Writing M/M Romance

Writing M/M romance is more than just switching pronouns and knowing the difference between an American and a European cut suit. Two men bring with them different conflicts and different complications than a man and a woman, which results in a completely different approach to the time honored tropes of romance--and the creation of some unique tropes of our own.  This panel takes a look at plot devices and character types such as--

*  Boyslut and the prude vs. manwhore and the virgin
*  "It's forbidden!"
*  GFY or OFY
*  Bisexuality as "The Big Misunderstanding"
*  The Perils of Paul-- why gay romance means the end of the TSTL heroine as well as never having a TSTL hero in the first place
* Us against the world
* Tropes after marriage equality
*  Family ties
* And BDSM (and why not all M/M IS BDSM)

--And much more! Dreamspinner Press authors talk shop!
