Rainbow Awards ~ Honorable Mention

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Vetted Further by K’Anne Meinel: “Enjoyable read with good character development. This is a continuation of a 1 st book but written so as to be a stand alone. Great settings made me feel I was on the farm with the characters. The author seems to have done a great job in researching her plot! In point throughout.”

I don’t generally watch sports on television. Not having a TV is not the main reason. It just isn’t my thing. Even when the Seahawks made it to the Superbowl, as my wife raptly watched the game, I had one eye on my computer and the other eye sort of on the game. Most of […]

Why Megan Rapinoe Matters… — Annette Mori

It has taken me a long time to feel comfortable admitting to several things. I don’t believe for one second that the sexual revolution really took hold in the sixties and continued on. It didn’t. Not really. Let me share what I’ve discovered. One, I very much enjoy reading sex scenes in the lesbian books […]

So, you think starting an awards competition is easy?

Lesfic Bard Awards News


Okay, okay, let me catch my breath and wipe the tears from my eyes.  Oh my, I nearly wet myself.

I will admit, for years, I and other authors had GREAT ideas of how an awards competition should work.  Those ideas were suggested to some already established awards sites, but sadly, they were never implemented.  I thought, Well, if they won’t do it, maybe we should?  Since I wasn’t alone in these ideas, I got together with some friends, and after much research, we started the Lesfic Bard Awards.

Easy?  NO!  Time-consuming?  YES!  Worth it to give everyone a level playing field and see independents as well as publishing house authors given the same opportunity to win on their work’s merit?  YES!

As the administrator, I learned a lot about the lesbian literature (Lesfic) community in the last year or two, especially once we started posting about the…

The Harbinger  Synopsis: Ellie Hanray, interior designer, and an out and proud single lesbian is slowly emerging from a period of deep mourning, after the death of her five-year-old son, Alex. He’d been conceived by donor insemination after her maternal instincts and ageing began to set alarm bells ringing. Although the coroner had declared his death to be a tragic accident, Ellie continued to blame herself. She’d taken her eyes off him for a moment while talking to her friends, when he slipped and fell from the slide. Now she sat on a park bench looking at the place where he’d…

Interviews by K’Anne Meinel

This is still relevant and I want to thank them for posting about it. Again, we are scheduled out until June this year…hit me up on Facebook for your favorite authors.

A few weeks back we had a wonderful time interviewing the authors of Dirt Road Books. For those who don’t know, it’s a group of authors who with their combined (about 150 years) experience in writing, editing, and other business pursuits banded together to make their own publishing house. It was wonderful that despite the disparity of time zones, illnesses, personalities, everyone was able to participate. The fans were able to get a good idea of the who, the what, and the why.

Those are the kinds of things I love about the group I formed three years ago, the Lesfic Reading Group. I based it off another group I had started with another author, and even before that on a group headed up by Jaynes Penney where we interviewed authors. I believe the name was even inspired by Jaynes who disbanded her group. I’ve interviewed a lot of…
