Sapphire Books Publishing is thrilled to announce that the 2nd Annual Left Coast Lesbian Conference will be held at the lovely Casitas Laquita resort, Oct. 8-12, 2014. The Desert Palm Press co-hosts the event, which brings authors and readers together to discuss writing in the genre.
In the mornings, authors who write mysteries, romance, paranormal, lesbian comics and historical fiction will discuss the craft of writing, moving from the page to the stage, from page to panel and the all too critical hook. The afternoon will be filled with author readings from some of the most prolific writers in lesbian fiction today.
The LCLC is proud to announce the keynote speaker for the event is award-winning author, Ellen Hart. Ellen Hart is the author of 28 crime novels in two different series. She is a five-time winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Best Lesbian Mystery, a three-time winner of the Minnesota Book Award for Best Popular Fiction, a three-time winner of the Golden Crown Literary Award in several categories, a recipient of the Alice B Medal, and was made an official GLBT Literary Saint at the Saints & Sinners Literary Festival in New Orleans in 2005. In 2010, Ellen received the GCLS Trailblazer Award for lifetime achievement in the field of lesbian literature. Ellen Hart will be speaking at the Palm Springs Public Library Saturday at 4pm.
