Read it here They managed to miss the point on Outcome, and misrepresent what I said about fantasy in the 70’s but never mind.
February is a busy month for me, readings, publications, A’s birthday…
my story Neutral Ground is just published in 52 :Loves – a story for every week of the year, all about Love, but not necessarily how you’d think. Kindle only at the moment but you never know.
On Thursday 5th at 7:45 in my capacity as publisher, I’m ‘compering’ a reading of Devilskein & Dearlove by Alex Smith at Lewisham Library 199 Lewisham High Street SE13 6LG more details over on the Arachne Press Website.
On February 23rd, my story The Wetland Way will be read at Liars’ League Hong Kong (without me, it’s too far to go!)
LGBT History Month
Thursday 12th I’m at North Kensington Library, 108 Ladbroke Grove, W11 1PZ
with VA Fearon where we will each be reading from our books, and interviewing each other about coming out as writers…
Shouting about Lesbian Literature – coming out as a lesbian writer.
Cherry Potts first collection of lesbian short stories, Mosaic of Air was published over 20 years ago, and she now owns her own independent publishing house, Arachne Press.
V. A. Fearon’s first self-published crime thriller, The Girl with the Treasure Chest came out last year.
What has changed for the Lesbian author in the interim? What has the recent surge of self and indie publishing done for lesbian literature (and what is it anyway)?
Two personal approaches, with readings.
Thursday 26th I’m at Richmond Lending Library, Little Green, Richmond, TW9 1QL at 7pm doing readings and talking about writing and publishing.
Join writer and publisher Cherry Potts for an evening of readings and informal discussion of Lesbian & Gay writing with a whirl through anything from myth, to science fiction. Cherry will read from her own work and others published by her award-winning publishing house, Arachne Press.
I will be on Out in South London on Resonance 104.4 FM this evening sometime between 6.30 and 7.30, if you feel like tuning in. I’ll be talking to Rosie Wilby about LGBT History month and … stuff.
Here’s the link to my conversation with the very friendly Andy & Rev at Cocktail Hour. (Cocktail half-hour in this instance, but who’s counting?) A wide-ranging discussion encompassing spiders, cat fonts, learning to be funny, and setting up Arachne Press, as well as – you know – my actual writing, books and so on; together with me reading a snippet of Arachnë’s Daughters, which is in Mosaic of Air.
I am being interviewed by The Cocktail Hour later today, an online chat show about books by lesbian authors. You can listen to a podcast at some point in the very near future. I’ve lined up a couple of shorter stories to read, and am considering which cocktail to have ready – to drink when I’ve finished.
Joan Taylor-Rowan talks about her decision to self publish.
