Help Stories from the Polycule Win the Reader’s Choice Award

Polycule-Front-Cover-FINAL3.jpg
My second book, Stories From the Polycule: Real Life in Polyamorous Families, is up for the Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB award! Winning one of the awards would be really great news for the book, as it will bring it to the attention of booksellers and librarians across the country. I really hope it will bring more mainstream attention to real-life, down-to-earth poly stories.
 
The INDIEFAB awards includes a Readers’ Choice category. To win this one, we need to collect comments on the book’s page on the Foreword site. If you want to help, go here:
Then leave a comment (you’ll need to be logged in through Facebook or with a Foreword Reviews account) with the hashtag #INDIEFABFAVE
That’s it! And if you want, you can help out more, you can spread the word, including sharing Thorntree Press’s post about the contest.

APW 2016 Schedule

I am really excited about the awesome lineup for Atlanta Poly Weekend coming up June 3-5. The lineup is chock full of serious things like talking to kids about sex (with the beyond fabulous Marla Renee Stewart) and demystifying asexuality (with the most excellent Melissa Avery-Weir) to fun stuff like Kinky Science (with the incredible Rachel Anne Kieran) and using dance to foster better communication (with the dynamic duo of Joreth Innkeeper and Sterling).

I will be providing the opening keynote address on resilience in poly families on Friday evening at 5pm, hosting a panel with children from poly families on Saturday at 10:30, and presenting on how to use white privilege against itself and become an ally to people of color at 8pm on Saturday. I hope to see you there — it is a great time with fun and interesting people!
