QueerRomance Ink

Queeromance Ink is the brainchild of J. Scott Coatsworth, with a lot of help from Kaje Harper and his husband Mark Guzman. The idea for the site was born in the aftermath of the closure of All Romance eBooks, when Scott, Kaje and other authors were looking for a place they could share their books and connect with readers.

Unlike ARe and other sites, we are not a distributor. Instead, we maintain a directory of LGBTIQA romance and related books, with links to purchase them from a variety of other sources, including publishers, distributors, and in many cases, the authors themselves.

Our mission: to connect queer romance readers to the authors and books that they love.

Vivid Seats

Vivid Seats was created out of a genuine love for attending live events…
We all feel the anticipation right after the lights go down. We remember the sounds of the orchestra pit tuning their instruments to deliver enchanting musical scores and standing ovations. We remember the blazing guitar solos, the last second scores, the come-from-behind wins, and the cheers of the fans. It’s no accident we’re named Vivid Seats…”vivid” comes from the Latin word “vivere” which means “to live”…and going to live events gives you the chance to live the music, live the culture, and live the glory that all generate the vivid memories and unique stories that will last a lifetime!
