Someone and Something Really Special

Almost two year ago, I had the extreme pleasure of meeting someone really special, my friend Kim. A lot of you may know Kim as one of the hardest working writers in erotic romance. Since August of 2008, she's had 26 books published by Total-e-bound, 4 freebie stories, also with TEB and three (soon to be four) with Resplendence Publishing. Not only is she prolific, she writes damn good stories with amazing characters.

In addition, to being one of my favorite writers and people, she's also one of the kindest people I've ever met. She's wickedly funny and I consider myself lucky to call her a friend.

She's doing something really special this month that I'd like to share with you. All of the proceeds from her newest release, Gay Friendly, (web site and third party sales) are going to support an amazing charity - Ty Hafan - a childrens' hospice in near her home in Wales. This organization provides respite and end of life care for children under the age of nineteen.

I believe the death of a child is the single most agonizing experience a parent can have. And how awful is it to be a child and know that you might not make it to your next birthday? Ty Hafan supports these kids and their families.

Like I mentioned earlier, all of the proceeds for Kim's latest release are going to a good cause, so head over to TEB and pick up your very own copy.

Gay Friendly by Kim Dare

Book nine in the G-A-Y Series

Ellis thought a gay friendly hotel sounded nice. He didn't realise just how friendly the men there would be...

Ellis is gay and out - technically at least. Unfortunately the only other gay man he's acquainted with is his cousin Harry. When he suddenly gets the chance to visit a gay friendly hotel with his cousin, in exchange for paying his share of the petrol money, he assumes the impromptu holiday will be a nice gentle way to ease his way into gay society before he starts university in September.

Dominant Mitchell Thompson has fond memories of the hotel where he came out almost two decades ago. He returns there every year, and always finds it to be exactly the same unashamedly kinky hook-up party it has always been. When he stumbles across a sweet little novice who's obviously way out of his depth at the resort, his trip down memory lane suddenly becomes far more interesting.

She is fabulous, isn't she?! :)

I bought this story earlier today and just finished reading it - I'm always impressed that Kim can balance the sweet and the kinky in her stories, which is not something you see everywhere.

I feel very humbled by Kim's act of kindness and the depth of her compassion.

I can't imagine losing one of my children, or any other child I care for and love, regardless of whether they're mine.

I tip my hat to you Kim and to you Bronwyn, for sharing Kim's generosity and for making us all realize there are grander things in this world.

I'm heading over to buy my copy right now...

Kim... I can't tell you how proud we are for helping out.

I agree a great cause. I'm heading over to buy my copy. :)
My DH and I raised funds for a similar cause after losing our son earlier this year.
Hope Kim sells truck loads of books.

Well, it looks like blogger isn't behaving nicely today. I left a comment last night and for some strange reason it's gone...

Luckily I don't give up that easily, so here it is again!!!
