Wonderful news everyone! Lynda A. Archer's Tears in the Grass has been named a finalist in the Lesbian Fiction Category for the 29th annual Lambda Literary Awards. The Lambda Literary Awards celebrate achievement in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer writing for books published in 2016.
What struck me at this year's Lambda Awards was the diversity of the award headings, spanning twenty-six categories from lesbian non-fiction through bisexual poetry, LGBTQ anthology, trans literature to gay mystery, and just about everything in between.
Today, as we know, the Lambda Awards gloriously celebrate the best of LGBTQ writing and "affirm that LGBTQ stories are part of the literature of the world."
It wasn't always like that.
The 25th Annual Lamda Literary Awards were announced in New York on Monday, June 3rd at a sold out gala ceremony. Dundurn is thrilled to announce that Jeffrey Round, author of Lake of the Mountain, won for Best Gay Mystery. Lake on the Mountain is the first in the Dan Sharp mystery series, and is set in Prince Edward County. Jeffrey Round has published five other novels, and has also written plays, and directed short films.
