Author Jessica Verday Stands up for LGBT Rights!!

I know a lot of you will remember the controversy behind the Wicked Pretty Things anthology, and how author Jessica Verday wasn't allowed to include a story featuring an m/m romance. Jessica wrote a bit about her reasoning and how she wished to do something else with her fans could still read it.

But now you can purchase her story, Flesh Which is Not Flesh, via amazon. Not only does it sound amazing but I'm really honored how Jessica is using some of the proceeds. If you aren't yet aware...if you purchase this story anytime through the month of August, half of those sales will go toward my Living Beyond Tolerance scholarship. I wrote Jessica awhile ago about possibly helping out or simply spreading the word...and when she emailed me back with this idea, I was floored. It's one of the sweetest things anyone has done, and I really appreciate it.

I hope you will support this scholarship and more importantly Jessica by buying the short story and telling others about it too.

If you wish to apply for the scholarship, please read the "rules" (if you will) here!

Thank you to Jessica, everyone who buys this story, everyone who donated so far to my upcoming auctions, and to everyone who applies or spreads the word about the scholarship.

Let's all Live Beyond Tolerance!!
