Fall is here and the Schedule this week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words



Fall has arrived and the countdown begun for GRL in Chicago, that Gay Rom Lit Conference.  Loads of great authors,  bloggers, readers and publishing companies in one spot for 5 days!  Am I excited?  You betcha, just over the moon. Last year I came home exhausted, loaded down with books and great memories and I am looking forward to more of the same.

Another new change here at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is the author interview section.  We have had so many great interviews that I wanted to make sure they were available all the time.  Want to know the background for the Endangered Fae series from Angel Martinez?  Its there in a 3 part interview.  Or insite into Lou Hoffman’s latest release, Key to Behliseth?  It’s there as well.  I will be going back and adding more as I have time.  Check them out when you have a chance.
