, I know how to write a romantic asexual, but I still manage to find it somewhat difficult to do. My first attempt of a non-romantic asexual book was The Asexual Equation where Jake the anxious asexual doesn’t have one romantic thought enter his head, sure there is romance around him but he, himself never wants to experience it – although does willingly undertake his best friends biology experiments to help determent asexuality.

Recently, I’ve been writing a lot of asexual minor characters, who are a constant presence in the book but are not the main focus. However I am writing another asexual MC to come out at some point in 2016, he is a non-romantic asexual but is trying to adopt as he wants a family! It’s my first attempt at an adult asexual which has been very interesting to try and even more personal as I myself am starting to head that way.

Writing in two different time zones!

So, Gay Brigade: Darren and Luke comes out in about 14 days! But I got thinking because this one is setting half in California and half in Liverpool but not only that there is one American narrator and one British, I haven’t quite worked out if in this one I’ll be using American spellings as well as British that one is still a little hard to do (but the American does say mom instead of mum) but I have a second book Until Next Time which again is told in two different time zones, Liverpool and New York this however is told by twins, again one who is in American and one who is in British, this one however does have the different spellings in the different narrations.

It’s definitely a challenge and it’s also definitely one I’m enjoying undertaking but it is coming with it’s tasks!
