Please take a moment to read about Brandon, his books, and his fight against cancer at the following links. No one should have to worry about money at a time like this, so I’m asking you to consider helping by buying his books and/or donating money.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that men do not read or write romance novels… unless they are attempting to “cash in” or use phrases like bodice ripper or burning desire (for example: these two snarky gentlemen).

I spoke with a few of them and about the portrayal of men in the genre, how people react to them, and how to make these books more appealing to dudes.
