The book isn't even one (1) day old and it's being slammed by the bisexual community. Do you agree?
CROSSOVER: Straight Men ~Gay Encounters (Icon Empire Press ebook $7.99) is a new series of short stories that looks at the taboo topic of heterosexual men having had gay encounters. It has drawn sharp criticism from people in the bisexual community.
“This ebook does not reflect bisexuality because many (bisexuals) lead happy and meaningful lives,” says Jon S. a participating member of SOC.BI (a bisexual community forum). The book is criticized because the “crossover” is from straight to gay. Many bisexuals don’t identify with this book because it doesn't establish a transition into bisexuality.
The book tries to avoid any reference to bisexuality because most of the main characters self identify as heterosexual. It is geared toward women to help them gain an understanding in the thought processes of desire in men.
Does the bisexual community have a right to be upset?

There is a dedicated thread, "Read My Book," for authors to post their new releases instead of individual threads here in the forum.
Good luck with your book.
