Well, folks, another Lone Star Lesfic Festival is in the books. And it was one for the history books, to be sure. This year there were more writers and readers there than ever before. And, boy, was it fun! It started out Friday night with the Bold Strokes Books Dinner. Lots of the authors were there. It was a raucous affair, believe me. Saturday was the actual festival. I got to do a ten minute reading. I’d never read more than a five minute reading before so I was tres stressed! I read from Speakeasyand of course, read a sex scene. It seemed well received. I blushed, which shouldn’t surprise anyone!
I was also on a panel. It was all about sex in books. I think it was supposed to be how much is too much, but it was basically just about sex! LOL The audience laughed a lot, as well as asked some really good questions. I think they all had a really good time.
OH! Lest I forget – on the first panel of the day, someone mentioned “banging the rainbow drum” which has now become synonymous with writing lesfic, so if one of your favorite authors says she’s banging the rainbow drum, that means good things are coming your way!
It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. This event is always a blast. I highly recommend you try to make it if you can sometime. You won’t be disappointed.
