Riverdale Ave Books Author Call For Submissions
I’m sharing this because I love everything Riverdale Ave Books publishes, and I wish I had time to submit a story myself. I’m swamped right now and I don’t have time, but if I did this is definitely something I would love because it’s a challenge. It’s out of my genre but it’s something I love reading for personal pleasure.
At one time there were many calls for submissions like this, however, I don’t see them very often anymore. So if I were a newer writer and just starting out I would jump at a chance to get into a book like this.
So here are the details. It’s pretty simple to follow. Copied directly from my inbox…

This is a good article that explains what it’s like for gay men when they lose a spouse or a life partner. I’ve seen it happen with gay couples I know and it’s very hard for the survivor. In fact, in many cases, especially with older gay couples, the surviving partner often passes away within a year’s time. Many just can’t get over the loss and the grief is too hard to overcome.
I’m also a very big fan of Norman Buckley’s Work.
One gay man’s tribute to his first partner has touched many after appearing online. Norman Buckley, 63, is a successful TV producer and director, best known for directing Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl. He’s the younger brother of the performer, Betty Buckley.
