As the train wreck that is Faleena Hopkins’ career implosion continues, here are some authors who are involved in this who I am giving a shout out to in support.

You can find his Amazon page here.

All royalties from the sales (70% of the cover price once the vendors take their cut) will be split between two LGBT charities: The Human Rights Campaign in the USA and Stonewall in the UK.

As a self-publisher, I realise you’re putting a lot of trust in me as an individual…
