Welcome to my Team Taste the Rainbow Hop post!
Draven St. James organized this hop to celebrate one year as a published author. Thanks and congrats Draven!
This hop is all about celebrating the lovefest that is the LGBTQ reading/writing community. It feels like I’ve been looking for this all my life (and no, I won’t be taking numbers here ;)).
Back in the 90s—when all submissions were on paper, and a rejection where the editor/agent didn’t half-destroy your manuscript before cramming it into the SASE was a big deal—I wrote queer fiction. My protags were usually bisexual women, but they had friends and family across the rainbow. With every “the writing is great but I can’t sell this” I felt a little more discouraged.
Fast-forward to 2012. With the encouragement of a lovely friend, I submitted to Dreamspinner. That first sub didn’t fit the anthology call but by February of 2013 DsP had contracted my first novella, and in one month they’ll release my first full-length novel!
Okay, now it’s time for the good part. My hop prize is any of my Dreamspinner stories that are released. Your choice! All you have to do is tell me the last queer book you read and why you chose it. Easy-peasy.
Don’t forget to visit all the other stops and spread the love!
