Two Bywater books have been shortlisted for Lambda awards. Greetings From Jamaica, by Mari SanGiovanni, is a finalist in the women's fiction category, while Marinne K. Martin's For Now, For Always is a finalist in the romance category. Congratulations to both authors.
I think it is worth noting that Bywater holds an annual fiction contest, and through this process has discovered some amazing new talent. I think that you'll see more Bywater authors and books up for awards in the near future.
Also of note: Cynn Chadwick, an extraordinary talent herself, has joined Bywater Books. Her newest Babies, Bikes, and Broads, will be released in September. It is the third in a trilogy that began with Cat Rising and continued with Girls with Hammers. All three titles can be found at Bywater Books now.
