In March 2009 Homofactus Press will be publishing ‘Visible: A Femmethology,’ a two volume book of writings by femmes (and those who love us) about identity. I am thrilled to be included. This is the first time my writing will be available in a real book and I couldn’t be happier. My piece entitled ‘Reclaiming Femme’ will be in Volume 2.

Homofactus will be offering 28% off all pre-orders of the book in the month of February, but you *must* subscribe to their newsletter to receive this discount. Sign-up for the newsletter by sending an email here: or visiting their website
