LGBTQ Charity Giveaway

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

LGBT giveaway poster

We’ve all seen the stories on the news about the so-called ‘righteous’ folks who have been richly rewarded for public vilification of the gay community, flaunting their hatred and bigotry, not caring that they add nothing to the experience of anyone around them but reinforcement of the same hatred and bigotry.  Well, hopefully there is a silent but sympathetic majority who is willing to stand up for those who suffer disproportionately around them.

A community of over two hundred LGBTQ authors, bloggers, and publishers has banded together to stoke the fires of conscience among the truly righteous (, and we are betting that you are one of those who will rise to the occasion.  During this giveaway event, everyone who donates to an LGBTQ charity or shares the links to an LGBTQ charity on social media, and signs their name in the comments to the blog post below, will be entered to win one of a wide range of donated ebooks, including my own.

To keep things simple, entries will be managed by Rafflecopter.  Each participant can enter only once, by leaving a comment on the Diversereader blog (not this one), naming the charity they’ve donated to, or whose donation links they’ve shared (due to pay-for-play legal restrictions, we cannot demand proof of any donations made).  Once the entries are closed, Rafflecopter will randomly pick winners from the entrants, and we’ll match them up with donors on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you win a ebook from me, you are welcome to take your pick from any one of my six published fiction books.  The giveaway will launch on Diversereader at 9AM EST on April 18th and run until 11.59PM EST on May 1st.  Please leave your comments at to enter!

Audiobook Giveaway

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Happy Independence Day to my American peeps!  Time to try something new:  I’m giving away a pair of audiobook editions: Sunset (Pact Arcanum #1) and Sunrise (Pact Arcanum #2).


New Hardback Editions

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

So, for completeness, I created a hardback edition for each of the books. Why? I wanted them to have a little heft and permanence to them.  They were supposed to be for my family and friends, but I decided, why not share them with the rest of you, in case you like a book to be something heavy and solid in your hand.
