The Lesbian Genre Fiction Bay Area Tour (LGFBAT) had its first event at Swizzle! This monthly open mic event is held at gallery Femina Potens in the Castro. The turnout was standing room only, and our group was preceded by several great readings by local writers. It was a chilly night for the Bay Area, and fellow Bella author Ursula Steck and I were bundled up against the cold.

Followup note: The tour group’s photo was featured on page 11 of the March 08 issue of Curve Magazine. Me and k.d. lang, almost nearly sorta kinda…together. Copyrighted material.
