Hop for Visibility, Awareness and Equality #GLBTQ #giveaways


Main Page: http://hopforvisibilityawarenessandequality.blogspot.com/

Welcome friends as we again celebrate authors and readers of works featuring pairings of all colors of the rainbow.

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia. We seek to keep readers and authors safe, help them stay visible and show our support for the rainbow community.

I’ve worked with many publishers who feature and promote these kinds of stories but MLR Press is my pick for the best. Founded by author Laura Baumbach, the company was an early promoter of gay romance and is still going strong today. Kudos to Laura for her recent success:

RWA has formally granted MLR Press, and its imprints, status as a Qualifying

That translates to we meet their professional standards and they accept
us, our authors and our work as legitimate members of the official
romance writing community.

This brings more visibility, awareness and equality – not to mention legitimacy – to the genre Laura has worked so tirelessly to promote. I hope that many other publishers are able to follow suit and join the ranks of the “mainstream” publishing industry since the stories – whether asexual, gay, lesbian, Bi, trans, queer, and more – illustrate what to us authors has already been apparent: Love knows no boundaries.

I’m proud to be an MLR Press author!

A Soldier for Christmas

Trent returns from Iraq intent on claiming the man he kissed five years ago, only to find the war left a powerful obstacle in his way.

Cameron was sixteen when the hunky Trent Anderson kissed him and spoiled him for all other men. The next day, Trent left for a tour of duty in the Middle East without so much as a wave goodbye. When Trent returns five years later, he’s a changed man. Can Cameron put aside his long-held fantasies and accept the flawed solider he’s always wanted for Christmas?

Trent Anderson served for four years in the U.S. Army and then signed up for one more as a security contractor. He bears no physical scars from Iraq, but he secretly fights an invisible enemy. A sound, a look, a situation can trigger a flashback and send him right back into combat mode. When Cameron’s attacked, his PTSD escalates, and Trent must get help or else forfeit the man he left behind forever.
