Celebrating Male Authors in the M/M Romance genre

I thinks it's time we celebrated the male authors** in the M/M Romance genre. Many of these are picked by my friends on Facebook. There were books that cropped up time and again, but also new ones that I hadn't heard about before. Some authors had multiple choices so I picked one, not always the obvious choice. 

Here are they are in no particular order. If I've missed one of your favourite authors out please leave a comment and I'll add them to the list. Guys, if I left you off the list, apologies. Again leave a comment and I'll add you on. I want everyone!

  10. Thanks for including me on your list, Sue! =) =) =)

    Here are a few others.

    Bey Deckard:

  11. Lachi Denali
    Adam Stevens
    D.W. Skinner
    Michael Bowler
    Aisling Mancy
    Michele Micheal Rakes ( technically female, but identifies as male)

  12. Rob Colton
    What has surprised me is the number of male writers that are using a non gender specific name. I know people have accused female writers of doing that to "cover up" the fact that they are women. Not that I care I just like reading!

  13. Great list. Thanks so much for including me.

  14. Love reading gay romances by gay men. Others to add:

    Richard Stevenson (the Donald Strachey series is legendary!)
    Michael Rupured
    John Amory
    Erik Orrantia
    Ben Ryder

    1. I agree about the Donald Strachey series but is Richard Stevenson an M/M writer or a gay fiction writer?

  15. Gabriel Belthir identifies as male.

  16. I feel awkward about adding my own name, but maybe that's an indication of how well I'm known. My book The Companion finaled in the Lammies this year in the Gay Romance category. I can send a copy of the cover, if you want it.

  17. What a great list, Sue! <3

  18. Mark Zubro
    Greg Herron aka Todd Gregory
    Gregory Harris
    William Maltese
    Josh Aterovis
    Joseph Hansen
    Michael Nava
    Matt Converse
    Mark McNease
    Jack Byrnes
    Brad Vance

  19. I'm working my way through your list now. Jack and Brad are already on there but thank you for all the others.

  20. Oh I just saw this!! Thanks for including me, Sue xoxo
