Hi Readers and Writers,
Last week Christopher Soden sent me a message indicating that he was starting a series of articles at Examiner.com on queer culture to profile GLBT heroes. I checked it out (nice article on Francis Bacon), and then I checked out Examiner.com and found that they have nobody covering the colorful world of GLBT literature. Well they do now.
I'm beginning an ongoing column at Examiner.com on queer literature, both locally (San Francisco Bay Area) and globally, to profile GLBT books and the people who write, publish, and sell them. So I plan to write book reviews, post interviews with writers and publishers and book sellers, announce author events, cover conventions, and even showcase blogs.
So if you're a gay or lesbian writer looking for another outlet to promo yourself and your work, please contact me. And for readers who want a place to check out what's going on in the world of GLBT Literature, swing by often and see what's new. The link is:
So far I have only posted one article, about the grassroots author response to the Amazon.com "technical glitch" fiasco of a few weeks ago. Later this week I'll be posting a book review of Ed Patterson's wonderful novel, The Academician, and there will be more, much more.
Thanks, Alan Chin
2016 was a Spectacular Year for Queer Lit.
