I recently finished a story that is mostly about a female thief. She is a lesbian. There is nothing graphic though although she has a relationship.
I have sent it two places and both editors admired the story but pointed me to publishers of gay stories. Or erotica. Can't a story have a gay character and yet be published in a mainstream outlet? I can easily imagine a publisher of gay-themed stories saying this is mostly about crime. Which it is.
What do you think, writers? Where would you send it?
