Leaning Into the Fall won 1st place and A Kind of Honesty won 2nd place in the Bisexual Erotic Contemporary Romance category in the 2017 Rainbow Awards! I’m so proud and honored. A Way with Words, my Kindle Worlds short story, was also a Finalist in two categories, Gay Contemporary Romance and Best Gay book. So thrilling!
The Rainbow Awards are very special to me for a couple of reasons. Before I started writing MM romance, I would look on Elisa Rolle’s blog for recommendations. There weren’t as many MM books available 7 or so years ago and I appreciated her insight. When I discovered that she also ran the Rainbow Awards, I was thrilled to find a slew of new-to-me authors who put out quality work in various sub-genres. It opened up a whole new world to me as a reader. To win awards in a category I love two years in a row is a dream come true. Literally. I encourage you to check out the list of winners, runners-up and finalist and maybe discover a new author. *Rainbow Awards 2017
Also, the entry fees for consideration are donated to various LGBTQ charities. This year over $13K was raised. Amazing! Thank you, Elisa for your tireless work and effort in the community. And congrats to all!Here are the stops for today and tomorrow for the Leaning Into a Wish blog tour. I’ll be back Sunday with the links for the final 5 stops that day! Thank you all for the love you’ve given Danny and Ryan. Holiday stories are one of my favorite things. Thanks for making my first ever foray into holiday books an enjoyable experience! Be sure to check out the rest of the stops and register for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
**Fun fact (in case you’re curious)… Leaning Into the Fall is closely related to Leaning Into a Wish though both are standalones.
Happy Reading and Happy Holidays! Lane xo
