A New Blog Thing: Theme Week!

Well, now that the freebie offer has come to an end, I wanted to try something new and different here on Kate Davies Blogs! So here it is, the inaugural edition of THEME WEEK.

What's that, you say? Theme Week?

Just for fun, all the posts during Theme Week will connect, in some way, to the chosen theme. They won't happen all the time (I'm not focused enough to come up with a new theme every week), but when the mood hits, I'll share.

This week's theme, I blame on Maia.

See, up until a year or two ago I read almost exclusively hetero romance. Then my buddy Maia decided to start submitting her work, and I offered to beta-read her stuff before she sent it out. And Maia writes m/m romance.

Wow! A whole new genre of romance to explore. And I'm not the only one. M/m romance has been growing in popularity recently, both in books and on TV shows and movies. So in honor of this first Theme Week, here's the schedule for the next several days:

Tomorrow, we'll be doing Book BIN Tuesday a little differently. I'm looking for suggestions for good m/m romance, both authors and individual books. So it's your chance to tell me what to Buy Now!

Wednesday, I confess all in Kate's Current TV Crush.

Then, on Thursday, I'll be sharing an interview with the creative minds behind eskimokissproject. You won't want to miss this one!

I hope to see y'all on the blog this week. And as an added bonus, all comments this week will be put in a drawing for a prize! (Possibly, but not necessarily, m/m romance related. I've got to mix things up a little, you know!)

Prize winners -- for this week, and for last week's Lessons In Trust drawing -- will be posted next weekend. So comment early, comment often!
(And stay tuned for next week's theme -- Young Adult fiction!)

Claire Thompson....TA Chase....I will try to add to this when I get home. This is just off the top of my head.

I haven't read many m/m romances, but I did enjoy William Maltese's "Tusks."

I don't read too many m/m romances, but I have to second Natasha's recommendations. What I've read from both Claire Thompson and TA Chase is really amazing.
