public apology aftermath

Well, it turns out that readers and fans do make a difference. After last week's post about missing the deadline for submissions to the Lambda Literary Awards for She's Not the Man I Married, Helen's readers petitioned the board and, lo and behold, we've secured a late nomination.

Hurray. It's nice to see flexibility on this, particularly given the circumstances. I'm always relieved when people weigh things out and make solid decisions. It makes up for all the days when rigidity takes over and you feel like you're dealing with soulless androids.

Thank you to the Lambda Literary Foundation for this.

I can't help thinking she's talking about me with the soul-less rigidity around my author mail policy. But I digress . . .

Congratulations Helen! This is so well-deserved. Thank you Lambda Literary Foundation. We won't make that mistake again.
