Quote I Love: Dream New Dreams

quote_nevertooold

I have so many plans for this year (both personally and professionally), and after a rough 2016, I can’t tell you how excited I am about the possibilities ahead.

I hope each and every one of you find new dreams to dream this year!

All Romance eBooks is Closing as of 12/31/16. Download your books!

All Romance eBooks announced yesterday that they are shutting down operations as of 12/31/2016.

If you have purchased books in your library that you didn’t back up, be sure to download them before the site goes dark in just a couple of days.

Also, if you have ebooks bucks left in your account, try to use those as soon as you can. Some people have said their ebook bucks have been frozen, but my wife was able to use hers last night. She had to make sure the total of her order was smaller than the amount of ebook bucks, then she was able to see the option to use her available funds.

The All Romance site has been overwhelmed with traffic since it announced its plans to close and completely shut the site down. It seems somewhat better today than last night. However, if you have purchased any of my ebooks and were not able to download them from the All Romance site, send me a copy of your receipt, and I will email you the book.

I will be leaving my self-published titles up for a little while longer so that anyone with gift cards can select my books if they’d like.

Quotes I Love: Yes. This. A thousand times this.

quote_tv

Today’s quotes came from this article: Positive LGBTQ representation in media really can change lives. This touching story proves it.

“…when a person has no one around her accepting who she is, it’s even more important that she can turn on the television and see that, at the very least, someone out there in the world will accept and love her no matter what.” -German Lopez

“I wouldn’t come out for a few years. But when I did, I can genuinely thank a show like Will and Grace for making it easier. It became less about waiting until my parents were ready and more about waiting until I was ready.” -German Lopez

Yes! This!

Books and TV have always been a big part of my life. I was a latchkey kid from the time I was pretty young. TV was my after-school and Friday night companion, and the shows that I chose to watch helped shape my values and worldview.

So it’s kind of neat to realize that, as I grew older, shows like Ellen, Will and Grace, Queer as Folk, and The L Word–as well as so many queer books that I couldn’t even begin to name them all–significantly changed my life. They allowed me to feel more comfortable with showing the people around me who I really was, and I will forever be grateful for that.
