Hope & Love Anthology. A CHBB – LGBTQ Charity Collection.




100% of all proceeds will go to the MKE-LGBT Community Center.

It starts with hope. That’s what LGBTQ Centers all over the world give us, the hope, the community, the care and education we need in a world that is often hate filled, scared of the unknown, and down right scary. When first introduced to community many of us rejoice as it’s often the first time we’re able to be out and be our true selves without fear or shame.

This anthology is for the benefit of one such center, one that touches many many lives, and like others, needs help and nourishment as well. Centers like the MKE LGBT Community Center depend on the love and support of others so that they may help and support us.

Within this collection of stories, you will find hope, family, love, and community. Take a chance on a new author or one of your beloved… read, enjoy, and know that you are helping children, adults, teens, and elderly alike in our greater LGBTQ community!

When I heard about this anthology, I immediately jumped on it. The center is one I’ve been two, donated to, and hung out with a few members during PrideFest this last year, so supporting them was important to me. They have so many great programs from teens, adults, and the older in our community. I hope you’ll check out this great collection, and at ony $2.99, it’s a steal!

My entry in the anthology is called “Micah’s Medicine” (as you see above, lol). It’s my first YA story, so no, there’s not sex, lol. The entire anthology is erotic-free, and with 15 stories by some great established and new authors, you know it’s a feast for your eyes!

So, what’s Micah’s Medicine about? Well… When Micah Sands runs into his best friend, and secret crush, Perry (Pericles Mann) near the skate park, he’s torn between joy and fear. Micah knows he’s different and is terrified of both his family and his friend finding out about his sexuality. But when Perry asks for his help, he finds more than he bargained.
