Seriously? A ROCK MUSICAL about BIPOLAR DISORDER? As the guy next to me said at intermission, “What happened to musicals with rainbows and butterflies and happy endings?” Believe me, there are no winners in this story.--A review of the very moving, very uncomfortable, 'next to normal'

In terms of a book contract, when it says the rights revert back to the author when the work is no longer in print in any of its formats, what constitutes "OUT OF PRINT" for a digital book?

That needs to be defined in the contract.

So, you are intrigued by the idea of reading a M/M romance, but you don't know where to start.
 
Not to worry. I've got a list. :)

YA LGBT Charity Book Drive Benefiting Lambert House in Seattle

Needless to say, when I cam across an opportunity to support a couple of causes near and dear to my heart--ensuring LGBT youth services, and providing books to those who need them, I was THRILLED.

Story
Tagline
Author of LGBT YA Romance. Reader of all things romance.
Introduction
j. leigh bailey is an office drone by day and the author of Young Adult LGBT Romance by night. She can usually be found with her nose in a book or pressed up against her computer monitor.  A book-a-day reading habit sometimes gets in the way of... well, everything...but some habits aren't worth breaking. She's been reading romance novels since she was ten years old. The last twenty years or so have not changed her voracious appetite for stories of romance, relationships and that achieving that vitally important Happy Ever After.  She's a firm believer that everyone, no matter their gender, age, sexual orientation or paranormal affiliation deserves a happy ending. 
 
She wrote her first story at seven which was, unbeknownst to her at the time, a charming piece of fan-fiction in which Superman battled (and defeated, of course) the nefarious X Luther. She was quite put out to be told, years later, that the character's name was actually Lex. Her second masterpiece should have been a best-seller, but the action-packed tale of rescuing her little brother from an alligator attack in the marshes of Florida collected dust for years under the bed instead of gaining critical acclaim.
 
Now she writes Young Adult LGBT Romance novels about boys traversing the crazy world of love, relationships and acceptance. 
 
I'm a proud member of Romance Writers of America, Windy City Chapter of RWA, and Rainbow Writers of America.
