Title: Love Is Always Write – Volume Four
Author: Various Authors
Genre: MM Romance
The stories in Love is Always Write anthology celebrate love, sex and romance between men. They are a product of the Love Is Always Write promotion sponsored by the Goodreads M/M Romance Group and they are free.
The Goodreads M/M Romance Group invited members to choose a photo and pen a letter or story prompt asking for a short M/M romance story inspired by the image; authors from the group were encouraged to select a letter or story prompt and write an original tale.
I’ve read many free shorts written for promotions such as Don’t Read in the Closet, Love Has No Boundaries and Love Is Always Write, and though I found some gems, I seriously start to feel that authors don’t put enough effort into these stories.
I don’t think I have to, so I never rate them high just because they are free. Yes, they are free gifts for us readers, but also a (free) advertising possibility for them writers. If I read a brilliant story for free, I very possibly will seek out the other works of the author. That simple.
I read these collections because I want short and fun stories, and I hope to find new authors. So I think not putting enough effort into writing these novellas is a wasted possibility for both authors and readers.
