eAnthology benefitting the Matthew Shepard Foundation
My short story Acceptance was contracted for an eAnthology from Troquere Press called Changing Minds. All of the proceeds (and a matching gift from the publisher) will go to the Matthew Shepard Foundation. (www.matthewshepard.org ) I will post more information here once the work is available for purchase, probably early in September. The story is a first-person narrative told by the gay son of a female Republican presidential candidate who defeats Hillary Clinton in a 2008 election that never was. It's a family drama that happens to overlap the national stage, not a political work. And I have to say it pained me for Hillary to be defeated again, but the needs of the story demanded it.
