Rainbow Crush and so much more...

I almost feel bad for trying to cram so much news into one post. I'll try to keep it brief.

Big News #1:

My first single-author short story collection is OUT! Rainbow Crush: Light-Hearted LGBT Fiction for Teens is available as an ebook and in print!

Five fun fictions from the author of Tiffany and Tiger’s Eye & Truth and Other Lies! In Rainbow Crush, revisit five favourite short stories featuring gay and lesbian characters:

In “I Hate Love,” Mila melts Laura-the-Ice-Queen’s heart as Jaden learns that dating an older man could have repercussions he hadn’t anticipated. Mila and Laura are back with impossibly high expectations in the side-splittingly funny housesitting comedy “Happy Birthday, Klutzface.” In “I Know What Gay Is,” Jay the teenaged manny and his young charge Sarah, who insists on being called Frank, find an unexpected ally on the soccer field.

School is back in session and tempers flare when Mila, Laura and Jaden stumble into a protest where classmates insist a gender-nonconforming new student “Dress Like A Dude.” In our final story, aspiring teen chef Noah comes out of the closet in a most surprising way during his first television appearance in “The Secret to a Perfect Latke.”

The ebook's available at Amazon:

Big News #2:

Hope you kept reading, because I don't want you buying Rainbow Crush just yet! Well, you can if you want to, but Amazon's allowing me to give it away FREE for 5 days. That'll happen from September 21-25th, just in time for Word on the Street and ending on the day I'll be...

Big News #3:

...taking over Twitter!  Okay, not all of twitter.  I'll be taking over Torquere Press's @torquere twitter feed from 2-4 p.m. EST on Thursday September 25th. If you don't know Torquere, they are the "parent" publisher of the Prizm Books imprint that brought you my debut novel Tiffany and Tiger's Eye! Be there or be square.

Big News #4:

Thanks to Brad @JazzFM91 for the shout-out on the radio today! Sometimes it's nice to be shouted at... or out...

Big News #5:

I realized that visitors arriving at my blog for the first time might have trouble figuring out that I'm a professional writer and that I've got books on the market and all that. To that end, I created a store you can visit just by clicking on "Foxglove's Fiction" at the top of the page. Here's the direct link: Okay, full disclosure: I saw other authors doing this and I thought it was a good idea. I'm a big copycat!

I think that's all the news you can use for now. Remember to grab a copy of Rainbow Crush on Sunday September 21st. The ebook will be free from then until Thursday of next week!
