It seems there is another small event happening over in the UK. Manifold Press is a UK-based publishing business, which began as a collaboration between three British writers of male-male fiction with something like a century of experience between them. Morgan Cheshire, Fiona Pickles and Chris Quinton have since been joined by Australian-English hybrid Julie Bozza. On Saturday May 9 2016 they are organizing a small get together with some authors and their fans. There will be two guest speakers and several other interesting things to be sure. Feel free to go an visit them if you feel like it. More information can be found here. Some of the topics discussed will be the following: Clichés and how to avoid them Sex scenes, more or less Female authors and male pseudonyms The event will take place at the Jam Factory Restaurant and Arts Centre in Oxford. Please be advised that the venue is discreet and not private. And of course I would love to know what you think afte the event….
I wish everyone a very happy Valentine’s Day. If you are with someone make sure they know you love them. If you are still single, love yourself and rest assured there is someone out there for you.
Just 2 days ago I received an invitation to Euro Pride Con, a meeting for LGBT Fiction enthousiasts. It will be held in Munich (Germany) on July 11 & 12 2015 and is a unique chance to meet up with other LGBT Fiction enthousiasts and authors. You can find out more on the website for the Con right here. Prices start from 160 euros and if you register before the end of this month they will pay the Paypal fees for you. I am not sure I will be there yet, but I am sure it will be a fantastic event and one of a few in Europe. Later on in the year, September 11 – 13 2015 the yearly UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet will take place. However, due to overwhelming succes they are completely sold out and no longer take registrations. You can however contact them to check if places have opened up if you want to go. Also subscribe to the newsletter so you will always be in the loop for the latest news. Visit the official site for the event here. So thats two wonderful events to meet all the other fans of our favorite books, meet…
