So, super quick reminder tonight!
The first thing is that I’ve released this story–which was previously in the Grand Adventures anthology–as a freebie on what is now Prolific Works. You can claim your copy here-– it’s a teeny tiny feel good vignette, so enjoy!
Here’s the blurb!
A Gentle Shove of Human Kindness
Witness the Angel Gabriel.
a.k.a. “Heaven’s biggest prick”
Gabriel has been accused of the crime of hubris–and his sentence is to remember why angels protected humans in the first place. A permanent seat at Starbucks might be Gabriel’s idea of hell, but it’s there that he meets the irrepressible Jamie and wounded Ernie, and realizes that the human race might be worth saving after all.
It just needs a gentle shove of human kindness.
Sometimes the best Christmas gift is knowing what you really want.
Rusty Baker is a rich, entitled, oblivious jock, and he might have stayed that way if he hadn’t become friends with out-and-proud Oliver Campbell from the wrong side of the tracks. When Oliver kisses him goodbye before Rusty leaves for college, Rusty is forced to rethink everything he knows about himself.
But nothing can help Rusty survive a semester at Stanford, and he returns home for Thanksgiving break clinging to the one thing he knows to be true: Oliver is the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
Rusty’s parents disagree, and Rusty finds himself homeless for the holidays. But with Oliver’s love and the help of Oliver’s amazing family, Rusty realizes that failing college doesn’t mean he can’t pass real life with flying rainbow colors.
