The election is over! We are a handful of steps closer to marriage equality (My friend and Minnesota resident, Edmond Manning, wrote a really gorgeous essay about this)! I am even more psyched about that than I am not to be pelted by political ads on my doorstep, radio, youtube channels, and pretty much every effing where any longer. I think there may have been one sky-written above my kid’s preschool. Perhaps I’m getting paranoid.
GayRomLit is over! (boo, hiss) I went, I did a reading and a Boxer Falls panel, I signed things. I passed out swag and Gay Coffee. I hugged people who said they loved my books or that I looked pretty or just smiled at me because HELL I love to hug people and you never get tired of it, right?? Okay, I don’t. Everybody was so fantastic, it made my head spin. I hope to do it again next year. I roomed with the fabulous Amy Lane who is funny and clever, and a hell of a lot of fun. Not to mention, she has mad ninja skills for a woman with ten years on me. Twice she scared the everloving crap out of me, and I’m pretty sure both times I was naked. Do with that what you will.
Next year we are hoping to drag Mary Calmes along for the ride.
I am NaNo-ing. Life’s been crazy and I haven’t been able to finish a book in awhile, despite having three gay contemporary projects in mid-stream right now so I am buckling down to finish one (fucker) if I can possibly do it. Sanity intact, housecleaning, all optional.
Other miscellaneous news:
- Congrats to Mary on her release of But For You, the sixth book in her Matter of Time series, which a month after release is STILL on the Amazon LGBT romance best-seller’s list!
- The next book in Amy’s fabulous knitting series is up for pre-order at Dreamspinner Press! These read well as standalones, and are sexy and cute, so check it out A Knitter in His Natural Habitat.
- The third Husbands comic is out from Dark Horse! And Sharon Stogner from I Smell Sheep and Rarely Dusty books so nicely asked me to do a guest review for issues one and two, so keep an eye out for that soon. I haven’t gotten to read issue 3 yet, but it’s on my TBR list. Like the web series, the comics are hilarious and entertaining.
- Amber Kell’s birthday bash is going on now! I didn’t get the chance to participate in this one but Carol Lynne, Mary Calmes, and many others are. There will be prizes and whatnot so it is worth checking out.
