Book Announcement from KG MacGregor —
I am happy to announce the return of Malicious Pursuit, available now from Bella Books. This was my first stab at writing a thriller, and I learned a great deal about pacing, twists and loose ends. Thanks to all of you who wrote me about the early version. I’m entertaining an idea for a sequel, so here’s hoping MP finds an expanded audience among the Bella faithful and those new to lesbian fiction.
For those who purchased a previous edition, thank you, and please put your wallets away. You won’t find any substantive changes in this one, just a correction here and there. The synopsis and first two chapters are available at www.kgmacgregor.com.

Message from OZ:
As promised...while the writers are (hopefully) toiling away at the Criss-Crossover Bard Challenge, we are giving you patient readers a chance to win some Academy goodies too.
Evil J & I present to you the "Untitled Punzle."
You can applaud now.
Oh, why is it untitled? You'll have to read the instructions. .snicker.
Here's the direct link:
Evil J did a terrific job putting the graphic together & PT built the page & gave you a link so you could download a bigger version of the image. The deadline for entries is July 1st.
Also...don't forget to spread the word of the challenge to all your favorite fanfic writers...no matter what fandom they write. Drop them an email & let them know about it. We would love to have a big turnout & bard challenge first-timers seem to do awfully well.
Now, I'm off to find a good hiding place for me & J...I think we are gonna need it.

Today, I received some very upsetting news. One of our munchkins - the one who is the glue who holds us together - found out she was sick. Very sick. I feel like I've been punched in the stomach and at the same time am totally disbelieving.
Michelle de la Rosa is the one who subs for me when I need time off, who keeps us on our toes and doesn't let anything get passed by. She's a great graphic artist and a good friend.
Please, everyone say prayers or light candles or think good thoughts - do whatever it is that you do to send positive energy her way. For now, that's what we can do. We might ask more from you guys soon but right now, just please send healing vibes her way.

Need some help here. I think most folks know Renee has done a film called Diamonds and Guns - she showed a bit of it at the convention the other day. As a bit of research, could everyone who would like to see this released please go to IMDB.com - search on Renee's name, and then click on "Diamonds and Guns" - it would be very helpful.

I have to make this announcement and I don't want the Boss to see it. Y'see, I am announcing the Summer Bard Challenge. Yeah, I know...nothing new there right? Well, this time I kinda stepped out of the box. The Royal Academy...archive to a gazillion X&G fanfics is having...
.looking around again nervously.
a Multi-fandom Bard Challenge.
Yep...Bard Challenge #17 is the Criss-Crossover Challenge. It involves characters from a variety of fandoms. I'm sure, if all you bards out there check our list, you can find some you would just love to play with and I know our loyal (and rabid) readers are rooting for you.
The premise and Roools are posted here:
But in a nutshell...the premise involves writing a story using some of the single characters or pairings of characters from other fandoms and putting them in a story to interact with X & G. Please read Roool #1 carefully...it explains all.
Okay...go to it...deadline is July 1st. Oh and one more thing...for you non-writers...we will be having a Punzle Contest as well. Look for it around the middle of the month. We are evil-ing it up. Buwhahahaha
Whoops! I gotta go...I hear the Boss coming. Good Luck y'all.
