Karin Kallmaker Awards and Reviews, Events and Appearances

cover Just Like That by Karin Kallmaker

The second annual convention in Altanta was fabulously fun! There’s nothing like the laughter of women to put me in a great, creative mood.

Time spent chatting with readers is always well-spent, and I love signing books. Equally energizing is the chance to meet and talk to other writers, because we all share the same passion for lesbian literature.

The mayhem and madness of charades, jeopardy and panel readings was a terrific contrast with the studied and serious presentation of writing techniques. I was honored to pick up my second Goldie for Just Like That! Ann Bannon was the keynote speaker this year, and her intimate look at the publishing of pulp fiction was fascinating. This one will be hard to top!
