The Lambda Finalists Have Been Announced

Each year around this time the finalists for the Lambda Awards are posted on their web site. This is the 22nd year for these awards and I, of course, have my own favorites that are listed as finalists.

I was thrilled to see that two of my favorite books are finalists, and I’m hoping the best for both of these authors I like and respect.

One book is an anthology, written by Cecelia Tan, titled WOMEN OF THE BITE. This is an anthology of lesbian themed vampire stories. The storylines are great, the quality of the writing is great, and everything about the book keeps the reader wanting more.

The other book is titled, TRANSGRESSIONS, by Erastes. It’s a well written m/m historical, set in 1642, England, about two young men struggling to survive in a war-torn atmosphere. I don’t read many historicals, but I’m glad I read this one. It was wonderful and I couldn’t recommend it more. I’ve been in a few anthologies with this author, and I’ve always been happy with what I’ve read.

Boys of the Bite…

I have a short story in a book titled, BOYS OF THE BITE. I’ve posted about it before. But here is a new review link I thought was interesting: http://whippedcream2.blogspot.com/2009/09/boys-of-bite-edited-by-cecelia-tan.html?zx=7d1139b6f24a29a3

My short story in the book is titled, THE DEVIL’S HALF ACRE. I wrote this story about nine years ago. I did it in hard copy while I was still working on a word processor instead of a computer. One thing led to another, and I forgot all about it until this past year when I submitted it to Cecelia Tan for BOYS OF THE BITE. It’s one of the few pieces I where I write about where I live, in Bucks County, PA.
So far, thanks to Cecelia Tan, the entire book is getting excellent reviews.
