Why Straight Women Love Gay Romance by Geoffrey Knight is out!

The non fiction book by Geoffrey Knight on Gay Romance for which I gave an interview, among other 35 ladies, is finally out!


It's one of the world's biggest secrets, and it's about to come out...Why do straight women love gay romance?

What is it that attracts straight women to the idea of two men falling in love? Is it the muscles? The mystery of the male mind? The idea of true love overcoming all odds? How has it changed who these women are and how they see the world? And how powerful is this once-silent army of readers in the fight for equality?

35 women across 9 countries and 4 continents---from the world's bestselling romance authors to the biggest female fans of Gay Male Romance---are about to reveal... Why Straight Women Love Gay Romance.

I'm really, really glad since I read through the different interviews and had the chance to understand better even myself LOL And then it was nice to meet again old friends, but also find new fellow Gay Romance readers. The list is long, but I hope Geoffrey will not mind if I name them all: Ally Blue, Amelia, Amy, Anke, Anne Brooke, Carol Lynne, Dawn Roberto, Dolorianne, Elisa (me!), Erica Pike, Helen Beattie, J. Rose Allister, Jen Treadway, Jet Mykles, Kimberly Garden, Kris Jacen, Laura Baumbach, Lynn, Norma Nielsen, P.L. Nunn, Petchie, Poppy Dennison, Ro, Sheri, Stephani Hecht, Suzanne Brockmann, Wave, Z. Allora.

And now since I LOVE the short bio Geoffrey wrote for me, I will repost it... I know, I know, it's HUGELY EGOISTIC, but well, I have a HUGE EGO!:

Elisa is truly the principessa of Gay Romance. Her website — elisa-rolle.livejournal.com — is one of the most comprehensive online journals dedicated solely to gay literature, art, and film ever created. A successful, multi-lingual career woman in her own right, Elisa’s job takes her all around the world, yet not only does she somehow manage to still find the time to review books, run competitions, write articles and interview authors for her site, in the last few years Elisa also launched the Rainbow Awards, an online annual awards event that iudges hundreds of gay titles in dozens of categories. Elisa is also one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and when I found out why she loves gay romance so much, her reason was iust as sweet as she is!

Well, now what can I say? I love you Geoffrey!
