Honorable Mention for Brigade!
Quick note to all my subscribers and followers... I'm so excited to announce that Trans Liberty Riot Brigade has received an honorable mention from the Rainbow Awards! What a way to start November :)
Notes from the judges:
1) I loved the voice of our protagonist and looking at the world through her eyes. The stark and colorful language characterized the entire piece beautifully.
2) Brutal and gritty, the story is very well written. It grabs you from the start and holds you until the end.
Seems Andi has made an impression! Huge thank you to all the volunteer judges and sponsors that help make the Rainbow Awards happen!

Also, a reminder that I will be at Seattle's Read with Pride event, happening THIS weekend at the Seattle Public Library. I'll be in the book fair and appearing on a panel with other lovely authors to discuss non-traditional romance in LGBTQ+ literature.
