Lambda Literary — the organization that brings you the Lammys, the Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices and the Lambda Literary Review website — just kicked off its Fall Challenge Grant. What’s the challenge? Lambda Literary has SIX generous donors (Steven Coulter, David Ebershoff, John Faubion, Catherine Ryan Hyde, Noelle Leca, and Kay Percy) who will give us $20 thousand if we can raise that amount from the rest of our supporters. That’s where you and I come in. If you answer this challenge with a $100 donation or more, I’ll send you an autographed copy of this new book as soon as I get my author’s copies; i.e., usually about 2-3 weeks before the scheduled release.
It’s easy: Go to this DONATE PAGE for Lambda Literary, make a gift of at least $100, and write “KG’s Book” in the Gift Memo block.
For those who don’t know, I’m the President of the Board for this organization. I serve because I believe LGBT lives — whether in thriving cultural centers or isolated rural communities — are better when our stories are written, published and read. That’s what you support when you donate to Lambda Literary. Getting an early, autographed copy of a hot lesbian romance is just the cherry on top.
Here’s the synopsis of The Touch of a Woman:
A workplace rampage leaves Ellis Rowanbury grieving her husband of twenty-six years and feeling more adrift than she ever thought possible. Her finances in shambles, she gratefully accepts a junior-level job at a magazine in Sacramento and wills herself to move on.
Summer Winslow has pieces of her own to pick up, pieces that were scattered when her partner began drinking again. Fighting pressure from all directions to patch things up, she finds a welcome break from the drama in Ellis, her mysterious new neighbor. Happy to have a friend on her side, Summer is caught off-guard when her feelings for Ellis take a romantic turn.
With the tragedy fading behind her, Ellis too entertains the possibility of romance. A handsome coworker is eager to fill the void in her heart, and it’s clear he can give her a life much like the one she lost. Only now she’s paralyzed by a stunning discovery—she’s fallen for a woman.
