TTT: Favorite LGBTQIA+ Movies/TV Shows

We’ve talked about so many lovely things this month! I was going to say that I wish we had time to also talk about my favorite LGBTQIA+ characters, and then I remembered that every day can be a queer day, so I’ll just save that for later. Alas, this is the last queer-specific TTT post […]

Why I Write Queer Characters

When I was twelve, I went to see Tracy Chapman live with my best friend. We were twelve and excited, so we were holding hands to avoid getting lost in the crowd. “You shouldn’t do that,” someone said, indicating our hands, “People will think you’re a lesbian.” MY KING Look, there’s a lot to break […]

#blackoutbestsellerlist Haul

Happy Thursday! It’s one of my favorite days of the week, and it also happens to be the day that I received all the books that I bought for this week’s #blackoutbestsellerlist, so it’s time for a haul post! ICYMI: “Amistad, a division of HarperCollins under the HarperOne group, is the oldest imprint devoted to […]

Character Spotlight: Mason

Character Spotlights were a weekly Wednesday series where I used to talk about characters from the novels I was working on or had already completed, but they kind of fell by the wayside, as these things do sometimes. I’m not actually bringing them back weekly, but I’d like to bring them back semi-regularly because they […]

TTT: Books to Reread

I’m a huge fan of rereading. I don’t do it nearly as often as I’d like to because there are so many other new to me books to read that I get wrapped up in, but if someone told me that I could only reread books for the rest of the year, these would be […]

I Am Portuguese and Proud

Before we dive into this post, I wanted to take a moment to address the absolutely horrendous rhetoric that She Who Shall Not Be Named has been spewing all over the Internet like some kind of swamp troll. It’s very, very simple, and if you don’t agree with this statement, see your way off of […]

TTT: Favorite LGBTQIA+ Books

HAPPY PRIDE! I’m going to keep shouting it every day all day, and today, specifically, we’re going to talk about my favorite LGBTQIA+ books. There are a lot that I haven’t read, and a lot that are written by straight white people, and I am working on reading more #ownvoices rather than just the ones […]

Fanfiction is Worthy

When I was considering posts for pride, I was originally going to scrap this one for later, but, in all honesty, fanfiction is what first opened up the queer community for me, so it feels like the perfect discussion post to kick off celebrations. I’m going to talk a bunch about my history with fanfiction […]

May Wrap-Up

This was another difficult month mentally, so my reading & writing suffered for the first half, and then I definitely felt an uptick in mood about halfway through the month, so that’s probably reflected below, but still. This whole being a person thing is just really hard sometimes. Mini Book Reviews Seven Endless Forests | […]
