Guest Fest: Carole McDonnell Discusses Polyamory in her Upcoming Novel

windfollower2In my upcoming novel, The Constant Tower, a character is suddenly faced with the possibilities of having two husbands. She thinks, “Yes, I can love them both. I am in their clan now. I can marry and love both of them.” Something like that.

Guest Fest: Constance Gillam Discusses the New Orleans Voodoo Chronicles

ConstanceGillamOne of my favorite cities is New Orleans. When I walk the streets of the French Quarter, I feel as though I’m reliving history. Most of the original buildings from the 18th and 19th century still stand in the Quarter along with cobblestone streets.

Black SF 2012 Author Panel was Standing Room Only

Both my husband and I were exhausted, hot, and tired.  What kept me going were the energetic people around me. They were dressed in costumes, laughed loudly, and were there to have a great time.
