Its the day before the release of “And We Will Live Happily”! And, as such, I’m instituting a bit of a contest to win one free copy of “And We Will Live Happily”
All you have to do is comment below and tell me — what’s the best present you’ve ever given someone else? How did they react? One comment = One entry. If I get lots of participation, maybe I’ll even add more than one winner?
Ends tomorrow, November 22, at 11:59 pm PST.
Want other ways to enter? Links are below: Comment at my facebook page, follow this wordpress blog, or reblog this to your tumblr. I will get a notification if you do any of these, and you’ll be entered once more into the contest.
Sound like fun? Let’s go!
Happy Birthday to Monica P. — Her 21st birthday is also the official release date for And We Will Live Happily! Order information, title, and more fun to come.
Speaking of the Holidays — do you folks know what you’re doing for your friends and family? Do you have anything super rad planned?
Who is getting excited about the release of And We Will Live Happily? Its my latest short story, about family Christmases and what it means to forge your own family.
Thanks to Anton Pleshakov for the amazing fanart/unofficial cover art. I’m so excited about the way Natalie, Maura, and baby Camilla look.
No release date yet, but look for it some time in December — just in time for a holiday present, amirite?
First Review – And a Glowing One!
Imagine my surprise when I log onto Goodreads for the first time in months and find a book review from April – and its stunning.
Spoilers may be contained in the review, but the last paragraph makes me speechless with happiness. Just when I needed a little confidence boost, too!
I know I’m utterly atrocious at updating this, but I’d like to wave hello to anyone following my blog, and let you know about some exciting things.
First of all — anyone who hasn’t heard yet, guess what? I’m terrible at Latin. I wanted anyone who cared to know — Pro Domine Mori, my favorite story about rough gays, has had an official title change, to Pro DOMINO Mori. Because apparently Latin cases are different from the way I was thinking about them, and you can’t believe everything you read in “The Eagle” fandom. BRILLIANT :) Thanks to Brooke Maake for setting the record straight.
But that holds a back seat to some even better news — I have a new book coming out, this December. Everyone, please get excited for And We Will Live Happily.
Art (C) Anton Pleshakov. Yes, he did fanart for me!
I don’t know how much I can give away yet, but its a short, light Lesbian Holiday story, and will be available in eBook in December, just in time for the Holidays. I’ll be better about updating (I think) and I’ll let you know about release dates, covers, and a lot more.
As always, thanks for being a lovely reader.
Hello, all my (read: two) loyal fans –
The release date for Letters from the Sky is this Sunday, June 10. The ebook will be available HERE on that date.
The paperback will be available at the end of the month, on June 30 HERE
See you on the release date!
As of November, 2011, my manuscript for Letters From the Sky has been accepted by JMS publishing, in their YA section, QueerTeen.
Here is the official synopsis for LFTS:
Jeanne is now in her eighth year of school, and never has the world seemed more strange. Her little town grows greyer and greyer, and every day the radio tells news of a war that is just far enough away that it does not matter.
What does matter to Jeanne are the immediate things: her friends, her family, and a magical guardian, Jericho, who visits her when she is asleep. Jericho’s love for her, however, seems so perfect as to be impossible, and when Jericho begins to disappear for weeks at a time, Jeanne is not sure that she can believe that Jericho is real, any longer.
Fate, however, has other plans, and soon Jeanne is faced with both the reality of her guardian and the reality of the war, as both make their physical marks on her world.
More updates to come, including cover art. Release date is tentatively for June, 2012. Until then, please get excited. You can read an excerpt from Chapter Three here: https://tamerlorika.wordpress.com/2011/07/23/excerpt-letters-from-the-sky-rated-pg/
