• The Sense of Sight – RJ Scott’s Autism Awareness Blog Hop & a Free Book!

    I’m honoured to be part of RJ’s Blog Tour for Autism Awareness,  highlighting the Five Senses. An interesting fact you may not know about autism is:  People with an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) who are hyposensitive to smell may have no sense of smell at all, and fail to notice extreme odours (this can include their own body odour). Some people may lick things to get a better sense of what they are. When I found out this blog tour would revolve around the five senses, my first thoughts went to Isaac Brannigan from Blind Faith. He was one of my first characters I ever wrote. A very stubborn, impatient,…

  • M/M Veterans Day Scavenger Hunt

    Welcome to the MM Veterans Day Scavenger Hunt Today I am hosting  2 Bibliophiles Guide Welcome to Jenn and Lynde from 2 Bibliophiles Guide on my blog. Aussies don’t have Veterans Day so the first question I asked when we were discussing the blog – what is Veterans Day? Over to Jenn and Lynde. Veterans Day is a public holiday held on the anniversary of the end of World War I (November 11) to honor US veterans and victims of all wars. When we decided to explain what Veterans Day meant to each of us, I was kinda stumped.  I realize the two blogs being from different countries had completely…

  • LGBTQ Push Back Giveaway!

    I am a part of the fantastic fundraising efforts of our bloody awesome m/m community. The LGBTQ Push Back Charity Giveaway is raising money and awareness, in retaliation to recent (and very public)  anti-gay money raising schemes. So let’s show them that we can do better! But first some serious stuff. I have used this next segment from The Diverse Reader post (links below) but I thought they were important to share: We might work in a world of fiction, but here are some facts. LGBT people make up less than 10% of the overall population, yet 40% of homeless kids in the U.S. identify as LGBT. Of them, 68%…

  • Can you see discrimination?

    April 2nd is World Austism Awareness Day Fact on Austism: People with autism may demonstrate above average levels of concentration, reliability and accuracy. ~~~~~~ So I’m taking part in RJ Scott’s April Blog Hop, aimed at discrimination and prejudice.  When thinking about what form of discrimination I could write about, it seemed only fair that with my two recent releases, Blind Faith and Through These Eyes, that I approached the discrimination that blind people in our communities face on a daily basis. As a member of any community in the developed world, whether able sighted or not, we are entitled to basic human rights.  So what are the rights of blind…
