I’m prepping for my first-ever convention panels, and I had a few questions I wanted to ask for help with. Feel free to answer in comments or email me at email@example.com.
1. Published authors: Did you start out writing fanfic (or do you still write fanfic)? How did you make the transition? Have you ever taken a story or story idea from one of your fanfic works and repurposed it for an original fic?
2. Readers: What are your favorite romance stories with BDSM or any similar harder-edged themes? (Any pairings-or-more welcome: M/M, M/F, F/F, menage; would particularly like any F/F recs. Feel free to recommend your own!)
3. Authors with day jobs: How much time on average are you able to devote to your writing career? (All aspects, not just writing.) Do you hope to be able to quit the day job eventually in favor of full-time writing?
Thank you for any help you can give! I’ll credit any comments I use, of course, so please let me know if you’d rather be anonymous.
