An M/M Romance Collection

volume four

Introduction

Don’t Read in the Closet

An M/M Romance Collection

volume four

M/M Romance Group Publication ©2011

Edited by Diane W.

Introduction

The stories you are about to read celebrate love, sex and romance

between men. They are the product of the
Hot Summer Days

promotion sponsored by the Goodreads M/M Romance group and are

published as a free gift to you.

What is the
Hot Summer Days
promotion?

The M/M Romance group invited members to choose a photo and

pen a letter asking for a short M/M romance story inspired by the

image; authors from the group were encouraged to select a letter and

write an original tale. The result was an outpouring of creativity that

shined a spotlight on the special bond between M/M romance writers

and the people who love what they do.

Over 100 stories were submitted and published as a four volume

set titled
Don’t Read in the Closet
; this edition is volume four.
A

written description of the images that inspired each story is provided.

If you’d like to view the real deal, please feel free to join the

Goodreads M/M Romance group (www.goodreads.com) and visit the

discussion section:
Hot Summer Days Letters.

Whether you are an avid M/M romance reader or new to the

genre, you are in for a delicious treat.

Words of caution and credit …

The stories in this collection are sexually explicit and intended for

adult readers. The ebook is distributed free by the M/M Romance

Dedication

As you can imagine, coordinating over 100 authors, proofing their

work and publishing it both online and in eprint
for free
involved

hundreds of hours of (volunteer) work.

First and foremost, this project never would have happened

without the tireless dedication and leadership of M/M Romance

Group moderator
Jen McJ
. Jen managed every stage of an

unmanageable project and spun order out of chaos. That level of focus

and organization is unnatural and we should fear her.

A good leader starts with a good team. Jen’s team of co-

moderators
Moderatrix Lori,
Jason
and
Juniper
had to endure

reading and proofing nearly two thousand pages of hot, steamy man-

on-man action, those poor lucky bastards! And group member,
Diane

who fed over one million words of text into her alchemy machine and

pulled out volume after volume of mobi/Kindle, ePub, PDF and Html

ebooks.

Finally, this book is dedicated to all the authors who put pen to

paper (or more accurately fingers to keys) and created the wonderful

original stories you are about to read. Thank you.
