02:25 pm: Outstanding!
Hey! I am thrilled that I'm receiving the Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Prize from the Lambda Literary Foundation this year.

The official announcement will be in late April, I think, but here is more information about the award.

I receive the prize at the Lambda Literary Award Ceremony in NYC on May 26. This is kind of like the Oscars for lgbt writers, so I'm very excited and I need an outfit! Lea DeLaria will be hosting, and many other writers will be honored, including Alex Sanchez, also as Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist; Val McDermid; and Edward Albee. (!)

It's so amazing, isn't it? I would SO love to go out with a big NYC group, but not sure about timing. I'm going to be in taking the train in on the day of the ceremony with my friend Sally Bellerose, and leaving the next day. BUT! I need an outfit, so might try to figure out if I can make it in to Re/Dress and all before the ceremony, which would be a great time to have a celebration dinner!!

I know that the ceremony and the after party are expensive, but, if they weren't prohibitive, I'd so love to see a bunch of fat folks there strutting their stuff.
