New Release: Project Fierce Chicago Charity Anthology

Happy release day to my fellow authors in the Project Fierce Chicago Charity Anthology! This anthology was a labor of love. The subject of GLBTQ homelessness is near and dear to my heart. I’ve even addressed the topic on this blog in the past. When I heard about Project Fierce Chicago, an up and coming charity trying to raise money to purchase properties which it hoped to convert into transitional homes for some of the homeless GLBT youth in the city, I wanted to do something to help. I didn’t have the means to donate a huge amount of money myself, but I thought maybe if we put together an anthology, as I’d seen done before, we might be able to give them a sizable amount over time. The owners of Less Than Three Press generously agreed to produce the anthology and to give up their own earnings to the cause. All proceeds minus vendor fees (by Amazon, etc) will be going to Project Fierce Chicago. If you can spare just $8.99, you’ll be getting 20 stories for a total of 165K words, focused on the idea that everyone out there deserves a safe home, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Help us support this great cause! And if you’d rather donate directly to the charity, please find the link at the bottom of this post.

My sincerest thanks go out to every author who joined me in contributing to this anthology, and to LT3, one of the best GLBT publishers around. You guys have a supporter for life in me for agreeing to put this anthology together. ♥

About Piper Vaughn

Piper Vaughn wrote her first love story at eleven and never looked back. Since then, she’s known that writing in some form was exactly what she wanted to do. A reader at the core, Piper loves nothing more than getting lost in a great book—fantasy, young adult, romance, sci-fi, she loves them all! As a bisexual and Latinx person, Piper takes great pride in her heritage. She grew up in an ethnically diverse neighborhood and strives to put faces and characters of every ethnicity in her stories, so her fictional worlds are as colorful as the real one. Above all, she believes that everyone needs a little true love in their life … even if it’s only in a book.
