Lambda Literary Award Finalists

The LGBT 26th Annual Lambda Literary Awards or the "Lammys," as they are affectionately known were announced by the Lambda Literary Foundation (LLF) in Los Angeles after reviewing a record 746 submissions which is up from 687 last year & from 352 publishers which is up from 332 last year. Submissions came from major mainstream publishers & from academic presses, from both long-established & new LGBT publishers as well as from emerging publish-on-demand technologies. Tony Valenzuela LLF Executive Director stated, "Today is a day to celebrate the richness of our literature & to give hearty congratulations to our outstanding shortlisted authors & their publishers. The deep commitment to advance our community's literature by our highly qualified volunteer judges who read & deliberate on the submitted books - & often anguish over the selection of finalists - make the Lammys possible." S. Chris Shirley LLF Board President added, "This is our fifth straight year of record-breaking Lambda Literary Award submissions. We're especially excited to add an LGBT Graphic Novel category to accommodate their explosive growth over the past few years & to recognize the extraordinary talent behind them." Now in their 26th years the Lambda Literary Awards celebrate achievement in lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender writing for books published in 2013. Winners will be announced during a ceremony on Monday evening, June 2, 2014 at The Great Hall at Cooper Union, 7 East 7th Street in NYC. Details on the annual after-party location are forthcoming. Congrats to Richard Bowes For Dust Devil on a Quiet Street...:)
