There they were, the final words of the first draft of third book of the Archives Trilogy, Lesbians Ignite! In Victoria In the 1990s, that I’d been writing in a marathon effort for the past three years, on the computer screen: ‘This red hard covered book of 258 pages, BOLD, full of colourful photos and graphics as well as the courage of the LGBTIQ community members who have told their diversely different and interesting stories for our enjoyment, comes highly recommended.’

However, if I can at least get some of these rejected pieces onto the internet from time to time then all is not completely lost.
