Is Black Blade Blues the best LGBTQ book of the year?

My most excellent friend, Keffy Kehrli dropped me an email last night, asking me if I’d seen this link to Brit Mandelo’s column on the Queering of SFF.

How awesome to find out that Brit thinks Black Blade Blues is the best LGBTQ book she read in 2010.

I’m very flattered by this.  It’s an awesome thing when something you create impacts someone else in a positive way.  I love to tell stories, and this type of feedback just reinforces the instinct to write more.

I’m also pleased that she believes Black Blade Blues to provide a positive image and a strong voice for a community I support.

Thanks, Brit and thanks to all the readers out there that have contacted me and told me how much they like the book.
