This week, the wonderful Lou Harper stopped by with an excerpt from her upcoming (August 5th) novel, Dead Man & The Army of Frogs, starring what just might be a version of Lou herself. Today she's back and bringing with her a digital copy of the book for a random drawing. To be entered, just leave your name and email addy in the comments, as always! :)

Whine, Cheese, and The Occasional Amphibian
Time to time a commotion breaks out in the m/m sphere about the portrayal of women within the genre. The way I see it, the real squabble should be about the portrayal of women in fiction in general, and not just books. I’ve been fuming for decades about female characters in movies whose sole role is to advance the plot by the power of their sheer stupidity and inability to follow simple directions (Stay here. Don’t open that door.)

I love writing for Neil Plakcy and all of the other Cleis Press editors. They always ask me to stretch my ideas and move out of my comfort zone. I have been asked to write stories about construction workers, skateboarders, frat boys, beach bums, class differences, and I am proud to say I rose to the occasion, in more ways than one.
