Some books, frankly, are more fun to write than others. This one was a blast. Oh, I just made a rocket joke! Last one, I promise. But it’s true that I had great fun writing T-Minus Two. Lots of fascinating research went into this one, and I’m very excited by the advances of the Mars One project, and Elon Musk’s SpaceX trials.
I took some liberties with the science on this one, but it shouldn’t be considered science fiction. The odds are quite good we’ll get to Mars within the next couple of decades. Someone has to go — why not a pair of intrepid lesbians?
You can order your copy now from Bella Books, paperback or ebook. If you want to read it on your Kindle, it’s quite easy: Buy it from Bella and email it as an attachment to your Kindle account. It shows up just like all your other books, and you have the satisfaction of knowing all of your hard-earned bucks stayed in the lesbian community and helped a new author get off the ground.

I’ll be doing a weekend chat event (May 16-17) on Facebook with the Lesfic Reading Group. You have to be a member of the group to participate, and then you have to join the Event. Bring your questions & comments, and I promise to get to all of them.
Then next weekend (Saturday May 23rd at 7 p.m.), I’ll be appearing at Malaprops in Asheville with Rebecca Swartz, Ann McMan, D. Jackson Leigh & Salem West. If you’re unfamiliar with Malaprops, it’s just one of the coolest bookstores in all the nation. And downtown Asheville is lots of fun. Come get your Bohemian on.
The weekend after that, I’ll be in New York for the 27th Annual Lambda Literary Awards. This year we honor Rita Mae Brown!!!!!! Presenting her Pioneer Award is her friend Gloria Steinem!!!!!!
I’ve just finished my Spring Migration from the hot, dry desert of Southern California to the cool, rainy mountains of North Carolina. We took our sweet time driving (5 days), and it’s a toss-up as to who is happier to be here — Rozzie or me. She’s delighted to be back with her birds, squirrels and carpeted stairs … all the things cats love. I’m delighted to be back at my desk looking out on the lush mountain laurel and rhododendron.
Now that I’m situated in my comfy chair, I’ll work on finishing Touch of a Woman this week.
