Ruth Sims has a series of unofficial survey questions for readers of m/m romance .
Please reply personally to Ruth at RSNewsletter@insightbb.com
1) If m/m romances were readily available and easy to find in stores such as Barnes & Noble would you buy them?
2) Is the author’s perceived gender a consideration? Would you buy a m/m romance authored by a man?
3) Women tend to read in public a lot–doctor’s offices, etc. The following Amazon titles represent different types of covers. Which one would you be more likely to buy in a store? The titles below were chosen only for their covers as examples, with no consideration given to the author or story. Please just rank them 1 (would buy) 9 for bookstore “buyability”. We’re not collecting names or information, so any comments you care to make are welcome. The titles were chose at random from the Amazon Top 100 lists – gay fiction, and gay romance.
