June 5 – Love with Pride: A Celebration of LGBTQ Romance Fiction

June5_14_Box2Reading Event with Nick DiMartino, Daisy Harris, J. Tullos Hennig, and Laylah Hunter

7:00pm – University Book Store (University District Location)

Come celebrate Pride month and LGBTQ love stories as GRNW presents a special reading event with four northwest writers—Nick DiMartino, Daisy Harris, J. Tullos Hennig, and Laylah Hunter. Whether they explore romance in the modern day or medieval times, each author shines a spotlight on LGBTQ relationships and the universality of love.

(Due to unforeseen circumstances, Jove Belle and Kade Boehme are no longer able to attend this reading.)

The reading will be at 7pm at the University Book Store in Seattle! We hope you can join us!

Pre-Event Meet-up! For those interested, we’ll be meeting at the restaurant Flowers on the corner of 43rd and University Way starting from 5:30pm. Just look for the GRNW table!


Nick DiMartino has had over twenty plays in full-run productions across the United States. He’s been the campus book-buyer for the University Book Store at the University of Washington for over forty years, hosts two book clubs, and reviews international fiction online for Shelf Awareness. His books include: Student Union, The Devil in Love, Joseph Golem, Women Who Can’t Stop Talking, Love in the American Empire, Pineapple Moon, Changes, Dude, Ghost Novels, Christmas Ghost Story, University Ghost Story, Seattle Ghost Story, Memoirs, Mars versus Maple School, and Throw Me Among My Own

Daisy Harris lives in Seattle in a house full of dogs and children. When she’s not writing gay romance, she can be found experimenting with new ways to cook kale. Every once in a while, she goes out to pay homage to the party of gods of her youth—and maybe to find a little trouble. She is the author of multiple gay romance novels including From the Ashes, After the Rain, Nothing but Smoke, and the Men of Holsum College series.

J Tullos Hennig has had varied professions over a lifetime—artist, dancer, teacher, equestrian—but has never successfully managed to not be a writer. J Tullos is blessed with an understanding spouse, kids, and grandkids, and is alternately plagued and blessed with a small herd of horses and a geriatric collie…. Hennig’s works include the novels Greenwode and Shirewode. Greenwode was a 2013 Rainbow Award winner for Best B/T & LGBT Fantasy, Paranormal Romance & Sci-fi / Futuristic.

Laylah Hunter writes speculative fiction, often queer, often erotic, often concerned with power dynamics, and sometimes all of those things at once. Hunter’s mild-mannered alter ego has a day job in one of the driest and stuffiest corners of the publishing industry, a video game habit, and two cats who consistently fail their aloofness checks. Hunter writes best on rainy days and is powered mostly by lattes, which made moving to Seattle a wise career choice.

  1. Jayson James would be a good author to have to replace the two that cannot make it. Please say hi to Daisy Harris, I love her books!
