The Wonderful Lesfic/WLW Community…

First, let me apologize for my inconsistent Friday Blogs…For those of you who have paid attention and follow my blogs, you know that since retirement I have been very hit and miss. I could chalk it up to laziness, but that wouldn’t tell the whole story. The truth is, I have no good excuse other than distractions away from writing the blog and other more emotional reasons that are hard for me to unravel, so I can’t expect y’all to untie the knots for me!

Honestly, I had planned to write a blog last week after learning the tragic news of my Facebook friend Shay Burton’s untimely passing. But, I just couldn’t because it was too raw for me. I lament the fact that I never got to meet her in person. We had plenty of behind the scenes conversations, and I felt like I got to know her enough to call her a friend. I hope wherever she is right now she feels the same.

Before the news hit social media, another Facebook friend let me know because she knew that Shay and I had communicated quite a bit, and she wanted to prepare me for the news. I cannot say how much I appreciated that kind gesture. The wonderful lesfic/WLW community started right away working on a way to let Shay’s dream come to fruition. See, Shay had written a couple of stories and shared them with a few honored friends (I was one of those friends). There was great potential in her stories, and all she needed was a good editor to help her clean them up. Finances were a big consideration.

We may never know exactly where she would want the royalties to go, unless somehow there is a will one of us has access to, but that did not stop the community from pulling together to make her dream become a reality. I’ve often talked about the best part of having published works out there is that I’ve left a piece of myself for others to read long after I’m gone. Many have offered to help and took charge.

The other great example of the lesfic/WLW community coming together is the auction for KD Williamson. Here is a link to that for those who don’t know about it and want to get in on the action:

So many great authors donated signed books and other goodies to auction off. I have two books up for grabs that hopefully will generate funds for KD.

These two wonderful examples cause my heart to burst with emotion. It’s nice to focus on the positive and forget how there are times when the community hasn’t been as nice to one another (which is rare). Not that bad behavior should be ignored, but perhaps, focusing on the good will encourage more good.

I debated whether to add my customary closing to the end of this blog, because I did not want my message watered down by shameless promotion. In the end, since this is my only real attempt at marketing, I shouldn’t squander those opportunities. So, I hope you will forgive the standard, if you want to check out any of my books, click the links below!

One person at a time…maybe that’s what it takes to change the world.
