Sunday Entertainment: Nov 12, 2011

20111109-083717.jpgHere's some good news for our genre, yet again. Seems Amazon has a "Best Book" thingy, in which they chose what 'they' (don't know who they are, but anyway) chose what books stood out for the year. In their "Gay & Lesbian" category, Dreamspinner author TJ Klune has had the honor of his book "Bear, Otter and the Kid" be named one of the best. Well done, TJ. It's on my list of books to read. Looks like I'm going to have to move it up the queue.



A lovely book trailer for Salad on the Side author, Karenna Colcroft, though it isn't for Salad, it's still a pretty thing to show off, and it was made by Winterheart Designs. 0eH51WRGMkc I confess, I have no idea how to embed this. Sorry)

IN PERSONAL NEWS

This past week, I signed a contract with Dreamspinner Press for a new short story that will be published in May of 2012, under their Bittersweet line. How excited am I by that? Very. It's a re-print, called Paying the Piper, and while some of my really faithful readers from years past might have read it, I do think it will be new to most of you. I'll keep you posted on this as things progress.

ON THE HOMEFRONT

The most used bit of swag I brought home from GRL. Good call, Devon! The view in the background is one of my favorite local coffee places, though it's been pretty empty lately, as it's under renovations. still, it's cozy and just a few steps from work, so very handy.

Thanks for posting the trailer link, Jaime :)

I read Bear, Otter, and the Kid a few weeks ago and loved it. It's a great story.
