Conquering Venus made Amazon's bestseller list for gay titles today, peaking at number 14. There's been an uptick in sales (both print and ebook) and word-of-mouth has picked up again, so although the book has been out for over a year, it continues to find readers. Thanks to everyone who has...

  This morning I woke up thinking: I love Gay.  Mind you, I haven't always loved Gay, but that was only because I was young and ignorant and didn't know Gay.  I brought my children up to respect diversity and so they are lovers of Gay as well.  It was a bit disconcerting when my oldest went...

     It's a sad state of affairs, my fellow GLBT'ers.  I just spent several emails with GLB publishers and their review of the publishing business at large.  In their emails they decried several things of which I know we all hear.  The economy.  People are buying eBooks, the Kindle will finish us...
