It's going to tough to muster much enthusiasm this week. Doing my best to continue as usual, but it's not an easy thing. This doesn't mean I'm going to curl into a ball for the next four years and hope we come through it. So much no. Those of us who write queer stories need to keep writing them, now more than ever. As I said on my front page:
We need to tell stories, whether these are contemporary or through the tools spec fic gives us. We need self-expression. We need heroes. As Bernard Hayman writes, "fictional worlds have the potential to act as irreplaceable portals through which we can grapple with not only our tumultuous past and difficult present, but also the promise of a more hopeful future."
So. Onward. We had the release of Boots this week on the Pride Publishing site. You can snag it now or pre-order at Amazon. All the rest of the linkies and distribution releases arrive on 12/6.
In other news this week - the first volume of Brimstone Journals will be released at Mischief Corner Books on 12/24. That's a holiday present for you guys and will contain a little holiday ficlet that didn't appear on the MCB website in the weekly Brimstone Journals.
Angel writes (mostly) Science Fiction and Fantasy centered around queer heroes. Currently living part time in the hectic sprawl of northern Delaware and full time inside her head, she has one husband, one son, two cats, a love of all things beautiful and a terrible addiction to the consumption of both knowledge and chocolate.
