I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve decided to self-publish my first novel, State of Emergency. I’ll have more information in the days and weeks to come, but the goal is for it to be out on August 10.

Here is the blurb:
Sweden, Present Day: Idun Tyr receives a warning from her sister, and army lieutenant, telling her to hide and not come out no matter what she hears. By the time she re-emerges, the world has changed. Her phone has no signal, the internet and televisions aren’t working, and her town is empty of people. Everyone is gone. She sets out to find her missing girlfriend, Mercedes and embarks on a long journey, learning to survive in this new reality. A dystopian lesbian novel about a country torn apart by a vicious disease, following three women on different sides: military, vigilante and prisoner.

I like reading about lesbians

I like reading about lesbians (duh). Sad lesbians. Happy lesbians. Non-lesbian women falling for lesbians. If a book has women loving women in some form, I will most likely like it at least a little bit, probably like it very much. I’ve not been reading lesfic novels for very long, only for around 3 years but the books I’ve read since then have enriched my life more than I can say, cured my loneliness when needed and taught me a lot of things that I wouldn’t have known otherwise.

So here is a list of my 10 top favourite books that has women loving women (click on the name to get to goodreads) :

  1. Backwards to Oregon by Jae. (this was the first lesfic I ever read so it will always have a special place in my heart)
  2. I found my heart in San Franscisco by Susan X. Meagher (this is a series not a stand alone novel, but it’s completely awesome and totally worth reading)
  3. The Legacy by Susan X Meagher
  4. Snow Falls by Gerri Hill
  5. Cool side of the pillow by Gill Mcknight (this is beautiful, go and read it)
  6. Battle scars by Meghan O’brien
  7. Lady Knight by L.J. Baker
  8. Something in the Wine by Jae
  9. Dark horizons by Rae D. Magdon
  10. The Garoul series by Gill Mcknight (another series but so worth reading, who doesn’t like werewolves?)

I can continue forever. There are just so many lovely stories out there. So many books, so little time.

(Also, please appreciate the totally gay photo I took earlier. 😛 C’mon, it’s inside a closet.)
