Fan Fiction Ruminations

Karin Kallmaker, the Queen of Lesbian Fiction, mentioned a panel topic for the Golden Crown Literary Society Annual Conference. The panel idea deals with fan fiction and copyright. It sounds like it could be a very interesting panel if some folks put it together.  The idea got me thinking about fan fiction, in general. I’ve … Continue reading

REVIEW: “Miss Saigon”

REVIEW: “Miss Saigon”

For many years, I have been a fan of Miss Saigon. However, tonight is the first night I’ve had a chance to see it.

It was another long day. Yes, a long day. But it was a fun day, too.  Books and Boots got started with some opening remarks and then we moved into the panels for the day. These were great line ups. The moderators and audience members asked questions of the panelists – and there was some … Continue reading

Introvert in a crowd

I’ve had a fairly long, busy day today. Thus, this is going to be a short entry. The day was spent getting things ready for Books and Boots, which is happening tomorrow.

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like … Continue reading
