I know it's been a while since new content has been posted to loldarian.com so I thought I'd check in and explain my absence for those of you who are unaware. The mini-book tour in support of my new book When Love Takes Over: A Celebration of SGL Couples of Color is currently underway. I launched the book here in Atlanta on Tuesday night to a large and enthusiastic crowd at Outwrite Bookstore (photos and video forthcoming). Many thanks to all of you who came out to support and have purchased the book. I'm also working my butt off in school to complete my journalism degree on top of my full-time job, so there's a lot on my plate.

I urge you to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (if you haven't already) if you want to stay informed about LGBT news. I update on both sites frequently with the latest news concerning our community. You can also follow my colleague @rodmccullom on Twitter to stay in the know.

My next stop on the book tour will be the Literary Cafe at Atlanta Black Gay Pride on Saturday, Sep 3, 2011 from 11am-3pm at The Melia Hotel in midtown Atlanta and Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at Nectar Wine Bar in New York City from 7pm-9pm (see flyer below for details). I'll also be making two appearances in Nashville, TN at the end of October. If you're interested in your city being added on the tour hit me up at whenlovetakesover@me.com.

Thanks for all of the love and support. I look forward to meeting many of you on the road!
