I was reading an interesting blog today. This topic of conversation seems to crop up here and there in the Facebook groups I tend to participate in (not as often as it should in my humble opinion). Why are persons of color, older women, persons with disabilities, etc so under-represented in lesfic (or in literature in… Read More Relateable Characters
Okay, maybe this interview wasn’t exactly filled with super juicy information, but there still might be a few things to learn about me. Although I am generally very candid whenever asked a question….maybe too candid since my wife often thinks I land squarely in the Too Much Information category. Since I am traveling to Austin… Read More Dishing the Dirt…
I’ve never once considered myself an author who writes romantic comedy. Yet in one week’s time, I will be sitting in front of real people with that deer in the headlights look as I try to cobble together my thoughts on humor in lesfic. I was put on this panel at the Lonestar Lesfic Conference… Read More Accidental Humorist
Side Topic: Okay I am going to take a short diversionary journey right now because I’m on a mission. I’ve been joking lately about breaking the plexiglass ceiling by having a lesbian romance cover finally make it into the top three. Plexiglass because it seems so much harder and more difficult to break than its more… Read More SciFi Lesbian Style
I had my blog almost written. I was ready to go and then I couldn’t get my hands on the final piece of information needed to complete the blog. So, I was forced to punt and think up a new topic. Hopefully, I’ll do my original blog next week on SciFi Lesbian style. I have… Read More Re-runs
The most interesting conversations occur on Facebook. This past week as I was combing through the posts, I came across an invite to a group titled, Prostitution Research and Education. Granted, from time to time I get added to groups I have zero interest in or receive invites to others that seem only marginally relevant… Read More Lesbian Prostitutes?
This past week I was joking around on Facebook about how those unsightly extra pounds have developed a loving and committed relationship with my waistline. I further remarked that who was I to break them apart. After all, at my age, commitment is important. My rationalization, as Lila Bruce joked, “to eat my weight in girl… Read More Girls Scouts, Lesbians & Conspiracy Theory
The other day I was reading a post on the lesbian equivalent of a home run. You know, that male idiom for someone getting lucky with a lady. It was a darn good question and we bantered around things like maybe third base is under the panties, and a home run requires either a little tongue… Read More New Lesbian Idioms
I had no frickin idea what to write about this week and several topics came to mind. At first, I was going to write this heavy topic about history and how it can teach us valuable lessons if we’d only let it do that for us. But, I didn’t want to get all maudlin on everyone.… Read More Business or Hobby?
With Ali Spooner’s upcoming book, Diamond Dreams, I got to thinking about my youth and sports. I always enjoyed playing basketball and baseball, climbing trees, fishing, and riding motorcycles…yeah all the things a little tomboy would do. I didn’t like dolls, I liked trucks. When we played dress up, I wanted to be the boy and… Read More Baby Dyke Wanna Be
