Hello everyone! I'm new here, as you can probably tell, haha. Hopefully I posted this in the right form, I wasn't exactly sure where it should go. Anyways, the title might seem a bit broad, but rest assured I have a much more in-depth query. To make it as brief as possible, I'm a young author - I will be turning 18 in a few months. I have yet to publish anything, but hope to do so in the near future. Specifically, a novel (that, if I'm able to expand on, would become a series). The plot that I'm primarily interested in writing revolves around two boys who completely loathe one another who find themselves in another world / universe, and learn they are reincarnations who were once princes in this fantasy world. Here's the thing- I would like these two to also learn they had some romantic feelings for one another in their past life. Yes, bisexual main characters, everybody. However, I don't want the book to be focused on romance or be considered an LGBT+ book. Why? That's not the point of the story. It's an adventure / fantasy book. The romance would only be a very subtle (and surprise!) element, and may only be brought up later on in the story if it were turned into a series. I guess what my question is..does this hurt my chances of getting published? Will I receive backlash for the sexualities of my characters or will publishing agencies turn away from me? I genuinely do not know much about the standing position of this topic in the writing world. I know there is a genre directed towards LGBT+ youth, but what about other genres? Am I walking on dangerous ice here as someone just starting out in the writing world? I appreciate any and all feed-back!
