What you're Saying when You Say "I Don't Need the Mic"
By Erika A. Hewitt
August 31, 2017

This is directed at a Unitarian Universalist audience, but can apply to any group or event.

“When a mic is being used at a meeting and someone looks at it and says, ‘Do we really need this?’ I feel outright anger. That person just asked if people like me really exist and demanded that we defend ourselves.”

Why this piece is awesome: This is so great! Matt and Luke having lunch together on a rooftop, chatting away and gesturing at their city. They are bros! Love the details (definitely click to make it bigger) like the cheese dripping from Matt's burger, and the napkin on his leg. They both just look really happy and relaxed.

Rise Again, An Interview.

Hey, guys! Long time, no see. I have so much to tell you - some good, some bad. But I'm not going to tell you any of it right now. LOL. Because right now I want to do a little promoting, of my self-publishing book page and of my friend's, LJ Hamlin, newest book. This book of hers was important to me because the lead character becomes disabled throughout the book and dates a disabled character as well. Good disability rep can be hard to find, especially in the romance genre. Plus, the character is a bad boy ballet dancer, which is such a weak spot for me, omg. And hey, some of you may even recgonize LJ Hamlin's writing from her fanfic days! Anyways, here's the interview & I'll try to get back soon with some RL updates.


I recently had the pleasure of reading LJ Hamlin's newest book - about to be released on September 19th - Rise Again. Rise Again is a M/M romance novella starring the bad boy of ballet, Arkady. When Arkady suffers an accident, he fears everything good about his life may come to an end. Until a few unexpected people come along and offer him a chance for a fresh start. Or, as the author may say, a chance to rise again Of course, the biggest question in all of this is, was his accident really an 'accident'?

Besides having the pleasure of getting a sneak peek at this book, I also enjoyed sitting down with the author and asking her a few questions. You can read my interview below. Full disclosure: LJ & I have known each other for several years now, both through writing and through the disability community.

Full interview below the cut. )

Rise Again is a romance, a mystery and a healing process. It's available from Less Than Three Press and on Amazon on September 19th.

This interview was conducted and written by one of Westword Books aspiring new authors. Her book will be released soon. Check out Westword Books on Facebook for more updates. This interview is (c)Westword Books.
