After Musa Publishing closed its doors I was devastated, not only because I loved working with the publisher, but because they had published my first novel, Cairo in White, and had been the first ones to believe in me as an author.

I knew that I wanted to get the book back out into the world as soon as possible, so I decided to self publish the book instead of scramble to find another publisher.

With the help of wonderful book designer Kelly Shorten,  Cairo in White is now available on Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and CreateSpace, and will be available on and Kindle soon.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the book since it first came out last February, or even before that, in the six years it took me to write it. I could never have gotten through all of those revisions without you!

Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event Blog Post

Dear Readers,

Today, I have a post up on the Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event blog called “The Fictional is Political.” The post, which got me really worked up as I wrote it, talks about how it’s almost impossible to just write and not become a political author when you write LGBT fiction. The post also includes my personal journal as a writer, and a giveaway.

Check the post out here and let me know what you think!
