GRL Day 1

Bear and I arrived yesterday evening, settled in, and found a nearby restaurant to eat, Roger Brown's Restaurant and Sports Bar. He had a cheeseburger too large to finish, and French fries. I had vegetarian tacos. Tasty, but spicy.

This morning we took a stroll through the historic district of Portsmouth, VA.

Such gorgeous architecture, and some of the homeowners even chatted with us. I've never seen so many friendly folks, when even the guy in the pickup truck waiting for me to cross the road said "Good morning."

I've run into some other GRL folks here, and can't wait to see more.

GRL Bound!

Today I'm packing up to head to Portsmouth, VA and GayRomLit! Yes, I'm going up early, hoping to catch up with friends I only get to see once per year, and to meet new ones. It's hard to describe GRL to someone who hasn't experienced it for themselves, but mostly it's a meeting of what we call "the tribe," a group of like-minded people connected by their love of LGBT romance.

I've met some folks there who are now great friends I speak to online frequently, but not merely in the capacity of author. There I'm just another book lover, who alternates between reading passages from her upcoming novel, to fangirling all over favorite authors and begging to know when the next installment of their series will release.

I've danced, dressed in costumes, discussed scenes over dinner, and once even took a tour of the surrounding area while an author pointed out where her character lived, showed me the diner where he met his love interest, the late night hardware store that figures into the story... Well, I'm sure you get the idea.

I don't have a new release to show off this time, but Suspicion (Diversion 7), is close enough to publishing that I can talk it up.

But mostly, I'll hug, smile till my face hurts, and feel like I've just come home.

MFM Menage Sale!

Saying Yes, a mfm menage by my alter-ego Edie Sommers, is now on sale here at Amazon!

My next-door neighbors, hotter than hell Jack and quietly luscious Andy, have a parade of women coming by, but fire up the grill for hot dogs with me. I'd take one of them in a heartbeat, if they'd ever ask. Or both—a girl can dream. 

What did I ever do to wind up in the friend zone? 

Now the guys want to change that, want me to date both of them and decide which one I want to keep. Easy enough, right? 

There’s a slight problem. They’re twins, and choosing one might mean losing the other as a friend. 

And I love them both.
