My Poor Bookshelves

I’m starting to feel sorry for my books. They’ve been battered in the last few months. I tore them off comfy shelves, reformatted them to make them look all pretty, gave them new ISBNs, placed them nicely back on the lovely shelves of Pronoun, a book distributor, only to have that bookcase come crashing to the ground. Just a few months after moving everything and loving it there (seriously, it was great!), Pronoun announced they are closing their doors in January. So the process had to start all over again. I debated going back to Smashwords for all distribution, but their system is clunky and not user-friendly at all. So,…

GRL 2017

Over the years I’ve discovered I’m not good at taking photos while socializing. I’m too focused on talking to the people and getting to know them to bring out my camera. When I get home to see all the memories I’ve made, my camera is sadly quite empty. But my memories are not. GRL 2017 was no exception. GayRomLit is a conference for authors and readers of Male/Male Romance, aka Gay Romance, and it’s held each October. This year I attended my fourth GRL and my third as a featured author. I’ve driven to two conferences and flown to two since the location varies from year to year. This year…
