News n’ stuff

Greetings, dahlings!

Let’s have some news n’ stuff.

First, a call for submissions! My co-conspirator R.G. Emanuelle and I are doing an anthology that’s a continuation of sorts to our Lambda and Goldie finalist anthology, All You Can Eat: A Buffet of Lesbian Romance and Erotica.

The forthcoming anthology is called Order Up: A Menu of Lesbian Romance and Erotica. Behold:

AND GUESS WHAT? There’s still time to submit a story!

We chatted with Ylva and bumped the publishing schedule. So SEND US YOUR STORIES! The new deadline is January 15, 2016. HERE’S THE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. NOTE the new email address.

And speaking of Ylva, I just signed a Halloween-ish short-ish novel with them. It’ll be out around Halloween (duh). We’re still working on a cover and hopefully that’ll be done pretty darn soon so you can get all in the mood and stuff.

For now, you’ll have to settle for the synopsis (also at the link above):

Tabitha “Abby” Crane, a doctoral student working on her thesis, doesn’t allow herself much time outside academia. Fortunately, she’s managed to squeeze in a research trip over Halloween weekend to the historical society of Sleepy Hollow, New York, where she hopes to uncover new research on the notorious town’s most infamous legend—that of the headless horseman. But she has a personal stake in this trip: Abby’s own ancestor, Ichabod Crane, disappeared mysteriously over two hundred years ago, perhaps at the hands of the ghostly horseman.

Abby has no reason to expect anything of Sleepy Hollow beyond immersing herself in archival collections and enjoying its Halloween festivities, but then she crosses paths with Katie, who makes her head spin and her heart pound. Katie too has her own ties to the famous story. When the two women find what may be the key to the disappearance of Ichabod Crane so long ago, it becomes clear that Sleepy Hollow has plans of its own for yet another Crane.

Also, I have a couple of other things in the works that involve another novel before the end of the year and something to do with one of my series. Hope you stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, tell all your friends who write F/F to submit a story to me and R.G.! WOOOO!

Happy Monday!

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 Renée 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!
