Oh, "Going Home" has got the most wonderful review from Dark Divas Reviews! I'm so happy about it, especially because writing short isn't that easy for me (my characters tend to talk a lot. I've no idea where they've got that from). But I really wanted to do something for Doctors Without Borders, and the story was there. I only had to use less than 8,000 words to tell it... My hair is a lot grayer now than when I started writing!
Read all of the lovely review here.
It's alive! And it's about to be published Wednesday:
"Going Home" is a short story about Colin and Jamie. Colin wants to save dying babies. Jamie just want Colin. He has never dared telling Colin that, because if he didn't, then Colin wouldn't have to turn him down. Then Colin decides to leave again, and Jamie has to do something.
"Going Home" is part of Torquere's birthday charity sips. That means that all of your money (all of it; nothing will be used for administration or stuff like that) goes straight to Doctors Without Borders - and Torquere doubles the amount.
When I first heard about the cause, I immediately decided to write something. I've donated money to Doctors Without Borders before - they do an excellent job, and they're completely neutral, which is very important to me. Then I visited Brindisi in the south of Italy, where the UN has a logistics base, and I knew right away that this town would be a great background for my story. The memory of the sunset over the harbor in the warm Italian summer evening lingered with me - and became the focal point of my story.
So, enjoy - I'll go upload an excerpt. And have a look at the other charity sips, too. The more you buy, the more Doctors Without Borders can do to help people.
I read and I write - everything from corporate to kink. My naughty fictional friends are always there to make my life interesting. And pester me, of course. Pesky creatures.
