80 lbs of books to #LGBT Youth and Women’s Prison Book Project

( this post contains a bonus: female prison pulp fiction covers. You’re welcome. 😀 )

Well, 16 lbs of RISEN, BONES, and CHARM SCHOOL are going to the new Youth Library put together by Outreach Minnesota. Check out the call for book donations from author Rory Coileáin and see if you’ve something to send:http://rorynicoileain.com/2015/09/09/lets-help-make-a-library/

THE HEAVY.

While I was at it, I decided to send 70+ lbs of RISEN, BONES, and SUNDARK tae the Women’s Prison Book Project, who’ve been at it since 1994:

“….These facts mean that women in prison have specific needs for particular kinds of information: material on families, children, women’s self-help, women’s health, and legal aid pertaining to women who fight back against their abusers. Many lesbian, bisexual, and transgender prisoners often have trouble obtaining information that is relevant to their lives. As new prisons are built to warehouse the growing number of incarcerated people in the U.S., the meager resources previously available to prisoners are being cut or limited. WPBP is one place where women/transgender persons in prison can obtain information that is often unavailable from any other source. WPBP works to support prisoners; and through that solidarity works to empower prisoners themselves and build connections through prison walls.”

And so forth! NOW, maybe steampunk/neo-victorian books with mystery and some horror and Victorian lesbian protagonists may not be Very Helpful, but I hope they give respite and entertain. Check out the link on how you can help out. http://www.wpbp.org/book-donations

HOW many here thought this was a post about 50’s lesbian pulp fiction? *raises hand*

This Female Convict cover, 1958, is by my most favorite pulp fiction illustrator and cover artist ever, Robert Maguire.

Also this:

You’ll have to find the others yourself.

Charm School: novelized

I did the cover, and yes, I kinda adore it. Bunny as a ‘real girl’. *hearts*

The Twilight World: where monsters and magical people meet. Teen witch Bunny has a perfectly wicked girlfriend in vampire biker Dean, until a dark faerie comes along. Can Bunny resist Fairer Than’s charms? And when she does, what will Fairer Than do about it? Paranormal romance, fantasy, comedy. LGBT YA.

PRE-ORDER yours today! Will release October 4th as part of the WITCHING HOUR COLLECTION, by the Blazing Indie Collective.

The second in the series is HOT RODDIN’ TO HELL (cover is done, rather prematurely Revealed over at the Charm School site and at my FB group,Elizabeth Watasin’s Club Hecate, but oh well), and the third—-not seen in comic book form—-is BODY CHASE, which is already written (and the cover revealed). These will all come out this winter 2015.

“Nico was a bullet, piercing matter.”

I noticed this is the month(? or was it last month) for LGBT reads? Well, I hope you’ll add this one to that curiosity pile. As it’s sci-fi, I can finally try my hand at portraying several gender aspects and sexualities. 😀 Frankly, I wrote the planet I want to live on. ^v^

#Amwriting the next Darquepunk book, Bloody Nike, plus addressing final notes on Monster Stalker. I don’t think I ever got around to sharing *why* I’m ‘suddenly’ writing queer science fiction—with a noir and paranormal bent—and have hurtled myself through space/time from the paranormal Victorian period I was immersed in.

Back in March, *right* when Wondercon happened, I had a big lightning strike. I have no idea where it came from, but a sci-fi concept I’d been sitting on for years (probably since ’98), suddenly came together. Well, it made sense to me. A planet called Darqueworld with preternatural beings and celestials and leviathans finally *worked*, right then (again, it made sense in my head). And I could have a vampire girl from the ’90’s drop right into it, with her switchblade and teddy bear.

IT BECAME NECESSARY TO WRITE IT. The idea of sitting on the idea more whilst I try to get the third Dark Victorian, the third DV penny dread, and the third Elle Black done was kind of painful (PS, my poor POISON GARDEN has hit a big snag due to my needing a new editor. I just need to find a editor with strong Victorian and UK understanding to tackle it. :-/).

So I’m planning to get all three books done by October. Am writing like a bat outta space/time Hell. ^v^

~~See you on the Darque Side
