News roundup: Kiki Archer, The Green Carnation Prize and Devon Marshall

5 Mar

BindingDevotionReplacementjpgIn its opening weekend, Kiki Archer‘s Binding Devotion shot to number 1 in the Amazon UK lesbian charts and took the lesbian Smashwords number 1 spot too. An early review from Terry Baker says this:

“Kiki Archer has surpassed herself. Her writing here is honed to perfection. She has joined the ranks of a small group of excellent writers here in the UK and I’m pleased to notice that her books are also being well read in the USA too.

If you want an enjoyable read that you won’t be able to put down, look no further. I’m envious of all who haven’t read this yet. You’ve got a plethora of delights ahead of you. The only drawback now is……..How long do I have to wait for the next Kiki Archer book?”

2013greencarnation-04The Green Carnation prize is back for its fourth year and open for submissions. The prize is a literary prize for UK LGBT published works and was established in July 2010 by author Paul Magrs because of the lack prizes for gay men in the UK. The prize has been since extended to all LGBT writers – a welcome development given that lack of lesbian prizes also – but unfortunately this has not been extended to self-published/indie writers.

Finally, spare a thought for Devon Marshall whose computer gobbled up her manuscript. Readers waiting for The Vampires of Hollywood Book 2 might need to wait a bit longer…. Read more here.
