Casey’s Decision by Olivia Starke (2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event #LFAE2015)...

Jan 20, 2015 by

  I want to thank KT for letting me part of her awesome event again this year. A brief introduction of myself, I’m a contemporary and paranormal erotic romance author. I write both straight and LGBT romance. I’ve dabbled in M/M/F trysts, but the real thrill for me is lesbian and fluid pairings with women sharing passion, love, and all the twists and complications that follow. For some of us love and attraction is indeed gender blind, and I hope my writing reflects this. Here’s the second story I’ve written sharing Casey and Madeline’s journey, happy reading. J   Everything was perfect, absolutely perfect between them so why did she have to ruin everything? Casey stared out the window of her home. Spring had broken winter’s cycle of snow and frigid temperatures. Daffodils poked...

Publishing LGBTQ Fiction by Less Than Three Publishing *GIVEAWAY* (2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event #LFAE2015)...

Jan 19, 2015 by

  Hello, faithful readers. Today I am here to chat a bit about LT3. We are a publisher of LGBTQ romance, especially in the fantasy and sci-fi sub-genres. Though we have plenty of m/m, like most publishers in this genre, we are putting the majority of our effort toward the rest of the spectrum. There are days this can be extremely disheartening. No matter how good a story, the contemporary m/m stories always get more play, more attention. More often than not it is an uphill battle to bring attention to all the other wonderful stories we sell. But there are also days where things are instead heartening, where we can smile and feel encouraged and know that while it’s slow, change is coming. One of the most motivating elements of our business is...

Fantasy or Reality? by Michaela Rhua (2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event #LFAE2015)...

Jan 18, 2015 by

  Have you ever asked yourself that question – WHY? Well I have recently. Let me explain. It was a cold winters evening and by the fire sat a little old lady with her trusty net book conversing with the world outside. Okay, okay enough of the story telling and get to the point I hear you say. As an author you tend to join different groups on various social media platforms to chat to like-minded people – virtually speaking. One such group were having a conversation about not wanting to read books or not liking books written by people who are not living in their lifestyle. The chat went on and on and some people agreed whereas others disagreed. I tend to hover at the edges only commenting to seek clarification on what...

How to Write a Romance Novel by Karelia Stetz-Waters (2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event #LFAE2015)...

Jan 17, 2015 by

  I was twenty-two, standing at the bar, three months away from leaving the East Coast forever. I had no reason to stay. Then I saw her: a compact woman with a Marine Corps haircut and eyes like the brown center of a black eyed Susan which is another way of saying she looked like the sun. She smiled at me. I lied and said I was twenty-three because that sounded very old.   She was thirty-two. She was thirty-two. I was twenty-two.   For years, I wanted to write our story. My wife: the tough African-American Marine from a big family in Baltimore. Me: the naïve, white girl from rural Oregon. What a story! Except that it wasn’t…and, no, I’m not leading up to a tale of deception and divorce. We moved in....

Female Soldiers During the Civil War by Paisley Smith *GIVEAWAY* (2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event #LFAE2015)...

Jan 17, 2015 by

  The Civil War might bring to mind Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind or John Jakes’ North and South, leaving one with the impression no LGBT people existed during the turbulent period of American history which dominated the mid-nineteenth century. But in fact, a number of women dressed as men to fight in the war. It is estimated between 400 and 750 women served their respective countries, sharing the same motivations as their male compatriots. Jennie Hodgers fought with the 95th Illinois Infantry in over forty engagements under the name Albert Cashier. After the war, Cashier continued to live as a man, but was discovered to be a woman after an illness, committed to an insane asylum and forced to wear dresses. Frances Clayton followed her husband into war and served with the...

What to Write? by Clifford Henderson *GIVEAWAY* (2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event #LFAE2015)...

Jan 16, 2015 by

  People are always telling me what I should write. I’ll be sitting in a restaurant with a friend, the waitress will get my order mixed up with another table’s order, and when I look to see who it is she’s mixed us up with, I see my old college developmental psychology professor that I haven’t seen in years, but always wished I’d be able to thank one day for helping me figure out my family. When I mention the happy coincidence to my friend, she says: “You should write that!” Because I’m a polite person, I think instead of say, Duh! I write fiction. Which is not to say a similar event won’t show up in a novel or short story some day, fictionalized of course, but honestly, if I wrote everything people...
