Goodreads Choice Awards

As some of you may already be aware, Damon Suede's Hot Head has been nominated for the Goodreads Choice Awards in the Romance category. Hot Head has made it to the semifinals. Damon's novel is the only m/m story in the running.

Earlier this year, his story was mentioned on Andy Cohan's Watch What Happens Live on BRAVO. To my knowledge that is the first time m/m fiction has been recognized on television.

Now the same author has a chance to bring m/m to the attention of a wider audience on a site dedicated to authors, books and their readers. While m/m will likely always be a niche genre, there are still a large number of readers who have never heard of m/m.

We have the opportunity to give the genre more standing.

I personally enjoyed this novel and had no trouble voting for Damon's book in both rounds. I would be very please to see Hot Head win the category.
