all my dreams came true i am an award winning author and only skeletor can capture my emotions in gif form

How amazing is this news??

You know, whenever people ask me what motivates me to keep writing, I tell them it’s curiosity, not external validation. But, hey, the occasional bit of external validation is certainly welcome!

When I wrote Ariah, I couldn’t imagine that it would get published, much less win an award! So, many thanks to the Bi Writers Association for this. It means a great deal to me.

Thanks also to my partners, Jon and Sam, and my ex, Hunter, who slogged through many iterations of Ariah. Without them pushing me, this book never would have seen the light of day. I’d also like to thank my editors, Sarah Bangs and Carrie Hemler, for the sharp insights that made this book as good as it could possibly be.

AND MANY, MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO THE OTHER WINNERS AND NOMINEES! Seriously, what an amazing, talented bunch.

I am so excited to be packing off for a couple of days to go to the Bisexual Book Awards! I’ve been honored with the opportunity to do a short reading from Ariah. If you’re going to be in New York on June 3rd, I’d love to see you! RSVP, and come by the Bisexual Book Awards!

Not able to make it? No worries! A new short story is coming–and not only is it set in Aerdh (the fantasy universe Ariah was set in) but it features characters from Ariah! It will be released via my Patreon on June 12. There’s a sneak peek and some info up over here about that.
