By the time this post appears I should be on my way to New York City for BookExpo America (aka BEA). If you’ll be there and want to say hi, text me! Looks like I’ll be at the show Tuesday and Wednesday if all works out with badges and such? (If you know anyone who has an extra, I could use it…) Thursday will be the Lambda Literary Awards. I was a judge this year and I can tell you queer representation at publishers large and small is alive and well.
Then on Friday the 27th I will be reading at the annual Bi Lines event: Bi Lines IV: A Celebration of Bisexual Writing in Reading, Music & Culture. An impressive number of the finalists in the bisexual fiction category will be reading that night!
I’m looking forward to seeing Nora Olson and Ann Herendeen again, both of whom I met at Saints & Sinners and who are on the slate, too.
Come to the biggest bi culture event of the year in NYC: amazing authors, live music and a bi art exhibit!
