ABOUT THE BOOK:

A newly single queer woman moves to New Orleans and sets off on a mission to find her most compatible match by going on a date with someone of each astrological sign in this rom-com from the Lambda Literary Award–nominated author of Queerly Beloved.

Reeling from a breakup with her long-term partner, Gray—an optimistic lesbian Aries—relocates to New Orleans for a new job. Gray wants to meet someone, settle down, and build the loving, accepting family she’s always wanted, but having been out of the dating scene for a decade, she has no idea where to start. After visiting an iconic astrologer, Gray and her best friend, Cherry, draw up a dramatic scheme: Gray will go on a date with someone of each zodiac sign to test their compatibility and get a jump start on creating the queer family of her dreams—all before her twenty-ninth birthday, when Saturn will usher in a major turning point in her life.

Gray’s got her hands full getting to know her new city, proving herself at her new job, wooing twelve new paramours—cue bathroom hookups, ghosts, getting ghosted, incredible macchiatos, and celesbians—and making some surprising discoveries about her needs and desires. Even when the dating challenge throws a few curveballs that make Gray question what she believes that she’s destined for, she’s determined to finish what she’s started while the planets are still on her side.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

Susie Dumond is a queer writer originally from Little Rock, Arkansas. She is the author of Queerly Beloved and Looking for a Sign, and she is also a bookseller at Loyalty Bookstore in DC and a senior contributor at Book Riot. Susie lives in Washington, D.C., with her spouse, Mary, and her cat, Maple. When she’s not writing or reading, you can find her baking cupcakes or belting karaoke at the nearest gay bar.

ABOUT THE IN CONVERSATION PARTNER: 

Andie Burke writes romantic comedies in between her pediatric RN shifts. She lives in Maryland with an alarming number of books, ultra-fine point pens, dehydrated houseplants, and two small humans. When you read this, she’s probably listening to Taylor Swift or finding a new hyper-fixation for her ADHD brain. Her debut Fly with Me was listed as one of POPSUGAR’s Best Romance Books of 2023 and AUTOSTRADDLE’s Best Queer Books of the Year. Her next book Fall for Him will be out in Fall 2024.

Please note Loyalty has a zero tolerance policy for harassment or intimidation of any kind during this event.
