We have a few sweeter M/M romances as well, but we specialize in the dark, dirty, and dangerous side of M/M, full of bikers, bad boys, mafiosi, and scorching hot romance. That already puts us in a niche, but it’s not exactly the reason we’ve decided to start a Patreon.
Oftentimes the risky book goes on the backburner in our brains. We hope that Patreon will give us the freedom to write those obscure, weird, dark, and wonderful books you will enjoy. One of our most popular books, “Laurent and the Beast” was one of those stories that had spent 2 *years* waiting for its moment to shine. Because - gothic M/M biker romance with time travel and the devil - who will read that, right?
And then there is the issue of writing series, which brings us to our most prominent Patreon project for 2018, “Guns n’ Boys”. Pulpy, dark, yet filled with inappropriate humor, this series isn’t for everyone, which instantly makes it a harder sell, but its main characters, Seth and Domenico, are so deeply rooted in our hearts that we refuse to compromise. The series is now at six books, with at least seven more planned, and we will never give up on our vision for it, but we also have to be realistic about publishing.
With each new book in a series, a part of the readership disappears, some readers choose to not read a series until it’s finished, some pirate the books, killing the possibility of writing books for this series more than once a year.
If you already buy the books, I know it’s a lot to ask, but if you want to see more of Seth and Domenico, support indie writing free of worry if a book is “commercial” enough, and get LOADS of goodies and fun fiction in the meanwhile, we will greatly appreciate your support on Patreon!
Check out all the support tiers to find out what kind of surprises we have prepared!
The books themselves will be published as usual, on AMAZON, but depending on Patreon results, we will be able to write more “Guns n’ Boys” books in 2018, commission custom goodies and illustrations, and offer you lots of flash fiction, slice-of-life snippets with the characters, side character point of view stories, and more, including a monthly opinion column by Domenico Acerbi himself - “Since you didn’t ask”!
