A Holler out for help

Hey, everyone. I know it's been a long time since I've written anything here and I'm not going to promise that will change anytime soon. I have LOADS on my plate right now.

I'm still waiting for Welcome Home to be released. My hope is that it will be out and available by the end of October. I will definitely update everyone on that as soon as I know anything.

I'm working diligently on self-editing my second book, Out of the Past, to get it ready for beta readers. I have one lined up, but I need two or three more sets of eyes to look it over. If any of you are a beta reader, or if you are willing to read this book with a VERY critical set of eyes, looking for grammatical errors, sentence structure problems, punctuation errors, holes in plot, weak story line, etc, etc, etc, and aren't afraid of hurting my feelings, PLEASE email me privately (imtogfer AT gmail DOT com).

Next month is NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month. The gauntlet is thrown down to write a minimum 50,000 word novel in 30 days. I have my novel outline and am making notes for it everytime something about it pops into my head. I won last year with Out of the Past and I hope to win again this year. Right in the middle of that, I'll be flying (yes, I'LL be flying - yuck) back to Texas to visit friends and family. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone.

Now, for the REAL reason behind this post.

A new writers' guild - Lesfic Writers' Guild - is being formed by a group of writers, readers, publishers and promoters of lesbian fiction. My job is to compile a list of stores - both GLBT stores and independent bookstores that carry GLBT literature - from around the country for the group. If you know of a store in your area, or even somewhere out of the area, I would highly appreciate it if you would send me the name of the store and any other information you might have about it. You can send that info to the email address I set up specifically for this endeavor (bookstoresforus AT gmail DOT com). Please put "store info" in the subject line. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Well, it's off to slave for the corporate world another day. Y'all have a great week!
