Librarian by day, storyteller by night, Alex Draven writes queer romance, alternative love stories, and erotic tales from the shadows.
More specifically I write erotic romance about men who love men - the sort of fiction that gets called gay romance, queer love, original slash, yaoi, m/m erotic romance, and probably a hundred other things.
A lot of the stories I write have an alternative twist - alternative in the sense of writing about goths and men who love metal or industrial music as well as loving men, and alternative in the sense of non-conventional relationships, unconventional definitions of attractive, and ways of expressing love and lust that maybe fall outside the norm.
If you share my tastes, or enjoy romance with a twist, I hope you'll enjoy my stories.
I'm an omnivorous reader, and have learned never to say 'never' about genres I might write, but the vast majority falls into two main categories; contemporary erotic romance, and urban fantasy (or paranormal) erotic romance.
I have e-books for sale in several formats - you can buy them for your Kindle direct from Amazon, and direct from my publisher in Adobe Reader .pdf, MobiPocket .prc, Microsoft Reader .lit, or universal .html format.
I also have free fiction ready for you to read, and hopefully enjoy.
Two new reviews - Saffron Stains and Staytape
5 stars from Rainbow Reviews - The two lovers come from very different backgrounds, and that is very nicely detailed in these pages. As is their love and commitment, the way that even in pain and discord they never forget each other.... The intrigue and the subplots are so captivating that one cannot help but enjoy it. Go read!
Joyfully Reviewed - Stay Tape is a cute and funny story... Stay Tape is great when you need a chuckle and a little uplift in your day.
