Ask a hundred writers “how’d you finish that book?” and you’ll get 97 different answers and 3 people who’ll wander off muttering.
You can catch up to me in two places this Women’s Week, both high in laughter and low in pressure. Just drop in and feel free to say hello and collect your hug (if you’re in to that).
I will sign body parts, your book collection, laptop – anything. Though, generally, it’s helpful if the books are ones I’ve written. That KG MacGregor – no sense of humor, ask anyone. #GCLS2014
Thank you for considering joining the support of other lesbians to attend this great event.
Gerri Hill, KG MacGregor, Georgia Beers and Carsen Taite have between them a catalog of nearly 60 books–with at least six more scheduled for publication in the next year.
Truthfully, I’m just going to sit back and let them talk so I can figure out how they both produce such consistently good works and at a steady pace too!
Meeting readers is one of my favorite things. Which is one of the reasons why I love the GCLSCon. It’s a major reader destination and having all those women in one place is a contact high. Sometimes literally, since hugs are almost always part of the fun!
As an employee or board member I was involved in both a small home-grown association and a large one with thousands of members.
Since the Goldies are my favorite lesbian event of the literary year, having 2 titles survive the to finalist status is like a great big cherry on top of what will be a very fun week.
What is this item? That’s a mousepad, and it’s up for silent auction to benefit the GCLS Scholarship Fund. Why is it special? It’s a copy of one I customized for myself to motivate me to meet my deadlines. Maybe it’ll help the winner more than it has me.
I’m looking forward to the GCLS Conference in just two weeks, because at some point, everyone has that moment of speechless enthusiasm for a book that was so good words fail them, and all they can do is glow with passion.
The strongest memory is still the conclusion of Katherine Forrest’s keynote address on Saturday morning.
If you love lesbian lit and want a great vacation – this is it. It’s one of those all-lesbian theme cruises, well, without the sea sickness.
Two of my 2007 works are finalists for Goldies!
I don’t know any fiction writer, published or unpublished, who cannot benefit from the incomparable experience of Katherine Forrest, who has selected and nurtured hundreds of manuscripts, over decades, into the marketplace.
I know that some people mean it pejoratively when they say uber or fanfic, just as some mean it pejoratively when they say romance. I’d like to go on record that if I use those terms I’m only trying to clarify the landscape in question, not create unbreachable boundaries or imply tribal hierarchies.
The Golden Crown Literary Society’s annual conventions are still the best events I attend all year.
This year in Altanta, the third annual convention featured three days of workshops and opportunities to meet and chat with readers.
The mayhem and madness of charades, jeopardy and panel readings was a terrific contrast with the studied and serious presentation of writing techniques. I was honored to pick up my second Goldie for Just Like That.
