About this author

(Please ignore the formatting of most of the "reviews" I have here. I foolishly tried to sync Goodreads with my Calibre library and somehow ended up with all my to-read books being given a "review" that basically consists of the blurb of the book. I still haven't had a chance to clean it all up.)

Amelia C. Gormley may seem like anyone else. But the truth is she sings in the shower, dances doing laundry, and writes blisteringly hot m/m erotic romance while her five year old is napping. When she’s not writing, Amelia single-handedly juggles her husband, her son, their home, and the obstacles of life by turning into a everyday superhero.

Ahhhhhh this is SUCH a big question!


What you’re describing is a very common and very loved trope in M/M romance: “Gay For You”. People eat it up, but there’s a lot of criticism of it, too. Here are some queer men and womens’s responses:

This was a wonderful fairy tale, witty and whimsical, sexy and silly, surprisingly touching at times, laugh-out-loud funny at others, and when the plot really got rolling, a complete page-turner.

“Well, I guess I don't say much, unless I've got something to say. Makes me not a lot of fun at parties. I'm really not great with small talk."

Gavin shrugged. "A lot of people feel like they have to fill every silence with noise, no matter how meaningless. I think it's interesting to find someone who isn't afraid of a little quiet.”
Amelia C. Gormley, Inertia

“Whatever happened after, even the loss, my life would be less if I had not had that. On the day I die, my only regret would be if I hadn't had it. If I had been too much a coward to take it while I had a chance.”
Amelia C. Gormley, Inertia

“The haunting and haunted remnants of an abandoned world. And in Darius’s arms each night, when reason returned and they lay together, drained and weary, Rhys decided there was something inescapably beautiful about the fact that they made these memories in ruined places.”
Amelia C. Gormley, Strain

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen

“1. Bullying is not okay. Period.

2. Freedom of religion does not give you the right to physically or verbally assault people.

3. If your sincerely-held religious beliefs require you to bully children, then your beliefs are fucked up.”
Jim C. Hines

“Freedom of speech does not protect you from the consequences of saying stupid shit.

Amelia C. Gormley, Strain

“I don’t need you to be perfect. I don’t need you to never make mistakes. I just need you to let me give you as much of myself as I can, and to trust that I will try as hard as possible never to hurt you intentionally. Can you do that? Can you just let me love you?”
