A Very Special Anthology: #Indigent Authors Giving Proceeds to #Charity

Indigent
Authors: Frederick Eugene Feeley Jr,  Leona Windwalker,  Mari Evans, Shaye Evans, M. LeAnne Phoenix
Editor: Kimi D. Saunders
Publisher: CoolDudes Publishing
Pages: 159 pages  



Five authors have joined together to produce stories evoking both loss and hope. Reaching deep within their fiery imaginations, these stories take flight and showcase dreams for a better today and future for LGBT everywhere. The proceeds from the sale of this anthology benefit charities that will help get homeless kids off the streets in four countries: United States, UK. Australia, and South Africa. All of the proceeds go to this charity and none of it comes to the authors nor the publisher.

Contributing Authors: 

Frederick Eugene Feeley Jr’s “Indigent”, after which the anthology takes it’s name, brings the reader to witness an apocalyptic war between the good and evil that rages in one man’s mind. Soon he will know that his problems are insignificant compared to those of others.

Mari Evan’s “Stumbling into Forever”, involves a handsome young vampire who will come to learn that ‘just a sip of blood’ is the difference between love and freezing to death.

Leona Windwalker’s “If Only the World”, takes rejection to another level. A heartbreaking story that is turned on it’s head by the kindness of strangers.

Shaye Evans’ “Rescued”, is a contemporary social statement about the aftermath of a young man’s life after his drink has been spiked at a bar.

M. LeAnne Phoenix’s “Higher Love”, takes us on an almost spiritual journey through the minds of two people who have never met, but have spoken on a telepathic level. When they do come together, that bond is already cemented but there is a price to pay.
