Hegira: #NewRelease #Free #MM #SciFi

Fifty years after the disbandment of the United States of America, the new world order is now ruled by a tyrant. The homosexual gene had been discovered, and all Positives have been declared illegal and ordered off-planet. It didn’t matter where or how, only to get it done at the speediest time possible.
With only hours to spare before the scheduled exodus, a group of people say their last good-byes to those they must leave behind. Last minute preparations are well under way to guarantee their survival in three new worlds. The Hegira Project is ready to launch, heading towards a brighter future.

I wrote this piece for fun, a what if these things happen as I was watching CNN. I won't explain further, only I did this sometime October or November of 2015. When my old publisher put out a call for a sci-fi anthology, I tweaked this little story and submitted sometime June or was it July? I'm no longer certain, but then it didn't get published. The anthology never came about. When I got my rights back to my stories, this was one of them. I hadn't read this since I'd submitted it, and when I finally did, I got scared of what I had written. 

No, this is not horror, not like The Hunt. This one's far scarier for me. And I wrote it.

Reblog: 4.5* Review: “Kilig” by Jo Tannah

Re-blogged from Optimummblog

When I started reading this story, I expected it to be mildly entertaining at best. Let me tell you how wrong I was. I was thinking I would be bombarded with an abundance of culture with a speedy romance of two people force mashed together. This could not have been more wrong. What you get is two strong characters with a compelling story. Louie is a lawyer who works for his cousin and best friend’s company. Then you have Marc who owns a successful chain of stores. Marc’s sister Lisa was a joy to read as well.

One of the things that most enticed me about this book was where it is based. It centers around to big cities in the Philippines. Louie’s company is based in Manila. They send him to work in Bacolod, which is where Marc lives and works. Throughout the book, the author shows the culture and some of the words, phrases, and expressions used. Thankfully there is a glossary in the back of the book. What was an added bonus was getting some facts and a little bit of the island’s history. All this, while maintaining the story.

Also, I loved the pace of the relationship. From the first meeting to the happy conclusion nothing felt rushed or pushed. The timing from their first meeting to their first date was very realistic. It’s what you would expect from two very busy business men. While some steps were faster than others, you’re left with the feeling of it being the natural progression. The time flowed smoothly.

The troubles and concerns matched perfectly to the country’s culture. I found this to be a sweet romance that also taught me about a culture I’m not familiar with. The mannerisms of the society were described so you could fully understand how their community functions. Who was respected and why. Overall, this was a diverse story of love and culture.
