Hey, all–

I’ve been chasing merry elves around and thus haven’t had a chance to swing by and remind y’all that my other site, Women and Words, is having its giant, massive, crazy, blow-out book giveaway event!


It’s Day 6, and we give away around 20-30 books EACH DAY, primarily lesfic/books with strong women protagonists. So swing by and get in on the fun. Go over to Women and Words and all you have to do is leave a comment.

Here’s the main link — that’s good for the next 6 days!

Hope to see you there!


You guys, I have been really freakin’ busy over at Women and Words with Jove and the blogger crew and all the merry elves and reindeer getting things ready for our annual Hootenanny over there.

What is this Hootenanny, you ask.

It’s a giant, massive, outta control WTF no they di’n’t omg they’re serious how did that even happen where did all these prizes come from BOOK GIVEAWAY.

TWELVE DAYS, friends. TWELVE DAYS OF BOOK GIVEAWAYS. New lists of authors every day, and publishers also get into it. There are books flinging hither and yon.

And this year, we’ve got super swag on Rafflecopter, which might just include a couple of Kindle Fires. Guess you’ll have to check it out to see.

When does all this merriment start, you ask.


So we run this crazy from December 12-December 23. SO COME ON DOWN!

Here’s the link to Women and Words.

And here’s an example from last year of the crazy we got up to.

Myth and Magic anthology

Hiya, peeps!

As a lot of you know, I’ve been crazy bizzy over at Women and Words, the site I co-admin with my awesome colleague Jove Belle doing the Hootenanny, our massive 12-day book giveaway. We’re on Day 10, so things are winding down, which is kinda sad because it is crazy festive over there.

At any rate, Bold Strokes Books JUST RELEASED (as in, 3 days ago) the anthology Myth and Magic: Queer Fairy Tales, edited by Radclyffe and Stacia Seaman.

I bring this up, dear readers, because I have a short story in this anthology. Most of you probably were not aware that I do, on occasion, write paranormal. This is one of those occasions. (MUAH HA HA!) You can also find another of my paranormal stories in Wicked Things: Lesbian Halloween Short Stories (Ylva Publishing, edited by Jae and Astrid Ohletz).

That short story in Wicked Things may have spawned a series of novellas from my brain. Stay tuned for more on that.

It’s not that big a stretch for me to write paranormal. I grew up on a steady diet of spec fic (mostly sci fi and fantasy), in which all manner of creatures and magic are expressed. So when Bold Strokes put out the call for this anthology, I thought it would be fun to write a story for it, whether it was picked up or not. I’m extremely pleased that it was, of course. Heh. There are a lot of great authors and stories in the collection, so if you’re interested in re-tellings of fairy tales with queer twists, this may be for you.

And if you’re interested, here’s a review of Myth and Magic.

So get on back to the Hootenanny! Get signed up! Today is, coincidentally, paranormal day over there and a copy of Myth and Magic is up for grabs!

Happy Solstice!


Hiya, peeps!

Well, I’ve been way busy with the merry elves and all my cohorts over at Women and Words getting ready for our giant huge massive crazy nutso book giveaway extravaganza.

12 days of giveaways. Different lists of authors every day. And publishers.

It’s kind of insane and it takes us a while to get prepped. We start compiling lists around September, though it’s not unusual for people to approach us right after we end to get on the list for the next year.

Anyhoo, we launched today and we’re doing this dog n’ pony show through the 23rd! We post at 9 AM EST every day and have drawings every night at 10 PM EST US. It’s predominantly feminist/lesfic, so if that’s your bag, head on over. Or if you’re new to the world of lesfic, here’s your chance to get some exposure to bunches of different authors writing all kinds of genres as well as the houses that publish them.

Here’s Day 1, so you know what you’re about to get yourself into:

Come on down for some festivating!

Happy Friday, Happy Hootenanny!

What’s going on: Hootenanny and projects

Hey, peeps —

‘Scuse my absence. I’ve been mondo busy because we are putting on another Hootenanny at Women and Words this year.

For those of you not in the know, we did a Hootenanny in 2010. That is, for 12 days, we did nothing but give books away to spread holiday luuuuuv and cheer. Probably 5-8 books every single day for 12 days.

We’re doing it again this year, and we’re giving away even MORE books. Hit the link above for the list of authors and how it works. So I’ve been working with my colleague Jove Belle on that, and coordinating with authors and getting the stuff ready because we launch that pup next week. December 12th, my friends. Go git yew some.

Also, just so you know, I finished the manuscript for the third Far Seek book. It’ll be off to the publisher this weekend. I’m hard at work on New Mexico 4 (which features Chris Gutierrez), and hope to have that finished in the next 3-4 months. And then I’ve got some romances in the pipeline, including another novella for Kindle. 😀

And, in case you wanted to get in on a discussion about erotica as a genre, I posted “Respect the Sex!” today over at Women and Words.

I know. Things are crazy this time of year. Here. Have a reminder about things I’ve learned to help get through the holidays.

All right, all. Happy reading, happy writing, happy Friday!
