Dreamspinner Press is celebrating their ninth anniversary by having a sale! And not only on my titles. From May 1-7, all titles of authors from the first year through the third are 40% off. I encourage you to go over to their website and check it out.
Romance is fun and satisfying. Happy endings! The real world is depressingly prompt in supplying realities and chores, but romance novels are not only an escape into a fantasy world. Calgon, take me away!
When Dreamspinner Press was first started, there were very few publishers offering stories about gay romance, as if the entire gay population didn't exist.
Just by offering these stories, Dreamspinner has changed the world, not only by printing stories with happy endings, but by opening the door to discussions about gay marriage, gay rights, such as parental rights, couple rights and the right to be just a person and citizen without the appellation of "gay". Such stories reveal the discrimination, hatred and violence that many LGBTQT face every day, that can lead to suicide, drug use, incarceration, homelessness, violence and death.
When a LGBTQ person can read a story and see themselves depicted as admirable and even heroic, their world has been changed. When any person who does not identify as LGBTQ reads these romance stories and changes their mind even a little, the world has been changed and for the better.
That's why I celebrate Dreamspinner's anniversary. Changing the world one story at a time.
