  1. Alexis, saw the award for Bloom, also and am so pleased for you!! Congratulations on all your work that’s being recognized! My book finally was published in October and ended up with the title I’ll Call It Like I See It: A Lesbian Speaks Out. In the Acknowledgments section I thank you for your help in my project. I hope you’ll have the time to read it!
    Warmest wishes for a wonderful holiday season,

    • Thanks for the congrats, and great news about your book! Yay! I’ll definitely track down a copy (where can I purchase it?) and would love to read the final version.

      Great hearing from you! And happy holidays and happy writing! 🙂
