It’s been a tough week for me, and I know I’m not alone in this. Fortunately, I received a little nugget of light today that lifted my spirits. I know the LGBT+ community is facing a tough four years, but now that I’ve had time to mourn and process what happened on Tuesday, I’ve gotten to the point where I just want to turn up the gay.
And what better way to start than by announcing the release date for Dreamspinner Press’s Love Wins Anthology! The collection of short stories with positive and uplifting endings will be released December 12th, and all proceeds will be donated to LGBT organizations in Central Florida.
I’m so happy that I could do something positive and meaningful to show my support for the victims of the Pulse shooting and offer a helping hand to those in desperate need of it. I fear the uphill battle that lies ahead of all of us in the coming years, but I also believe that ultimately Love Wins.
My contribution, Abstract Heart, turned out better than I could’ve hoped. It’s a sweet story about two awkward, art loving introverts who refuse to let their lack of social skills ruin their chance at love. It’s amazing how hard I fell for Kris and Nick in such a short time, but I with the same for you.
In addition to their romance, there are 16 other stories by wonderful authors who donated their time and effort into putting this anthology together, and I can’t wait to read them all!
