The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

I love this book and the meaning behind it. The tree gives everything that it has to a boy who spends a majority of his life unappreciative. There is a big lesson to be learned in this book, even though it’s a short and simple read. This book’s meaning goes deeper than what you see on the pages, and that’s why it is so awesome.



In the classroom, this story would be great for teaching students about lessons, morals, and values.

Announcing the 2015 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event! (#LFAE2015)

LFAE 2015


January is one of my favorite months in blogging because it's the annual Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event (#LFAE) here on Babblings! Started in 2012, the LFAE helps promote all types of Lesbian literature and the authors who write and publish it. As an author writing Lesbian Romance, I'm always looking for ways to promote the Lesbian genre. Many times when LGBTQ is mentioned, only Gay Fiction/Romance (M/M) is highlighted, and Lesbian Fiction/Romance (F/F) is pushed to the side. The M/M genre is becoming more mainstream in publishing, specifically being published in digital lines for some big name traditional publishers. With the continual growth in epublishing overall, and some epublishers publishing Gay Fiction/Romance exclusively, promoting and highlighting Lesbian Fiction and their authors is more important than ever.




Again there 's this fallacy that Lesbian Fiction/Romance doesn't sell well. I'll let you in on a little secret. At the then of September I self-published a Lesbian New Adult novella titled, This Time Now. This Time Now was rejected by two epublishers, so I went ahead and self-published it. In October, This Time Now gave me my best sales in almost 2 years, and continues to sell. Based on this sales movement, you bet I'm going to write more Lesbian Fiction. I will never stop writing Lesbian Fiction or Lesbian Romance because since 2010, Lesbian Romance has netted me thousands of dollars in sales.


This year's Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event starts on Sunday, 1/11/15 and ends Saturday, 1/31/15 (3 weeks in total). Here is the list of those participating in this year's event:

John to be Mr October on ‘dull men’ calendar

The fact that there is a Dull Men's Club is pretty fucking great; that they put out a calendar of Dull Men is better; that Mr October runs an Apostrophe Appreciation Society is the very, very best. I read this aloud to my husband, who then chided, "You know, the apostrophe is typographically interesting, in all seriousness." Maybe I"m living with next year's centerfold? Hubba hubba. 


Apostophe's: Your not clever enough to you's them
