I’m delighted to announce that my short story, “Tango and Temptation”, was accepted by the team of writers who were making the decisions for the charity anthology “I DO”, spearheaded (and I don’t think that’s a metaphor, I think she really has a spear, 😉 ) by Alex Beecroft. This book will be released in February by MLR Press, and all the proceeds will be given to Lambda Legal to support marriage equality.
Alex is such a terriffic person and a wonderful writer. I wish I had all the names, but I know some of my favorite writers are involved which makes me feel like I was picked for the cool kids team at school. When there’s more to follow up with on this story I’ll be sure to share it.
Yes, now you know why all those YouTube tango embeds…
You can see from the ‘Freebies’ page on my website that marriage equality is a cause dear to my heart so you can imagine how delighted I am to be able to participate in this way.
Hey! This just in… for those of you who have been following the Freebies Uber Couple, Barry and Ethan, sometime before Christmas Eve, I’m going to share the story of their first Christmas together, in “The Cursed Noel”.
Their love was new and the boys were poor! Ethan’s family had disowned him and Barry’s wanted him home for Christmas. Ethan was surly and declared that they were a family and didn’t need anyone else, trying to make Barry choose. Barry was understanding until he had good reason to think Ethan might have made other plans. Christmas 1978: Karen Carpenter is singing ‘Merry Christmas Darling’, and everyone is still dancing disco, and Ethan’s plan to wrap his lover in beautiful music almost causes the whole thing to end there and then.
