If you want a feel-good story that will probably make you cry, then click the link.

 

I really needed something like this when I came out.  I didn't get it, and it was a very rough time.  Maybe I'll write about it at some point, but not right now - I want to function for the rest of the day.

Great story, Wayne. Dovetails nicely with the chapter I published today. It highlights a 'community' coming together to support an injured soldier. I'm a big believer in personal involvement and lending a hand whenever possible.

Thanks for sharing that, Wayne. Sometimes all that a person needs when in crisis is to be heard.

Thanks, Carlos.  I too have elements of a community pulling and circling the wagons around our own.  People just being helpful and caring, and empathetic.  That's stuff I love to read and write too.

 

Your work is on my list to read.  What do you recommend, knowing that I like this feel-good stuff?  I mean, I know you love writing romance, so it'll probably all be good, right?  😈

You're welcome.  And yeah, we all just want someone to tell us "I've been there, right where you are.  And now I'm here, and I'm okay.  You will be too."

LMAO. A certain reader who shall remain nameless ( @dughlas ) demanded I start writing happy, sappy, romances after I posted today's chapter. Something about his eyes shedding water several times with today's chapter.

 

For the past couple of years I've concentrated on one series:CJ. Coming of age story following a gay teen who's now about to graduate from college. It's my best writing, particularly the books covering his college years. But it requires a commitment. The current book is number 10 and by the time it finishes posting, the series will have about 3/4 million words. It can be done, someone emailed me recently to let me know the binge read the previous nine books in a weekend. I hope he took food and bathroom breaks.

 

Try Tomorrow. Short story I wrote for the last anthology. It'll give you a decent idea of how many of my characters act. I do believe in happy endings. I don't believe in angst. There's drugs, sex, cussing, and banter in my work. I mostly write stories based on real life and if I could get paid for all my product placement I'd be rich.

Just what I needed to stem - happy as they were - my tears.

 

Thank you x2 Wayne. :)
