If you haven't yet picked up my latest, BIG LOVE, now's the time to do it. It's only .99 cents at Amazon, iTunes, AllRomance, & Dreamspinner Press! Not sure how long the sale will last, so grab a copy today. "Overall, Big Love truly is a story with a big heart...tackles some hefty subjects here: coming out, grief, and the horrible effects of bullying. Yet, with its focus on family and acceptance in all its forms, Big Love is a story of hope, healing, and ultimately embracing the differences that make us each human and worthy of love. Touching, heart-warming, and brave, it is a m/m romance I highly recommend." (Prism Book Alliance) http://www.amazon.com/Big-Love-Rick-R-Reed-ebook/dp/B01D4ZCQ3Q

From my latest: OUT ON THE NET: "It’s simple, really. We are all who we are. Nothing more, nothing less. If you’re religious? Hey, I can relate. I was brought up in the Church (and in my family “Church” means only one: Catholic) and know a little bit about guilt and “sinning in one’s heart.” But in spite of all the dogma I absorbed growing up, I still stick with the credo I saw on a bumper sticker a few days ago—“God loves everyone. No exceptions.”
And if God can love you, you can love yourself." https://www.amazon.com/Out-Net-Love-Story-Blog-ebook/dp/B01F9M21DW
