Do you like gay fiction? If you want to escape into a book and leave the real world behind, I’ve got you covered. I’ll give you stellar character development and intense plots to immerse yourself in, and know you’re heading toward a happily ever after, every time.
Hi, I’m Devon Vesper, and I write unashamed escapist fiction that centers around hot, hunky gay men, and maybe a nerd or three. The novels I write allow 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 my early years, I’ve voraciously read the M/M romance genre and quickly fell in love with the gay community. It always made me feel safe and welcome. However, while reading, I noticed that there is a distinct lack in escapist fiction with gay characters. Almost every book I read had a coming out story and trauma linked to that story. Each book I read contained some form of hate against the gay community that the characters had to navigate around to reach their HEA. Now, I 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, I want 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.
That’s my promise to you: I will give you awesome books about gay men in fantasy or paranormal settings, without focusing on the fact the men are gay or on social stigmas surrounding the gay community, but on the story and the romance. Leave reality behind and let me show you a new world.
I’m a mother, furbaby spoiler, and a girl who can’t get enough of pretty, pretty boys. As a kid, I traveled the world, too young to appreciate the gift I was given, but now those adventures spur on stories that my brain just can’t keep up with. Well, my brain tells me it keeps up just fine, but my fingers are the slow ones. I’ll let you decide. But the boys, man. The boys I remember make my heart sizzle looking back on them. Being a kid at nude beaches, I never cared, but looking back on those memories of Sicily, WHEW! There are some really great childhood images that I wish I could have been an adult to savor.Home is some place I call “rustic”. I’m used to large cities, stores everywhere, gas stations on every corner. Here in rural Pennsylvania, it’s rustic and beautiful. And quiet. Too quiet. With all this quiet, all there is to do is write stories, and let the hot men in my head out to play. We all benefit, yes? I like this development. The only thing I dislike about this rusticness is the fact I can’t find a coffee shop that sells a proper chai latte. They make it from powder. Ew. This makes for a disgruntled Dev. Ugh. I miss my chai.
Most of all, I am a down-to-earth southern girl at heart from spending 16 years in Florida. If you chat with me, you’ll hear endearments like darlin’, sweetheart, and hon/hun/hunnie. It’s who I am, and if we chat, you’re almost instantly family, so get used to it.
Social media is the bane of my existence. I either spend way too much time there, or I ignore it completely. I’m flighty like that. Most of my focus goes to my writing, so hopefully my folly is excused in this area! But, if you message me on Facebook or Twitter, I’ll almost always get back with you within a day or so. So, where can you find me?
I’d especially love it if you followed me on BookBub to help me get more of a chance at landing ads in their newsletters. Following me there will earn you many, many hugs!
