Paula says:. Stephanie A says:. Mary says:. Ellie says:. Considering known information about the audience of romance novels, the reluctance of the traditional publishers is understandable. However, this logic creates a self-fulfilling prophecy in which, should the interest exist within the known romance audience, it would go unnoticed and unsupplied, driving those consumers once-again to the standard heterosexual romance novels or alienating potential consumers from the genre. It is also interesting to note that the sexual orientation of the readers surveyed was not investigated.
Without this information, it is more difficult to judge whether or not there is a potential target audience within existing readers. Even contemporary fiction remains difficult. Within fanfiction, it is easier for authors to undermine or completely ignore the existence of stigma and to place the focus of the story on the love story, rather than on the stigma itself. Fortunately, the rise of technology has allowed for the dissemination of this subgenre, but only within audiences who already know where to look.
According to Catherine Tosenberger in her discussion of Harry Potter slash fiction, the rise of Internet access means that writers have access to a wider audience than they might within brick-and-mortar bookstores that often do not have large selections of LGBT romance due to its low readership Within fanfiction, readers also have more opportunities to request any stories that they themselves might be interested in reading.
One of the disadvantages of fanfiction, however, is that, as its title implies, it must operate within the universe established by the creators of the original work. Fanfiction writers are often forced to impose their own interpretations and ideas on these works. This can cause discord within the fandom, as slash readers are often said to be twisting or rewriting the canon of the original work Tosenberger A transition from the mechanical to the emotional defines this progression from the narrow scope of sex to the broader range of love and romance.
Courtney Milan sums up the apparent conflict between what the romance community accepts as legitimate and what it dismisses as intolerable:. You can write about aliens from another planet that has tentacles or barbed sexual organs. You can write degrading rapes. No — when it comes to same-sex romance, the fact that they might be able to identify judges in their chapter or outside of it who would be willing to read same-sex entries and judge them fairly somehow becomes irrelevant.
This divide has caused many to question whether women can write authentic gay male romance. There are some women writers such as Erastes and Alex Beecroft, who sexually identify as gay men. In fact, Beecroft is married to a man and a mother of two kids. Women have dominated authorship in this subgenre for years; however, the issue that remains is whether straight women can write authentic gay relationships. In suggesting that men can simply turn their same-sex attraction on and off, authors who rely on the gay-for-you device unknowingly play into the belief that homosexuality is a choice.

In recent years, the rise of the eBook has also allowed for the expansion of the romance market beyond the scope of traditional publishing. Though traditional publishers exist within the realm of e-publishing, as well, the increased options for self-publishing have opened doors for writers who find themselves drawn to genres that might not be popular choices of traditional publishing houses. It cannot be overlooked, however, that heterosexual romance novels also include sex scenes, many of them explicitly written.
Furthermore, the subgenre continues to try and define itself based on its authorship and the authenticity of women authors. Sarhaan, the alpha male, embodies the masculine traits; whereas, the beta male, Caleb, is young, svelte, and feminine. Furthermore, these reinterpretations make it even harder for gay male writers to become successful within this subgenre. As Fessenden mentions in his blog:.
