1.   I’ve had good news about Accidental Activists in the past week. My book has been named a finalist for an INDIES Best Book Award in the category of LGBT nonfiction. INDIES Awards go to book from university and small presses. Winners will be announced on June 15th.

You can find a press release with information on the awards at:

2. I have spent the last few months editing Boundless, a new anthology of prose, short fiction and nonfiction to be published by the Compass Flower Press. Profits from the anthology will help to support the Unbound Book Festival in Columbia, Missouri (April 19-21) where the keynote speaker will be Zadie Smith, joined by Christina Baker Kline and Theresa Fowler as other headliners.

More on Boundless is available at: http://www.akayola.com/whats-new

I am scheduled to appear at the Unbound Book Festival on a panel discussing protest literature. Here is the description of that panel as it will appear in the festival program.
