Added part 2 of A Chance Encounter by Bobbie Halchishak [alt/über/unfinished] Interview Inquiry
Hello, my name is Danielle Riendeau. I'm a writer for (part of MTV's LOGO Network). I'm writing a feature on fan culture, and I was wondering if I might be able to speak with a member of your community about
the art and practice of fan fiction and what it's like to be part of a community of fan artists.

I'm specifically interested in fan artists who write/draw/make videos about the Xena/Gabrielle relationship – would it be possible for you to point me in the direction of a prominent artist in your community?

Thank you very much, and I look forward to speaking with you.

Well, BC #20 is now open for voting...not that I expect any votes to drop into the contest mailbox anytime real soon. There are eighty-one entries...yes, you read that right...eighty-one story entries for you to read before you pick your favorite and cast your ONE AND ONLY VOTE. You only get to pick ONE favorite.

So read, and read and read, and read some more and then pick your favorite and click on the link and vote.

I would like to thank the BARDS who took the challenge and entered stories. Y'all rock! One BARD wrote twenty for each picture. Another wrote eight entries. Is that awesome or what? This has turned out to be our most popular challenge ever.

I would also like to thank Cheyne, D and Pinky & the Brain for giving us four wonderful non-competing entries, In three of those stories, we get to catch a glimpse of some favorite characters again. We provided links to the originals, so check them out. You can feed those BARDS immediately and I hope you do.

Many Thanks to the Munchkins...Ruth, Monxa and PT for pulling this together. Of course, big thanks to da Boss, Steph...for allowing these challenges to continue,

BIG, BIG THANKS to you readers who are now going to read those stories and when the voting is over, are going to FEED THE BARDS. They do this for you, please let them know you appreciate their efforts.

The PUNZle answers and Winner will be announced in a day or so. Stay tuned on that one. Evil J and I thought we had everyone outfoxed. One person proved us very wrong.

Okay y'all go and enjoy.

Hey all,

I'm just announcing a new group in Facebook that I've started. Lesbian Speculative Fiction Group Global

I hope to increase the interest and knowledge of our authors that write the Sci-fi and Fantasy books that we enjoy. Come on....don't tell me you haven't picked up a Jane Fletcher book and said....WOW! Cate Culpepper? Gun Brooke? You know you read em...make sure you take a moment to share the knowledge you have.

The group is mostly about support so we will be listing publishers that sell/produce/advertise/and darn well push out Speculative Fiction around the globe.

The group will also discuss topics about these authors and events that happen annually (i.e. Gaylaxicon, GCLS Goldies).

Take a look if you are a Facebook junkie. I started the group based on my yahoo forum Lesbian Specfic anyway. We have over 200 members there and I have loved the conversations that ensue.

Hope to see you soon,

Just in time for the Holidays! Bedazzled Ink Publishing Company has just published L-J Baker's whimsical fantasy, Adijan and Her Genie. L-J's Broken Wings won the Alice B. Readers' Appreciation Award Lavender Certificate for Debut Novels and was short-listed for the 2007 Gaylactic Spectrum Award. Her Lady Knight novel was short-listed for the 2008 Gaylactic Spectrum Award. Enjoy!
Claudia Wilde

Adijan, a poor messenger girl in an Arabian Nights fantasy world, wishes she could build a world-spanning business empire. Shalimar, her wife, wishes Adijan would spend more time at home. Their landlord wishes Adijan would pay the rent. Adijan?s brother-in-law wishes she would get trampled by a herd of camels so that he could marry his sister Shalimar to someone affluent and influential. And of all the wishes in the world, Adijan wishes the genie she?s saddled with would grant her wishes instead of treating her with disdain. Be careful what you wish for in a world of genies, sorcerers, and flying carpets.
Order here: and soon to listed at Star-Crossed.

-from Blue Feather Books

Blue Feather Books is pleased to announce the release of Greek Shadows, the third in the popular Shadows series by KC West and Vi Welsh.

What could be more exciting for archeologists Kim Blair and PJ Curtis than jetting off to a picturesque Greek island to work with one of Kim's former students on a newly-discovered underground labyrinth?

How about slipping through a portal into the past and taking an extended journey back in time to meet some very famous women - women who help Kim and PJ face and defeat their weaknesses and discover their true Amazon destinies?

If you've read the first two books of the Shadow series, you'll be eager to accompany Kim and PJ on their latest adventure where ancient treasures and timeless warriors have profound effects on Kim and PJ's present-day lives. If you're meeting Kim and PJ for the first time, buckle up and hang on for a fast-paced, unpredictable ride to the far side of the world and beyond.

What do Kim and PJ find in the labyrinth? What do they discover about the Amazons deep within their souls? Can they shine a light deep into the ageless Greek Shadows and accept the truths illuminated there?

Don't delay--order your copy now!

Coming next, for a Christmas release: the all new revised and re-edited Journeys, by Goldie winner Anne Azel!

Also, check out our link to a brand new feature: video trailers! Right now we have three up and running, and we'll be adding more soon! _
