Hello all! This has been a busy week. First off, the lovely Cate Ashwood
is a guest over at The Purple Rose Tea House
today chatting about her very first venture into M/M Romance and offering folks a chance to win a copy of her debut novel Keeping Sweets
♥ I'm happy to announce that I will be attending GayRomLit 2013
and RainbowCon 2014
♥ I will be attending GayRomLit
as a reader this year rather than an author. I spent a good deal of time fretting about this decision. Last year, I had an amazing time, met so many fantastic people, and I really wanted to go again this year. The number of author slots was limited and as a relative newbie, I didn't feel quite ready to take up a Featured Author slot, yet the Supporting Author slots were even fewer. I thought about my experience last year and what I enjoyed most. Above everything, I loved cutting loose and just hanging out with folks. I decided the heck with it. I love M/M Romance, and although I'm an author, I was a reader first. I'm still a reader, with favorite books, and favorite authors. I get ridiculously excited when I discover a new series or author, and stay up until an unholy hour because I decided to 'have a little read' before bed. I can't wait to see familiar faces and meet new ones. So I'll be there hanging about, causing mischief, and giving hugs. Feel free to join me in any of the above.
is a QUILTBAG-centric conference in its first year and I'm really looking forward to it. With the genre growing, it's exciting to see the way it's branching out and bringing folks together. I hope this is merely the beginning.
♥ This week has been more design focused than writing as I've been revamping a new website for Piper Vaughn
. It's close to completion, and I hope when it's unveiled both Piper and her readers love it. Piper picked a fantastic color theme, so stay tuned for that!
♥ Don't forget today is the last day to enter my contest. Just leave comment on the original post
. Contest ends at midnight, winner will be announced tomorrow, Sunday March 17th.
♥ For those of you looking for a free St. Patrick's read and haven't already read Endearing Young Charms
, you can read it here
. This is my sweet little short of how Bruce and Jace spent their St. Patty's Day.
♥ The M/M Romance Group
over at Goodreads is gearing up for their next writing event. Who fancies having me write them a story? I'm even opening myself up to other genres for it. :D
Hope you all have a great weekend!
