So I have written three YA novels in the past 4 years one being about a gay painter and the other two a duo about a gay musician. The novels explore many topics but they do have the homosexual artist type as the protagonist. Do you think it will be detrimental in targeting the audience? I do not want to be labelled as a gay niche writer becuse the main topic is the life of an artist. They just happen to be gay because it makes it easier for me to explore their sensuous side, their feelings and it plays into the inadequacy of the tormented artist-type.
