MM Romance vs Gay Contemporary Romance

gay romance

It being Queer Romance Month, I decided to answer a question a reader posed to me some time back.

What is the difference between MM Romance and Gay Contemporary Romance?

Here are a couple of formulas to answer the question.

MM Romance:

a + b = HEA

Gay Contemporary Romance:

eix = cos x + i sin x = HEA (maybe, but not always – particularly if the variables are off or your imaginary numbers aren’t squared).

*Bonus points if you recognize the GCR formula.

*Major points deducted from your final score if you came to the erroneous conclusion that writing MM Romance is ‘easier’.

I hope that clarified things for you.
