I'm thrilled that Manipulation (Diversion 4) and Redemption (Diversion 5) both placed in the 2015 Rainbow Awards for The Dorien Grey Award for Best Gay Mystery / Thriller.
Redemption tied for seventh place and Manipulation scored the number ten spot.
But more than placing, I'm honored to be a part of something that, in so short a time, has done so much good in our genre and in the community. Also, much appreciation to Elisa Rolle for naming awards after some our own who, sadly, are no longer with us.
Participation in the Rainbow Awards raised more than $17,300 dollars for LGBT charities.
Thanks to the judges who gave of their time for this endeavor. So many authors, myself included, have benefited from Elisa Rolle's site, reviews, and efforts to get the word out about the great stories available from both publishers and indie authors.
I'll post no links to Manipulation and Redemption here, as this isn't an ad; this is just my way of saying thanks to all the folks who have made this possible, of showing my admiration for my fellow authors, showing appreciation for readers and reviewers, and remembering dear friends.
Hugs to you all,
I'll leave you with Paul Richmond's Rainbow Boy.
