Interviewed by Blak Rayne!

Come catch me over at Blak Rayne’s BLOG today – great interview questions and a spicy excerpt from my latest release!

 

Bisexual Invisibility

Okay, now THIS is scary. I follow blogger Mike Szymanski at the Bisexuality Examiner. I can’t remember quite how I found him in the first place – probably through the BiWriters group I belong to on Yahoo. But if I’d gone looking for him on a Google search, without that personal connection, I might never have found him. Did you know that when you start to search the term “bisexual” or “bisexuality,” the Google auto-complete function is blocked? This vastly reduces the number of hits you’re likely to get – making it appear there’s almost nothing out there on your topic.

He’s referencing a Huffington Post article by Faith Cheltenham, who’s done some research on this issue. As she points out, how many bisexual persons just looking for validation and affirmation will never find what they’re seeking because Google has blocked the auto-complete for searching the term bisexual? She offers data, and has some links to give Google some feedback. If you care about this issue, hop on over there and help fight bi invisibility.

 

“Camping” in the North Woods

Gotta love it! An eight hour drive yesterday to northern Wisconsin, where family members have a cabin on a fishing lake. We brought our motorhome and are parked on the side of their driveway. Yesterday, stifling heat all day, high humidity, no relief.

Last night, a powerful thunderstorm.

This morning – power is off. I had to get inventive with the coffee pot (which is an electric drip pot) – so I boiled water on the stove and poured it slowly through the drip basket. Ah, that first cup of coffee never tasted so good!

Now I’m sitting “camped” in the north woods, typing on my computer (which has a full battery charge) and hooked up to the internet with my wi-fi hot spot, also with a full battery charge.

Worst case scenario? If the power doesn’t come back on, we can start the generator, and we’ve got a full tank of gas.

Camping isn’t what it used to be!

For the record, we’ve spent our fair share of time sleeping on the hard ground in sleeping bags and dodging the rain, including a memorable outing at this same location when our tent blew over in the middle of the night, with our family in it…

And also a confession – this is an old pic, from a trip up here early in the autumn. Haven’t taken any pics yet this year.

Here’s to a happy Fourth of July for everyone!
