Number 20!

A little over ten years ago, I decided to write a book. Not like the not really a mystery mystery I wrote to impress a girl in the seventh grade, but a real book that would sit on a shelf in a bookstore, or better yet, grace the bookshelves of hordes of adoring fans 🙂

The desire to write a novel had been brewing since a young age when I thought the authors of the books I loved were superheroes (spoiler alert: I still do), but it wasn’t until I was in my forties that I seriously pursued my passion and wrote Truelesbianlove.com. Fast forward ten years, and I now have 20 novels to my name with several more on the way. It’s been an incredible journey, and I’ve had the good fortune to become friends with many other authors and fellow readers along the way, many of whom I’m getting to see at the GCLS Convention in Vegas right now!

Love's Verdict 300 DPI
To celebrate the release of my 20th, Love’s Verdict, I’m giving away two ebooks and one signed paperback (will ship anywhere in the world). To be entered to win, chime in with a comment about something you’re passionate about – books, food, writing, travel – it can be anything that gives you joy. I’ll draw three winners on Sunday, July 8th.

  1. … one of the horde of adoring fans! Would love to win an ebook – I am older than you are, if you were 40-ish 10-ish years ago – and am sorting out and donating my shelves and shelves of books!
    Right now I am into writing my own book – a family history/memoir/genealogy – hmmm if I decide what it is maybe I will make more progress 🙂

  2. Congrats on this new milestone Carsen! I love a good story whether it’s in a book or a movie or tv series; reading feeds that passion more than tv or movies lately.

  3. I’m passionate about working with the LGBT community as we age and helping make sure that discrimination does not play a part in the care that the
    senior community needs.

  5. Congratulations on the 20 books. That must be an awesome feeling.
    It is wonderful to be able to do things we enjoy. Like writing, love it. Reading too. I could never give up reading, and if there is a nice cup of tea on the table nearby, then everything is near perfect. AT least for a short while.

  6. I’m glad you’ve decided to 20up that 7th-grade crush . Took you long enough.
    Wish I was there in the big V <—do not read into that.
    Good luck on book 21 through 40. Use that inner challenge of going back to your high school reunion to be able to say…oh me? I've written around 40 books. No biggie. Then lift your cell phone and say "Yes, Allisa. Please have the Limo back to pick me up around 11pm, thank you."

  7. I am very passionate about fixing things. Computers, electronics, furniture, just about anything, if it is broken, I will try to fix it. Ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed taking things apart to see how they work. I think that naturally developed into my love of fixing.

    Oh, I also love to read!
