Lammie winners announced

Good to see Richard Stevenson honoured for Red, White, Black and Blue – I haven’t got that far reading the Donald Strachey series, but it’s on the tbr pile and I’m sure it’ll be as good as the others.

I’ll also be checking out Dying to Live, by Kim Baldwin & Xenia Alexiou, the winner in the Lesbian Mystery category and Taken by Surprise, by Kenna White, the winner for Lesbian Romance. Both of these seem to have an opposites attract theme, which my readers will know is something of a favourite with me. Smile

I was also glad to see the winner in Gay Romance, Every Time I Think of You, by Jim Provenzano, has a disability theme – or as one of the reviews put it, “daring to show that disability and sexuality aren’t mutually exclusive” – Ray Aguilera, former editor of Bent Voices, on Amazon.

Sad to say, Lesbian Cops didn’t win in the category it was nominated in – but the competition was tough, and it’s still one darn fine anthology with a collection of uniformly superb quality stories (plus, heh, one by me).

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at: www.jlmerrow.com

    I’m stalled at Strachey’s Folly… 🙂

    I haven’t read that one yet, although it looks intriguing and may sneak to the top of the pile now! I’m guilty of not reading them in order, going more by whether the subject matter of the mystery seems particularly interesting at the mo. Which is a terrible admission, when reading a series, but it seems to work better with the Donald Strachey mysteries than with most! 😉
