I am so fucking psyched for the Christmas holiday season this year! Finally a year where I feel so damned good and things are really looking positive in my life. I’ve got the world by the proverbial balls right now. My family is great, the dogs are doing well, my house is in order and I have a new woman in my life. What more can a Butch ask for ? Sure, I still have my share of hard stuff to deal with, bills and the such, but overall life is sailing along swimmingly!!!
I ordered Ivan Coyote’s new book, A Tomboy Survival Guide, and the Barnes and Noble bookstore emailed and said it’s ready for pick up! I cannot wait to get it and begin reading the latest works of Ivan. I have all of Ivan’s other books, as a matter of fact I just loaned one to my best friend here. I’ll have to ask her if she’s reading it yet.
I am looking for more good lesbian books to read and review here and on my YouTube channel. If you have a recommendation or if you are a writer and want me to read and review your book, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Direct email is the best way to reach me. I tried to email someone who wanted me to read and review a book and I evidently have the wrong email because when I sent it to the email she indicated in her comment it bounced back as undeliverable. I WISH that WordPress would add an email account to our pages, that way a reader would not even have to leave the page to email a writer directly. I do know if I would upgrade to a full website for my blog, which is hosted by WordPress too, that I would have that in the webpage package….so perhaps I will soon do that. I need to register my web name and invest a few dollars into it I guess. Perhaps I will seriously consider doing this, it only makes sense.
On the note of doing reviews, I am particularly fond of books about the Butch-femme dichotomy and lifestyle. Since I am Butch and I tend to date femmes this only makes sense. But I am also interested in books dealing with sexual identity, Butch and Trans issues and stories. I blur the gender lines so much that I am often asked if I identify as Trans. I do identify as Trans-masculine, but not as Trans-gender. I’ve struggled with my identity for most of my life, and there was a time when I may have questioned my gender, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I am fine being female bodied, as long as I can do it in a masculine way! I’m definitely the definition of Butch, by stereotype, and that just fits me perfectly.
As far as me writing a book, as I have been told I need to do by so many people, that’s a thought that is definitely in my head. I would love to write a book of short stories of my life experiences and adventures. I just need to get lined up with a good editor who can push me in the right direction. I have the stories, some even already on paper or in the computer, but I don’t know how to write a book, or how to put one together for publication. All things that a good editor would know and would be able to guide me to do. I suppose I should start looking around and querying as to who I should contact and with which publishing company I should be trying to work with to do a book. Hmm….2017 is going to be a very big year I think!
Alrighty then, I am off to work on another blog. What have you read that you think I would like to read? I’m seriously looking for suggestions!!! Peace! ~MB
