I have a new book coming out in September (date isn't set yet, but I'm expecting early/mid). Hanging by the Moment is a very, very special project for me, on so many levels. One of the main characters is bisexual, just like me. He's Native American (which I'm not, but I don't know that we see enough ethnic diversity in romance)--and he's HIV positive. While there have been some great books either currently out or soon-to-be released casting HIV-positive characters in leading roles, we've still got a long way to go to overcome the stigma associated with being positive.
To celebrate, I'm doing four things (because I'm crazy).
I've signed on for two blog hops in September; one is because the topic is something I don't think we can ignore and even though September is my Bi-pride celebration here, LBGT people, especially our teenagers, are more likely than most other groups to commit suicide.
The other one is because I am an absolute fan of The Romance Reviews and jumped on the chance to participate in a blog hop. I'm hoping to get some new visitors, especially as I'm celebrating/raising awareness about bisexuality--and celebrating the release of Daniel and Pasha.
Three: I'm hosting my own special Bi-Pride Month here in September--if anyone would like to sign up to be a guest blogger, I'd love to have you! You don't have to be bisexual or even have a character who's bisexual (although if you want to promote your books with bi characters.... just sayin' *G*).
And four: I'm launching my own blog tour/book release celebration! More details will be forthcoming as I get things sorted and scheduled. (And no, I won't be blogging every single day!
I mentioned I was crazy, right?
I'll be giving away a copy of a book of the winner's choice for both the suicide prevention/awareness, and TRR blog hops, and I'm putting together an awesome book and swag goodie bag for my blog tour/virtual release party celebration. (Anyone who comments on any of the blogs on the tour--including this one--will have a chance to win).
And in the meantime, we're trying to move. LOL. My husband hasn't found a new job yet, but he's looking--and he's looking out of state. Now you know exactly when he's going to find his dream job right? Right.
