Devon Vesper writes unashamed escapist fiction that centers around hot, hunky gay men, and maybe a nerd or three. The novels she writes allows you to sink into worlds where being gay is not only accepted, but is a social norm. Here, the focus of the story isn’t about the angst and social perils that the real world offers the LGBT community, but the fantasy and romantic elements that you crave. In these worlds, you’ll see gay men facing down evils, corruption, and internal struggles as they try to get to their happily ever after. And there is always a happily ever after, guaranteed.
Since her early years, Devon has voraciously read the M/M romance genre and quickly fell in love with the gay community. It always made her feel safe and welcome. However, while reading, she noticed that there was a distinct lack in true escapist fiction with gay characters. Almost every book she read had a coming out story and trauma linked to that story. Each book contained some form of hate against the gay community that the characters had to navigate around to reach their HEA, or that affected their lives in some way. Devon won’t ever discount the struggles of the LGBT community. Prejudice and hate are a real and terrifying problem for most in this beautiful community. But, she wanted to give people a safe place, one where the outside world can’t touch you, one where you can sink into the fantastic worlds and beings and forget about the hate for a while.
Her promise, is to give you awesome books about gay men in fantasy or paranormal settings, without focusing on the social stigmas and prejudice surrounding the gay community, but on the story—the romance, fantasy, and adventure. Leave reality behind and let her show you a new world.
Social media is the bane of Devon’s existence. But, if you message her on Facebook, she’ll almost always get back with you within a day or so. So, where can you find her?
