The last day of 12 Days of Kissmas is here! How did that happen so fast? Our final author this holiday season, N.R. Walker, is one of the most generous people…as you will see with her post. She is giving and caring, and passionate about the LGBTQIA+ Community. Not just her readers, but those that may never see her name in print. Check out her post, and check out the organizations she supports. She has a generous giveaway for you, too! A HUGE welcome to N.R. Walker!!! (And a hearty thank you to all the authors and readers for supporting this fun holiday event we do!)
I cannot believe it is this time of year again!
December has been a crazy-busy month for me. I’ve had two new releases, one re-release, and one translation that will be out on Christmas Day!
The holiday season is always a double-edged sword, and if I’m being completely honest, it’s not something I personally enjoy. Families are such a complex dynamic, aren’t they?
But for most, Christmas, Hanukkah, and the holidays is a wonderful time. Many people celebrate with families, eat too much food, give and receive lovely gifts, and feel very loved.
Some people aren’t so lucky. Some people don’t get gifts, don’t have special dinners, and they don’t have family. Some people are disowned and shunned, simply because of who they fall in love with.
It’s important to remember as we read LGBTQIA+ books, and we swoon over cute pictures of kisses, that there are serious hardships, especially at this time of year.
I don’t want to be a downer on your Christmas mood, but in the spirit of Christmas, this is the perfect time of year to think of others. And if you can, give a little something for those who aren’t so lucky.
Some wonderful organisations you can help:
N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
