Honorary Blogger Langley Hyde: Summer Reads + Highfell Grimoires Giveaway

The Blogger Girls

Heather C:  The lovely Langley Hyde is here today at TBG talking her new steampunk book  Highfell Grimoires (its amazing!) and a crazy summer reading incident.  Oh, and there is a giveaway!


Summer Reads

by Langley Hyde

Recently, my book Highfell Grimoires has had the honor of being named in the Publisher’s Weekly Best Summertime Books list (you can find it under the fantasy/sci-fi section) and that got me thinking. What’s a summertime book, exactly? 

Summertime books are supposed to be fluffy. But, asking an average college student what summertime read they’re going to pursue would evoke a variety of answers. One guy might give you a dogged look and say, “Anna Karenina,” while the girl next to him would say, brightly, “I’m going to reread everything by Horror McGoreson.” 

When I think of summertime reading, I think of Costa Rica and lying on my stomach on a sandy beach…

The Hop Against Homophobia And Transphobia 2014 Kicks Off Today With A Giveaway

The Novel Approach

The Novel Approach is proud to once again be participating in the Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia today, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia . The mission of this annual blog tour throughout the LGBT writing community is a fairly simple one: “To spread awareness of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic discrimination by expressing ourselves and getting readers from within our own genres involved. Furthermore, we are here to stand together as an LGBTQ writer community against discrimination of our books.” Through a global outreach of nearly one-hundred-eighty participating authors, publishers and bloggers, HAHAT has become a positive voice in a virtual world.

Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia

Draven St. James

HAHAT 2014

Welcome to my blog and thank you for your support in hopping against Homophobia and Transphobia!  It is so important that we show our love and support to every amazing individual in the phenomenal rainbow that is our community.  🙂  So this May 17th (and every day after), take the time to celebrate our differences!

Love is Love. Those three words are simple, but so powerful. There is a liberty found within those words. There are no boundaries to the emotions that we experience. Rather, there are no expectations of how we should feel and how we shouldn’t. That freedom is one of the elements I most enjoy as a writer of m/m erotic novels. I craft stories that bring to life love and lust without constraints.

I’ve had the great joy of opening the eyes of some of my friends over the past year. Out of support they have read…

HAHAT 2014

I can’t wait to share with you today. This is something special on my heart. Not only do I write in the LGBT genre and have characters who are LGBT, but I also claim to be part of that rainbow community. And what a fantastical community it is. The LGBT et al community is one of the most rewarding and supportive communities I’ve ever been in. And I’m proud to be a member, for the most part.

I’m part of this community because I’m bisexual, which is what I want to talk about today. I know many bisexuals and the…

One for all, and all… well you know the rest

Anna Butler


I can’t say I ever really got into the Three Musketeers except for hey! swords and hats with cool feathers.  But today’s the sort of day where their motto is on my mind a lot.  Today is International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and I’m proud to take part in the blog-hop to support it.

When I was growing up, I had my eyes opened by radical feminists. People like Germaine Greer taught us to look at society and its expectations as (sometimes subtle, often overt, always deeply entrenched) ploys to keep women as second class citizens, as not good enough to be men and have a man’s privileges. They showed us that misogyny was the warp and weft of our society. I thought that here was someone, a small group of someones, who had found a voice for us, who spoke for us with wit and biting, incisive intelligence.
