Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Michael Barnette:
When I ran a publishing house and was trying to increase the available f/f and advertised the hell out of the need, we received no submissions. I did hear from a fair number of lesbians on a forum that most of them didn’t read fiction. The topic just died due to lack of interest. Maybe things have changed a bit and there are more readers now?
We know there’s a market out there for FF fiction. But how do you reach it as an author? Does it have its own idiosyncrasies, likes, dislikes, and rules? If authors want to branch out and write more lesbian characters, how do they reach this market?
