Bats, Bluebonnets, and Books!

Lone Star Lesfic It’s that magical time of year again when lesbian fiction authors and readers head to Austin, Texas for the annual Lone Star Lesbian Fiction Festival. This amazing festival is in its seventh year and has grown from a smallish gathering of folks at a local coffee house to this year’s event where 22 authors are scheduled for panels and readings at a conference center in the heart of Austin. The event takes place on Saturday, April 11 and it’s free! Everyone who loves lesfic is welcome. I’ve participated for the last six years and each year is even more fun than the last. This year, I’m excited to be launching the first book in my Lone Star Law series, Lay Down the Law, at the festival. You can all the details for the event here.

Bat In addition to the book fun, while you’re in Austin you can check out the largest colony of bats in the world. These amazing bats take flight from underneath the Ann W. Richards Congress Street bridge every evening at dusk from March through November.

And be sure to take a selfie in one of the many fields of bluebonnets that line the highway in and out of the city. Texas-bluebonnets-field
