As I type this, I see once again violence has played its hand in France, following on the heels of the shooting in Dallas. It's easy to lose hope in humanity, to give up.

It's the one thing we must not do. There is a lot of good in this world but good is quiet, harder to see sometimes than the bad. None the less, good is everywhere and this anthology is a shining example of that. More than fifty authors pooled together to create something to be sold to aid the victims. Some of of us wouldn't necessarily call ourselves poets, myself included but strong emotion is a fantastic motivator and muse.

I am honored to be part of this project. I'm put in mind of Martin Luther King Jr's words, “Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” As true today as it was then.

So if you want to aid a great cause, pick up a copy. It's now available in ebook and paperback versions.

And there is a rafflecopter giveaway. Check it out here

A collection of poems composed by over fifty authors


in aid of the victims and survivors of the Orlando Pulse Attack.

On June 12, 2016, the most horrendous mass shooting in US history and an unfathomable act of hate was directed at the LGBT community in Orlando. The horror of this tragedy reverberated around the world, leaving millions shocked and appalled at the senseless violence that destroyed so many innocent lives.

In a display of solidarity with the victims and survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting, a group of LGBTQ+ and straight allies, from all across the globe, came together to produce a collection of poems in celebration of love and acceptance.

The resulting Love is Love Poetry Anthology is dedicated to the families and victims of the shooting and all proceeds of this work will be donated to Equality Florida’s Pulse Victims Fund.

In this small way, the authors, along with the readers who purchase this work, seek to contribute to the lives of those who still suffer from the consequences of the malice directed toward them, and offer some positivity and compassion in the face of such bigotry.

One of my fellow authors at Dreamspinner Press,Jamie Fessenden, has a novella coming out Dogs of Cyberwar check out the cover here

The Dogs of Cyberwar" by Jamie Fessenden
 
Connor is a netrunner: a hacker who ventures into cyberspace to steal data from corporate computers. As he hides out in the slums of Seattle, he’s attacked by a street gang and, incredibly, rescued by one of the members. His rescuer is a man named Luis, who has decided Connor needs his protection.

But instead of providing safety, Luis’s presence wreaks havoc with Connor’s online identity, and they find themselves hunted by a lethal security force. While they attempt to escape the city, Connor finds himself struggling to survive with the most lethal killer ever pitted against the corporations that control the FreeCorp—and he risks losing his heart to the same man.
