2024 Author Interview Questions –

HARLOWE SAVAGE

Harlowe Savage is a 29-year-old queer author dedicated to creating stories that depict queer romances. She firmly believes that the gap between the amount of LGBTQIA+ erotica and heterosexual erotica in the mainstream is far too large and intends to rectify this through normalizing queer romance and increasing the accessibility of the genre. In her free time, Harlowe enjoys reading, watching anime, studying languages, writing fan fiction, and spending time with her loved ones.

Tell us about the genre(s) you write and the type of characters you love to write about.

I write queer, historical romance; though I have recently been brought on to work on a more… fantastical based spicy, queer romance project that I am also very excited about. I love writing characters that haven’t previously been given the depth and character development that they deserve. Just because a book is spicy, doesn’t mean it also can’t tug at your heartstrings and have you rooting for the character’s overall success.

Do you have a new book or series?

The second book in the Queer Historical Romance series, Emperor Ai came out November 1st of 2023 and recounts the love story between China’s most notoriously bisexual emperor, Emperor Ai of Han and his lover Dong Xian. 2024 will bring the publication of the third book in the series, more information to come soon!

Which tasks/projects do you find you tend to procrastinate on and why?

 I tend to procrastinate on actually sitting down to do the writing. Once I sit down and actually get into it, I can write for hours at a time, it’s just a matter of starting.

If you had to pick any character in one of your books, who is most similar to you, who would you choose? Why?

Barsine, from Alexander. Without spoiling anything or hinting too much at the role she ends up playing in the story, Barsine has a lot of my humor and stubbornness. She’s been through a lot and is determined to stand up for herself despite the potential consequences, even if she doesn’t always know the right way to go about it.

If you were transported to the setting of the book you're currently reading or writing, where would you be?

Well, I am currently reading the Heaven’s Official Blessing series, so I suppose my answer would be ancient China. If you saw a doorway/portal in the middle of the forest, would you enter it? No. Anyone who has ever dabbled in paganism of any kind will probably know why lol.

What do you wish you were better at?

 I wish I was better at understanding what neurotypical people want from me in any interaction, honestly.

What is something you say a lot?

 It really do be like that sometimes.

What do you do when no one is around?

Read fan fiction and do puzzles.

When running away for fun, where can you most likely be found?

Either a library, bookstore, tea shop, or thrift store.

Where is one place you don't like to be?

Anywhere enclosed or too crowded. I like to be able to move freely and leave if I need to. Therefore, elevators are my worst nightmare.

You get in trouble, who are you most likely with?

Probably my friend Maddison. We’ve known each other for close to 22 years now and we tend to feed off of each other’s chaotic energy when we are together.

What are one of your quirks?

 I like to be left alone when working, all the better to devolve into my full gremlin form until my task is completed. It’s how I work best.

Will you be attending any book signings or conventions?
