Today I am so pleased to welcome Slade James to Joyfully Jay. Slade has come to talk to us about the new MM Author Podcast – He has an exclusive backstory episode just for Joyfully Jay readers! Please join me in giving Slade a big welcome!


Welcome to — the MM Author Podcast hosted by Slade James, where we get to hear from the writers of our favorite LGBTQ fiction and their collaborators.

We’re talking about the creative process behind these characters and their worlds.

At GRL with Slade James

Some of the most talented, hardest working, most successful authors in all of publishing are here in MM Romance. The talent is impressive, the stories are masterpieces, and the writers are lovely, funny, accessible people.

Many of the fans of Gay, LGBTQ, and MM Fiction are writers themselves. I want to know what their magic is and how we might adapt it for our own craft.

So, I’m interviewing them, recording the conversations, and sharing them with you!

The first round of author interviews features: Daryl Banner, Lucy Lennox, Lily Morton, Riley Hart and Neve Wilder. There are upcoming episodes with authors May Archer and Damon Suede, professional beta reader Leslie Copeland, and some of your favorite top audiobook narrators Michael Pauley, Joel Leslie, and Kirt Graves.

…and more!

I’ve created an episode called BACKSTORY, exclusively for readers of Joyfully Jay. (6:00 minutes)

You can subscribe to the show in Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or whatever app you prefer.
