The Rainbow Book Fair in Greenwich Village: All Male Romance


The Rainbow Book Fair in Greenwich Village is going to be held this March, on the 24th. A lot of publishers and authors have been preparing. I’ve signed and returned tons of bookplates for loveyoudivine.com, and other authors have been posting and working even harder to make this event something special. I’ve donated free books, and so have other authors, as free give-aways.

I asked Tristan to send me something that I could post for readers and other authors. Here’s her reply:

All Male Romance (allmaleromance.com) is “a small ‘community’ of writers with one thing in common: We love gay romantic fiction.” It is a website “dedicated to bringing readers of m/m romantic fiction together with the authors they love!!” —SPONSOR—

Come visit us at: Table A8, and take home free handouts and a CD!

4th ANNUAL NEW YORK RAINBOW BOOK FAIR

Saturday, March 24, 2012 11am–5:30pm

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center 208 West 13th Street NYC

I’m going to be away a good deal of March. I go to South Beach this time each year, where I work most of the time and spend the rest of the time with my brother and my partner, Tony. But we’re driving down because of the dogs and my schedule isn’t written in granite. So I’m trying to work it out so I’ll be back in time to attend the book fair. There is nothing I love more than walking around through book fair in the Village in the early spring (To be honest, I love this a lot more than hot Florida, but when you’re in a relationship you have make compromises :). Everything in the world changes constantly, but some things always make you feel as if you’ve gone home again. And Greenwich Village in the early spring is one of them.

2012 Rainbow Book Fair…

The photo above contains the book plates I have to sign and mail back to someone who will be at the 2012 Rainbow Book Fair in New York this March. These are book plates for my publisher, loveyoudivine.com. For those who don’t know, book plates are now what authors and publishers often use for signed autographs. With digital books, because there are no actual books for authors to sign, readers who love digital books collect signed book plates and keep them in a variety of ways. Some have albums; others stick them right to their e-readers. I know that if Jonathan Franzen sent me a signed book plate, I’d paste it to my chest and show it to everyone and anyone I met.

But I digress. check out the link to the 2012 Rainbow Book Fair. And if you’re going to be in Manhattan that weekend, you might want to stop by. I’m trying to figure out a way to be there myself. I’m supposed to be out of town until the 30Th of March. But if I can make it I will post about it here on the blog beforehand.
