News n’ stuff

Hi, peeps —

I’ve been doing a summer blast tour over at Women and Words. That means I’ve been interviewing authors on Fridays. So far, we’ve had two with the third lined up for this Friday. Each has done a book giveaway, so if you’re interested in some lesfic and gay dude fiction, come on by Women and Words Fridays to see who I’ve got in the hot seat.

This Friday it’s author Kate McLachlan, who writes time travel mystery/thrillers. I think you’ll enjoy her quirky characters and humor. For more info on her books, click here. You can visit Women and Words here.

You might be interested to find out more about authors RenĂ©e Bess (who writes pretty intense character-driven romances and romance-tery) and Lynette Mae, who writes thrillers starring military personnel or police personnel (set in the 1980s and 1990s). Click those links to check ’em out.

Also, there’s an auction under way to help avid lesfic reader/fan Kara Leonardo, who was severely injured in a car accident in February that claimed her partner’s life. The auction is helping raise funds to help her get settled in the wake of this terrible event. Several authors have donated books and other things to help out. You can find out more about that AT THIS LINK RIGHT HERE. The “Master List” page on that site lists everything up for auction. Thanks.

As for me, I’m hammering away on Far Seek book 3 and New Mexico 4. So I’m keeping busy! Hope to have the new Far Seek book to the publisher before the end of the summer. Keep yer fingers crossed…

Happy Monday!

Benefit Auction for Kara Leonardo

Hi, all–

I posted this same thing over at Women and Words. Nevertheless, I’m doing it here, too:

There’s a benefit auction going on until August 5th to benefit a woman named Kara Leonardo. Some of you may know her; she was very active on lesfic boards and FB in the past and has been an ardent supporter of lesfic. In February, she was involved in a car accident in which her partner was killed. Kara suffered serious injuries and is just now leaving rehab, but she’s facing another decision. She’s currently in Delaware, where she moved from Illinois to be with her partner. She’d like to stay in Delaware, but she doesn’t have many resources to help her do that. She may end up having to go back to Illinois, but again, resources are scarce for her. So the auction is to provide a bit of money for her to hopefully help her get settled.

ALL proceeds from the auction go to Kara.

You can read the specifics about Kara and the auction HERE.

Here’s the direct link to what books authors have offered for auction (it’s also accessible via the other link).

Thanks, and please share far and wide.
