E-mail from South Florida writer/editor Neil Plakcy:
Meet me at Borders.
Well, it's not as catchy as "Meet Me in St. Louis," but then, I do a lousy Judy Garland imitation.
Fortunately, I won't be singing-- but I will be talking about the state of gay publishing at Borders Books & Music, 2240 E. Sunrise Boulevard in Ft. Lauderdale (next to the Galleria.) Join me on Thursday June 7 at 6:30 pm.
There's a lot of bad news in the world of gay publishing-- independent bookstores closing, publishers in financial straits-- but at the same time there have never been more opportunities for gay writers.
I've published short stories, novels, essays, and book reviews, and I've edited a great collection of essays by gay men about their relationship with their dogs. I'm currently editing an erotica collection and preparing for the publication this summer of my next Hawaii mystery, MAHU SURFER.
If you're in the neighborhood, stop by to say hello.
