06.01.2021 - Spectacular news came in over the weekend! I found out that Remember Me, Synthetica won the Lesfic Bard Award for best science fiction novel. This is the same award I won last year for Burn It Down. I'm so excited to add this to my shelf.
If you haven't seen it yet, check out my newsletter Author Spotlight feature with Tagan Shepard this month.

Event: GCLS: Trends in Fanfic - Panelist
Date & Time: TBD
Activity: Discussion: Fanfic is often a frontrunner to lesfic, with themes, tropes and even phrases moving from fanfic to published novels. We’ll talk about current hot trends in fanfic, from the story level down to specific language. Are there tropes that are taboo or simply won’t work in lesfic? (Yes, we plan to talk about Omegaverse—you don’t need to know what that is, just come prepared to buckle your seatbelts and, if necessary, use your safeword.) We’ll also look at the trend of lesfic authors tagging content of their novels and talk about why and how this works.
