For any genre authors struggling with promo for their boks, Damon has teamed up with Heidi Cullinan to pen Your A Game, a guide to fiction promo built around the idea that genre publishing is an interactive, strategic game which authors, colleagues, and readers play together for fun and profit. For maximum flexibility and contextual benefits, they structured the text of Your A Game as a hyperlinked chooseable adventure game with branching paths.
Your A Game is divided into four sections (Brand, Presence, Market, Project) with appendices including exercises, checklists, and links to downloadable content on the A-game website. Rather than dictating a rigid set of instructions, the book examines the unique challenges of genre promo and proposes a strategy of authentic engagement and participation for long-term career success.
Where is the witty, sexy serialized melodrama of your gay romance dreams? Boxer Falls was a weekly homoerotic soap opera being posted at the M/M Romance Group at Goodreads every week in 2012. Ellis Carrington, Poppy Dennison, and Damon Suede and a host of your favorite scribes cut loose with suds and studs in abundance.
This project grew out of a desire to do some fun fast writing that could include a wide range of styles and stories. With its punchy episodes and high drama, it proved a great way for authors to cut loose and for readers to explore unfamiliar voices or subgenres. If you have an interest in over-the-top romance, come get soapy with us.
