Blog Hop Against Homo/Bi/Transphobia 2015

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.

Ok, so what? I mean. Really, this is kind of a Folk Song Army sort of thing for most of the people who read this. It’s really easy to grandstand against the hatemongers in the world and Goddess knows, we have more than enough of them and they all seem to be coming out from under their rocks due to the marriage case at the Supreme Court.

But I’d like remind everyone in my own community that we’re hardly guilt free on this subject. I was horrified this week to come across an argument in an online lesbian forum from someone frothing at the mouth with some weird bi-phobic agenda. (Well, to be honest, she threw in an anti-trans slur as well, so she’s an equal opportunity bigot I guess.) More or less, if you ever touched a guy or you even thought about it, you didn’t qualify for Real Lesbian™ status and were unwanted lest you sully the purity of her bodily fluids or some nonsense.

It’s not like this post is going to change that person’s opinion if she reads it, but here’s something those of us willing to listen can do: stop tolerating bigotry in our own communities. That’s exactly what happened. This particular forum has no tolerance for intra-community prejudice and her post was removed as soon as the mods got to it. That needs to start being the rule not the exception. Silence really does equal consent and the same is true in our own community regarding bi and transphobia as it is when a school allows students to freely toss around “that’s gay” in their hallways and classrooms.

Ok. Lecture over. Now comes the reward. If you care to leave a comment at the bottom of this post, you’ll be entered to win a free e-book copy of Seven Minutes in Heaven as well as a pre-release e-book of Our Demented Playdate when I finally finish it. I’ll be pulling winners at the end of the Bog Hop on the 24th.

Getting There!

I am really trying very hard not to be a one hit wonder and I wanted to drop a line and mention that I am making progress on my next book. January to May is the busiest time of the year at work and also the most stressful and I really found myself sitting down and just not wanting to write.

Glad tidings though, the project is at rest and I’m sitting down every day and writing. Also, while I wasn’t really in the mood to write, I did a lot of outlining of scenes and they’re going pretty quick. I should be finished in another week and my hope is the book will be out by the end of June depending on how quickly my editor can get to it.

The title, unless lightning strikes me with a new inspiration, will be Our Demented Play Date. It’s about two seventeen year old girls who’re dragged on what they assume will be a boring family vacation during which they’re expected to make nice as if they’re little kids on a play date. Well, it turns out they have a lot in common.

After Play Date, I’m torn between another Cape Cod story set in Provincetown and an idea I’ve had kicking around my head inspired by my time working at a pizza joint in college.

Reviews & Interviews & New Works

First things first. I apologize to all of you for the delays, but I am working on a new book. Really! I am! I feel like it’s taking forever and I apologize, but I’m hopeful it will be out towards the end of May. A book set on the beach that you could take with you to Cape Cod on Memorial Day weekend!

Or that’s the goal.

In the meantime, I did an interview with author and blogger Lynn Lawler that I really enjoyed. She also wrote a review of Seven Minutes that’s left me blushing! I hope you’ll check them out along with the rest of her blog. She’s featured a lot of great les-fic authors.
