Jenny Block, Fox News, and Open Marriage - Who Would Have Thought?

Much to my surprise and delight, Fox News included a mention about me and my new book, "Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage" in an interesting piece about reality shows and polyamory. The piece is titled, "Can You Be in Love With More Than One Person" and was written by Yvonne K. Fulbright. I hope you'll check it out and let me know what you think!

The Hook and The House

I am finally on the East Coast! I can hardly believe it. It's been a year since I've been back in Virginia. I had a great time last night doing a reading at Writer House in Charlottesville. The Hook was generous enough to do a really nice piece about "Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage" and about the event. Thank you to Burnley Hayes and all of my new Writer House friends for having me.

And I also had a fabulous time in Austin, Texas on Wednesday appearing at Book People. Thank you so much to Karen Kreps for inviting me. It was an amazing turn-out. Interestingly, about 80% of the crowd raised their hands when Karen asked the group if anyone was in a polyamorous relationship. It was great fun to be part of the "out" majority for a change! Thank you also to Allison for blogging about it for her site WomenBloom.

Lots of radio and print media coming up, so be on the lookout!

Punishment for being HIV-Positive

This only takes a second. So, please be sure to click. 

Under current U.S. law, our government is telling countless individuals with HIV that they are banned from the U.S.

A repeal to the ban is in the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. Please click here to tell Congress that we expect them to support the repeal.

Quick DFW, the San Francisco Chronicle, and "Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage"

I was lucky enough to be a guest on Leah Shafer's pocast "Girltalk" two weeks in a row. You can listen to both interviews at Quick DFW's website. Just click on "Girltalk" on the right hand side of the screen.

And be sure to check out the San Francisco Chronicle for a piece about me and "Open" by Talia Kennedy. I had such a great time talking to her, I almost forgot I was being interviewed!

More Tour Stops

Well, I'm headed back to San Francisco this weekend and I can't wait! I'll be reading at Good Vibrations at 7:00p.m. on Saturday, July 12th and the event will be followed by a birthday celebration for none other than Carol Queen. I'm so excited!

Next week, I'll be in Austin, Texas at Book People, also at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 16.

And then I'm off to the East Coast. I'll be reading at Writer House in Charlottesville, Virginia on Friday, July 18th at 7:00p.m.

Hitting the Big Time - in the Polyamory and Open Marriage Universe Anyway

A really wonderful piece came out about me yesterday in The Observer - UK. I hope you'll have a look and let me know what you think! 

Just so you know, it does have a few little bumps - like calling me a swinger and saying Jemma lives with us - neither of which is correct - but overall it is a beautiful piece and I am very grateful to Louise France for writing it. I also want to thank Martha Camarillo for the gorgeous photo and Rey Medrano for doing such a smashing job on my hair and make-up.
