I am thinking over the atheist idea. Inter-religional instead of inter-racial...

Of course, Alex and I are the loons who wrote a Christian m/m romance.

I have reason to think we actually managed to annoy *pagans* with that one...

Rock stars is always good theme, though there seem to be more of available in m/m fiction than in straight here lately. The Atheist idea has my brain scrambling full steam ahead though. That one could be fun to write.

I love this. As a publisher I wish readers would tell us this more often!

I was actually blogging(aka meandering musing via my fingertips) about faith and sex on my blog a week or so ago. I'm not religious, but it's something I notice an obvious lack of in erotic romance.

You should check it out, though it might only make sense to me rofl!

I did read that post and found it very interesting. I think there could certainly be more faith-content in erotic romance, in mainstream romance--and also more explicit atheist, realistic paganism etc etc :)
