  (Photo credit: Owestry Town Museum) An amazing cache of WWII love letters has been found, between a soldier named Gilbert Bradley, and his sweetheart, Gordon Bowsher.

how crying over stained glass became the best part of my character

This is the Mucha window in St Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle — a huge cathedral right in the middle of this amazing & stunning castle in Prague. I had the very good fortune to visit it while I was writing Daniel & Erik’s Super Fab Ultimate Wedding Checklist, and this particular window is the […]

What can I say that hasn’t already been said?

I’ve been following the news, hanging on every word, every story about the Orlando massacre. I’ve felt helpless, I’ve felt terrified, I’ve felt angry. But I’ve felt such love, as well, such solidarity with other LBGTQ communities around the world, and that gives me such hope. I’ve written to my State Representatives and Congresspeople, telling […]

My book comes out on June 23rd!

Did I mention I’ve got a book coming out in June? June 23rd, to be exact. As in, *this* June 23rd. That means I’m a busy little bee behind the scenes here — interviews to respond to, blog tour posts to write. I spent some time yesterday playing on Tumblr, or rather, having my characters […]

Right Here Waiting is on SIX Goodreads Best-of-2015 lists!

Goodreads and authors have a complicated relationship – I’m firmly of the belief that Goodreads is for readers to recommend books to other readers, not for authors to go in there and start going crazy doing promotional work and dominate the conversations. I, as a Goodreads Author, ran a giveaway when Right Here Waiting was […]

Right Here Waiting is back on TWO of Amazon Best Sellers lists!

Currently ranking as#180,945 on the Literature & Fiction>Genre Fiction list, and #20, 376 in the Gay & Lesbian fiction best seller list!!! Now, that might seem ludicrous to be happy that one’s book is #20,376 on any list, but when one considers how many possible entries on that list (over 2 million!), 20,376 seems quite […]

A 5-star Book Review — Small Wonders by Courtney Lux

Whimsical, and brutal, bitter and kind, jaded and earnest – Trip Morgan is a incredibly nuanced, multi-faceted character that claims your heart even as you want to shout at him in frustration. He doesn’t pull any punches. From the first moment he tells of his unconventional birth, you realize he’s got more going on inside […]

A new 4.5 star review for Right Here Waiting!!!

“…a perfectly paced character driven novel of true love and hope set in the time of war.” I had no idea the folks over at Joyfully Jay had chosen my book to read during their Reading Challenge Month – and in the “push your genre boundaries” challenge week, to boot! I’m always happy to hear […]
