Well, April is over and so is LGBTQ Voice 2012. It's been an amazing year for guest posts and interviews despite my own trouble in finding the time to set it up, and I can't thank the authors, readers, and other participants enough for making this an amazing two weeks. LGBTQ literature for young adults has come so far in the past few years, and I hope that it only grows in its scope and quality as readers become more aware of what it has the potential to become.
Now, here's a little recap of all of the interviews/guest posts/reviews done for the event:
Guest Post: Frank Anthongy Polito
Interview: Cheryl Rainfield
Interview: Tom Ryan
Interview: T.A. Chase
Review: Way to Go by Tom Ryan
Interview: S.J. Adams/Adam Selzer
Interview: Sarah Diemer
Interview: Emily M. Danforth
Interview: Brian Farrey
Interview: Hayden Thorne
Guest Post: Catherine Ryan Hyde
And here are the two giveaways I'm hosting for it - I've decided to just have everything end a week from now, May 10th, in case readers missed the giveaways and would like a chance at winning some *awesome* books and swag.
Giveaway: Digital Copy of Hunted
Giveaway: Signed Copy of Way to Go
Giveaway: Signed Copy of The Miseducation of Cameron Post & Swag
And, finally, the Giant Book Giveaway of Awesome! Readers, you will have a chance to win a box with these titles (and maybe some mystery titles, too) along with some random young adult book swag that I will sprinkle in there as best I can. Here are the current titles planned for the giveaway (all going to one winner, by the way).
With or Without You by Brian Farrey
Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
Unnatural by Michael Griffo
Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden
Hear Us Out! by Nancy Garden
Out of the Pocket by Bill Konigsberg
The End by Nora Olsen
Swimming to Chicago (ARC) by David Mathew Barnes

Note that I often like to add in "surprise" titles if I have them on hand, but all of the books listed will definitely be a part of the giveaway.
And, finally, the official form! Click the link, fill it out, and party (or not - I will not force you to party in this contest).
