Around the World: UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet

andrew potter
Dear friends, I'm officially out to the UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet in Manchester until the 16th. I'm actually a guest speaker O_O, and I still am trying to understand if they did a wise choice... anyway, some good coincidences made my speech very current, I will talk of the transition from romance reader (specifically Savage romance) to gay romance reader, and the influence of Maurice (that this year is 100 years old) and Annie Proulx (with a very nice surprise to the Italian attendees I bet they don't expect).

Anyway I thought nice to leave you with a "spread" of all authors who did a giveaway for the UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet!
