Not Mine

I just found out that my publishers missed the deadline to nominate my book She’s Not the Man I Married for a Lambda Literary Award. Considering that it’s probably the only award that has a Transgender category at all, I’m – well, beyond words about how shitty this is.

It’s like the last kick in the ass from 2007 arriving a little late.

But congrats to all my friends & fellow writers on the list: Reid Vanderburgh, Eli Clare, Julia Serano, Mattilda, Virginia Ramey Mollenkott. May the best person win.

  1. Oh wow – so sorry to hear this. I can’t imagine how you felt when hearing this news. I am afraid I would have been ripping a new one out of the publisher.

  2. That really sucks. Sorry to hear, I feel your anger. 2007 is now gone and I hope your 2008 is three folds full of success.
