My long-term goal is to write a mainstream (not gay centric) book, and Kindle direct publishing is a very intriguing option! Circumnavigation would, I think, not be too acceptable to a straight audience, though one of my past novels had a significant readership of straight military types, due to the content. (many of whom hated the gay aspects). I do plan to give a mainstream novel a whirl soon.
I have to reluctantly announce a hiatus of two weeks, due to me falling way behind in writing. The next chapter should be posted on or before Jan 9th.
