I’m working on a sexy, new book project that has to remain on the DL for another couple of weeks.  In the meantime, I want to hear from you! This book will have a large cast of characters on the girlqueer-to-genderqueer spectrum and I want to know what kinds of girls you don’t think get enough representation in sexy books. Do you want to read more about FilAm fat femmes? Skinny AfroCuban butches? Deaf femme-faggots? What kinds of fabulous folks do you want to see more of?  Let me...
