This post catches us up with August! By Wednesday I will be all caught up again.
Indie Lit Awards are now accepting nominations for the LGBTQ category! (Oh, and the categories, too.) Go nominate your favourite 2011 LGBTQ books! This year, you don’t need to be a book blogger to nominate! I’ll be one of the judges, so I’d really appreciate you nominating (at least) one!
