Books for Sale!

I will be selling (signed) copies of my book Links: A Collection of Short Stories at the GCV annual Spring Fling event on April 26th.

Event FB page here.

I am also thrilled to be able to announce that I am now a part of the newly formed Collective of Artistic Women and thus will be sharing a table with some other lovely people!

If you are local, please come out and say hi. (Rumor has it that there will be a taco truck on site....)

Promotion!

Who has two thumbs and just got promoted to Bureau Chief (LGBT Division) at the Fresno Community Alliance?

That would be me.

Bureau Chief Me

I think I should get a little hat... but in the meantime I will settle for attending meetings and helping shape the scope and direction of the LGBT themed articles at the paper.

Like all good promotions, this one involves more work and no change in pay. But a TITLE!!!

Woot!

Public Speaking at FogCon

I am honored to be on a panel at the upcoming FogCon!

I will be on the "THe Love That Dares Not Speak Its Name Says 'Hi!' panel which will focus on LGBT characters in genre fiction as well as LGBT authors... and I hope a discussion of the roles and responsibilities of each in terms of fiction as the mirror for society as well as the gentle prod towards progress.

Or something along those lines.

As an out "B" (bisexual) member of the LGBT Community and as an author who was written both straight and non-straight characters, I hope I can bring something to the table. (shameless plug, buy my book)

I'm pretty excited. Besides my Cultural Competency Panel participation with GCV, I haven't done a panel for a while.

(Here is a write up I did for another LGBT themed panel I did a few years back.)

Anyway, if you are going to FogCon, please attend my panel. If you aren't going to FogCon, why not?

And yes, I will probably be pretty twitter happy that weekend, so stay tuned for that!

New Article: Obamacare: Good for the Transgender Community

Here's the teaser...

Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), has supporters and enemies on both sides of the aisle. But one thing is for sure—the policies are more trans-inclusive—and we should all appreciate that.

News! New Writing Gig!

I am excited to announce that I will be joining the contributors of the Pride PAC blog in the coming weeks.

The blog will be relaunching soon and yours truly will have a weekly column to talk about LGBT issues in terms of family, youth, transgender, politics, entertainment.... In short, whatever news and noteworthy thing I wish! 

I am very excited to expand my regular "gigs" in this way... and I will link to my first article once it has gone live.

Thank you to all of you who have been reading me over the years!
