Interpretation of coefficients in a glzGLM

Interpretation of coefficients in a glz

After a bidirectional step wise, I have the following generalized linear model:

Y = -8.18 + 1.18 v1 - 7.32 v2

In a simple linear model (with one explanatory variable), the coefficient of my variable corresponds to the slope of my line. If the coefficient is positive, the line goes up, if it is negative, goes down. If it's positive there is a positive relation between my explanatory variable and my dependent variable and if it's negative the relation too.

In a generalized linear model it is the same? In the example I give, v2 has a negative relation with my dependent variable? if there's more of v2 less of Y?

I think is a silly question, but I don't get it, I appreciate the help understanding this.
