Two of my books made the finalist list. In the same category! The ways of the Lambda Literary Awards are mysterious indeed. I am...overwhelmed. And amazed that several books I was sure should be finalists weren't.
For Lesbian Cops (Cleis Press) all the credit is due to the wonderful contributors. For my collection A Ride to Remember (Lethe Press), I'm hugely thrilled to have my own writing recognized.
The winners won't be known until the ceremony on June 4th in NYC, but however that comes out, I'm feeling, well, overwhelmed right now. I do think I'll make the trip to the city for the event, especially since I already have readings scheduled there for June 5th (for Kristina Wright's anthology Lustfully Ever After) and June 6th (for my newest anthology Girl Fever: 69 Stories of Sudden Sex for Lesbians and D.L. King's The Harder She Comes: Butch/Femme Erotica.) Both of these readings will be at Bluestockings Books, and you can be sure I'll be posting and prodding closer to the events.
