Pay it Forward by Anne Hagan

Today, the wonderful Anne Hagan is here to share a story. Also, Anne is giving away 2 ecopies of Steel City Confidential. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Pay it Forward

The concept of paying it forward, repaying a kindness done for you to someone else, has been around for a while. A US based insurance company garnered national attention in 2014 and 2015 for a series of well done, ‘pay it forward’ commercials. Today, that same insurance company has resorted to the humor of a human interacting with an emu in most of its ads. Perhaps we need that lightheartedness in these crazy times. I wish they’d go back to the pay it forward spots.

My first memorable experience with someone doing me – and eleven others who were with me – a kindness was back in the early ‘90s, right after the first Gulf War. I was in the Ohio Army National Guard then. A dozen of us were traveling to our two weeks of annual training (AT) at Camp Grayling in Michigan. We were in uniform and ordered by our commander to stick together, but we were traveling apart from our unit convoy in ones and twos in our privately owned vehicles (POVs).

Soldiers don’t like to miss meals, and that day was no exception. The troops in the convoy were dining on MREs. Those of us lucky enough to drive ourselves stopped at a Frisch’s Big Boy for ‘chow.’

Frisch’s was busy. We squeezed in around three tables near each other and got served pretty quickly. We laughed and joked and had good time as we ate, but we were respectful of those all around us and kept it clean.

When it was time to go, we called for the bills. That’s when a server told us our bills were paid including tips, over $200.00 worth of food and drinks. We couldn’t even thank the person who’d paid. He was long gone.

Someone stunned me that day, and every time it happened after that. It happened a lot throughout the 1990s and the early 2000’s when I retired. Sometimes I knew who did it and could at least offer a thank you. Sometimes I didn’t.

I retired over fifteen years ago. To this day, when I see a soldier in uniform anywhere getting food, I try to pay for them. It’s one way I try to pay it forward for all of the times someone did it for me.

Have you ever been a little short in the grocery checkout line and had a stranger waiting behind you pay the difference? Yes? I’ve been there too, and I’ve also been the one to pay the overage.

Paying it forward doesn’t have to mean spending money. Has anyone pointed out something to you that saved you a ton of time? Maybe someone has taught you something that seemed to you like it was easy for them. You can pay their kindness forward. We can all do things which might be all new skills for others. Each one, teach one.

I live in a tiny village now. I witness acts of kindness every day. The mail clerk carrying packages to an older person’s car. A woman leaving food for the barn cats that didn’t catch any mice. People sharing from their gardens. Dozens dropping everything to help search for a dog that got away from its owner. Look around you. See what acts of kindness you can do to pay it forward.

STEEL CITY CONFIDENTIAL
Steel City Series: Book 1

by Anne Hagan
Available in Kindle Unlimited

Clients hide things from their lawyers all the time. Pam Wilson makes it an art form.

Pam’s been on the run from the law for years and she was getting away with it. The statute of limitations ran out on most of her crimes. For her spouse Charlotte? Not so much. Though they were aging, they looked forward to enjoying their golden years and, hopefully, forgetting about the past.

Life got complicated when Charlotte became gravely ill, their daughter got pregnant with the child of a married man…a married man someone took shots at from a rare motorcycle Pam happens to own. When the man was shot again and killed in his office at Pitt a couple of weeks later, the police found all signs pointing to Pam.

Rochelle ‘Ro’ Rabinowitz, a second-generation Pittsburgh lawyer, and her little firm take on Pam’s case pro-bono. Ro thinks it’s a slam dunk for the defense and hands the case off to her new associate and – she hopes – her future partner in the firm, Dominique, to get her feet wet in a courtroom. Clients are never completely honest with their lawyers and Ro and Dominque soon learn this one is no exception.

Slam dunk? More like a pipe dream…

Roadside Assistance by Carolyn Elizabeth

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Carolyn Elizabeth is here to share a story. Also, Carolyn is giving away 1 ecopy of Zero Chill. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Carolyn.

Roadside Assistance

In 1999 I was in my mid-twenties, and through a series of terrible decisions, I lost my car, license, and job. It was a shitty job, but the only one I had. I took an even worse job for minimum wage, but which was closer to my apartment.

I caught the bus to work in the morning, but the bus schedule in the afternoon didn’t work for me for reasons I can’t recall. I walked or hitchhiked home. One day a car stopped and I found myself peering through the passenger window at a bald, goateed guy I recognized but didn’t know. His name was John and we both played with Seacoast Rugby Club and the men and women occasionally practiced together.

A mutual love of rugby pretty much immediately makes you family and while he gave me a lift home, I told him about my work situation and probably all sorts of other things about my misspent twenties.

It was the summertime and the club rugby 7’s schedule was in full swing. One Saturday afternoon we sat behind the try zone drinking beers, nursing our wounds, and watching the finals of a tournament we had long since been eliminated from. John came over and sat down with me and told me about his wife, Wendy. She worked for a young, fun, cutting-edge networking company and they were hiring. He handed me Wendy’s business card and encouraged me to call.

I started working for the company in August, making twice as much money as I had been and I received a raise, bonus, and promotion within six months. I worked for that company for two years and had some of the best times of my life.

I got laid off on my two-year anniversary—along with a lot of other folks—and a few years after that the company was bought out entirely. I had long since moved away and moved on as had John and Wendy and their family.

This photo is from my family vacation to Orlando four years ago. John and his family lived nearby and we met up in Cocoa Beach for an afternoon. It was the first time we’d seen each other in a very, very long time. He met my wife and gave my kids each a rugby ball from the team he coached, and Wendy joined us for lunch. I expect I will see them again when the GCLS conference rolls around to Orlando in 2024. I hope so.

John and I weren’t friends before that day on the road and I never would have known if he had just driven on by, but he chose to stop. I’m sure I would have managed some other way if he hadn’t ever given me Wendy’s business card, but he did and she hired me—and was a total boss boss. It was simply an act of kindness and the gift of their friendship.

ZERO CHILL

by Carolyn Elizabeth

Corey Curtis and Thayer Reynolds are more than happy to put the days of their turbulent courtship behind them. With the holidays upon them, they’re looking forward to celebrating with friends and family, intimate moments alone, and festive surprises.

And in Corey’s world, nothing says Christmas quite like a frozen body. One that Corey must defrost in order to close out her next case. The discovery of the deceased’s possible connection to Thayer inflames the still healing wounds of their recent trauma and sends them both reeling back into a world of uncertainty and turmoil.

With her best friend in tow and the police not far behind, Corey ends up in the unlikeliest of places―a church. Along the way hate and violence erupt while corruption abounds. But from the ashes new relationships are kindled, and even the darkest moments are no match for Corey and Thayer’s love.

Zero Chill is the highly anticipated sequel to Dirt Nap and Gallows Humor.

The Mathematics of Kindness by Barbara Ann Wright

The Mathematics of Kindness

I’m lucky enough to have been on the receiving end of a lot of kindness in my life. Some has been in the form of deeds. Other times, I’ve blushed through kind words. Some could be seen as favors, and still others have been granted in return for something I did. And while it’s true that the large acts of kindness stand out in my memory, I’d like to talk about the small ones that add up to truly epic friendships.

If you read the acknowledgments in my books, you’ll see that I always thank my writing groups and fellow writers. I usually reference the ways in which they’ve made my work better—so many ways—but we’re also very good friends, and there isn’t enough space on one page to list all the ways they’ve helped me. They’ve carried boxes through moves, tidied my house when my rheumatoid arthritis kept me from functioning, taken out my garbage, cat-sat for me, driven me to and from surgery, done car maintenance, put me up for the night, changed lightbulbs, bought my books, and lifted me up when I’ve been down.

And that’s just off the top of my head.

All of this and more adds up to a group of beautiful souls whom I will go to whenever they call. I would say that I could never hope to repay their many kindnesses, but they’d never ask for payment. We’ve shown through words and deeds that we love one another and would do something foolhardy like fight bears for each other if necessary. (Please, universe, don’t ever make that necessary.) My friends are my people, so maybe family would be the sum if you made kindness into a mathematical equation.

So here’s to those who think of others every day, who are always ready with a kind word or who are more than willing to do a kind deed. You are part of something larger than yourself, part of a family. Someone has seen your kindness and appreciated it and adopted you as one of their people. They’d fight a freakin’ bear for you, and they know you’d do the same for them.

Little kindnesses add up.

THE NOBLE AND THE NIGHTINGALE

The Sisters of Sarras: Book 1

by Barbara Ann Wright

Adella del Amanecer is from a noble family whose pride comes from dedication to the kingdom of Sarras. She works long hours as a diplomat and barely has time for her sisters, let alone romance, a fact that makes her nights feel longer than her days, especially when she thinks about the lovely bard on the corner.

As an ex-spy for the Firellian Empire, Bridget Leir has fled from crises and corruption until settling in Sarras, where she can hide as a bard. When a chance meeting with a beautiful diplomat leads to romance, Bridget’s new life feels filled with promise, until Sarras investigates Firellian rumblings of war. If the truth comes out, the Sarrasians—and Adella—will never believe Bridget’s spying days are done, and worse—Adella will be accused of sleeping with the enemy. It’ll be the gallows for them both.

Can Maya overcome her fear of what her family might think of her? And how will Quinn’s parents, who used to be Maya’s next-door neighbors, react to their daughter’s unconventional love affair?

Best-selling lesbian romance author Harper Bliss brings you a second-chance age-gap story about not being afraid of living life on your own terms.

 

YOU AGAIN

by Aurora Rey

Sometimes, a second chance comes when you least expect it.

Kate Cormier thought she’d love Sutton Guidry forever. But when one bad decision ended things, she moved on, building a life for herself and her daughter. These days, she hardly thinks about all those dreams. Until Sutton shows up, acting like she never left and looking more gorgeous than ever.

Sutton has spent a decade avoiding her hometown, memories of first love, and the girl who broke her heart. She’s built a career, but the life that goes with it leaves her uninspired. When her father needs surgery, she decides coming home to help him recover is a chance to face those ghosts once and for all. But with so many pieces of her life still there—including Kate—it’s hard not to imagine trying again. Can she find a way to put them together without falling apart all over again?

 

SCULPTING HER HEART

by Annette Mori

Zari Woods has achieved almost everything she set out to accomplish, despite overwhelming challenges. Except for one crucial goal—a girlfriend. On the surface, it appears as if she has everything, fame, money, a supportive best friend, and loving parents; but, to a person on the neurodiverse spectrum, a loving woman is an elusive and magical creature. When Frankie moves into her neighborhood, Zari starts a quest to climb that final mountain. Frankie is beautiful, kind, patient, and seems to genuinely enjoy spending time with Zari despite her quirks. Unfortunately, Frankie already has a girlfriend. Sort of. It’s complicated.

Frankie can’t believe she agreed to an open relationship with her girlfriend, Sam. That was the last thing she wanted. Her morals do not align with Sam’s. At all. Her growing attraction to Zari challenges Frankie’s perspective on her current relationship and her last-gasp effort to repair the ever-increasing divide. Will Frankie make the hard decision to let go of something clearly not working for a chance at real love and choose to bring Zari her heart’s desire?

When new pharmaceutical rep Zoe Blake walks into his office, though, he’s smitten, and he needs Morgan more than ever.

Zoe is beautiful and a little mysterious and doesn’t seem terribly interested in Perry. Morgan decides she’ll need to get to know Zoe before she plays matchmaker.

Or for herself?

A DOG NAMED BELLA

by Bel Blackwood

Avialable in Kindle Unlimited

One ice queen who likes solitude.
One firebrand crashing into her life.
One snowstorm trapping them together.

Ambitious journalist Amy Kelly has her big break at her fingertips. She’s lined up an interview with Morgan Leithe—THE Morgan Leithe, the self-made billionaire who mysteriously vanished from the public eye three years ago. Amy only has to travel to the tiny New Zealand town Morgan’s hiding in, nab that interview, and have it published before her big performance review. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am—that promotion is basically in the bag.

But Amy didn’t plan for the bone-chilling blizzard sweeping through the sleepy little town, and she definitely didn’t plan to have to wait out a snowstorm with a woman whose piercing blue eyes seem to see right through her…

Betrayed by those closest to her, brilliant philanthropist Morgan Leithe has made a new life for herself far away from the glitz and glamour. She’ll keep everyone at arm’s length to make sure that no-one can hurt her again. She’s sworn off romance. All that she needs in life is a good book, her dogs by her side, and solitude. Life in her cosy mountain cottage is peaceful and quiet, just the way she wants it.

But now a tenacious younger woman with sparkling eyes is awakening something in her that she’s tried her hardest to bury.

Four days. That’s how long she’ll have to wait before the snowstorm lifts and the stranger with the heart-stopping smile can leave for good.

Four days of just the two of them, a crackling fire, and the wild New Zealand scenery around them.

She can keep this professional, right?

One woman’s hiding place is another woman’s home.

After becoming an inadvertent viral sensation—and losing her job and her girlfriend as a result—Phoebe Shaw retreats to Vermont. Renovating her late grandmother’s cabin into a vacation rental seems like the perfect way to lie low for a while. But the last person she expects to encounter on the property is the woman whose kiss was her teenage sexual awakening . . . and whom she’s never quite forgotten.

Taylor Donovan has been hiking on the trails behind the Shaw family’s cabin her whole life. As children, Taylor and Phoebe were best friends before sharing a secret summer romance when they were sixteen, which left Taylor brokenhearted when Phoebe fled at the end of the summer. Now the property has become Taylor’s home away from home, and she wants nothing more than to convince the Shaws to sell it to her. But Phoebe’s return puts a crimp in those plans–and brings back old feelings she thought she’d overcome.

Of all the things Phoebe regrets, leaving Taylor is at the top of the list, but Taylor is determined to protect her heart. Yet the pull between them is stronger than ever. This time around, will love stay hidden . . . or finally see the light of day?

THE IMPERATIVE OF DESIRE

Passing Rites: Book 1

by Elena Graf

Available in Kindle Unlimited

In the waning years of Queen Victoria’s reign, a brilliant daughter is born to an aristocratic, military family in Prussia. A quirk of inheritance law allows Margarethe von Stahle to inherit her family’s titles. Her elders collaborate to educate her to take on her future duties, which include administering her family estates and supporting an order of nuns.

Margarethe’s curiosity and precocity delight and perplex her teachers as they try to mold her. Her father trains her with his military cadets. A retired opera singer teaches her how to sing. Her grandaunt, headmistress of the convent school, educates her in philosophy and classics. At an early age, Margarethe heads to Oxford to follow in her father’s footsteps. Gifted with both musical and intellectual talents, she must choose between singing and service. Raised to take her duty and noblesse oblige seriously, she decides to study medicine and becomes one of the few female surgeons in 1920s Germany.

Because she needs heirs to her titles, Margarethe reluctantly marries, but that doesn’t prevent her from finding solace in the arms of women. She trains under the best surgeons in Germany and England and rises to prominence as London’s infamous “Lady Doctor.” Finally, duty requires her to return to her homeland and take the reins of the family fortunes.

The Imperative of Desire, the first volume in The Passing Rites Series, is a coming-of-age story that takes a young woman from La Belle Époque, through a world war, a revolution that outlawed the German nobility, the roaring twenties, to the decadent demimonde of Weimar Berlin.

Knight Protector: Book 5

by Rachel Ford

The war is over. The chaos is just beginning.

The North won, but peace is a distant dream. Youngling dragons plague the countryside. On the border to No Man’s Land, Knight Protector Ana Derel negotiates a tenuous peace between the slave warriors turned refugees, for whom only a death sentence waits at home, and the local populace, which wants no part in feeding or aiding their former foes. Far to the North, Knight Protector Brynja Evansdatter struggles with the ambitions and mistrust of the elven mages she freed from captivity. They’ve sworn off the Southern king who shackled them, but they’re not ready to swear fealty to the Northern queen.

And at the heart of all the chaos, with the power to command the races of dragons and destroy whole armies of men, are the most powerful weapons ever devised by men or elves: first runes.

Whoever controls them, controls the fate of the known world. Derel and Evensdatter fought side-by-side in the war. Now, they will need more than blades to bring peace.

What We Permit We Promote by Annette Mori

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Annette Mori is here to share a story. Also, Annette is giving away 1 ecopy of Sculpting her Heart. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Annette.

What We Permit We Promote

It would be so easy to focus on the political climate—a topic I often write about because some let the cruelty genie out of the bottle. Lately, not only is cruelty not challenged, but it is worn as a badge of honor. When those holding political office role-model bullying and cry about cancel culture when called out on their destructive behavior, millions of people follow suit. Being locked inside our homes has not helped. Many have always hidden behind their computers to perpetuate cruel rhetoric, but not it is spilling out in the open in alarming frequency. I could write a year’s worth of blogs on this, but one last thing I’d like to say before moving on. What we permit, we promote. Let’s all try to put the cruelty genie back in the bottle and uncork the kindness genie.

Now onto the other kindness topic I’d like to discuss today. Lately I’ve been wondering whatever happened to the lessons I learned from my mother about kindness? Things like if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all? My mother was a wonderful gracious woman, who like every other human being wasn’t perfect. She perfected the art of the “little white lie.” I suppose this was a product of her upbringing, and in her mind being honest might mean being unkind.

I have a passion for writing about characters with various disabilities, which is why the appalling lack of accountability to those who make fun of persons with disabilities has affected me so much. My latest book, Sculpting her Heart, features a young woman on the neurodiverse spectrum. Zari has autism, and her brutal honesty is so opposite of what my mother taught. However, bluntness is not the same as being unkind. Zari has had to learn some hard lessons about honesty. I’d like to share a passage to give everyone a little taste of her struggles.

“Do you think it’s unkind to be blunt? Jillian says that sometimes a person has to lie because being honest would hurt too much. Do you think she’s right?”

“That’s a tough one. There is the rule that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. I suppose I adhere to that rule most of the time.”

“I don’t always know when I’m hurting someone with my honesty. I have learned some rules about being too blunt. Jillian says I should never tell a woman she doesn’t look good in an outfit, or that I don’t like her new haircut. Women are also particularly sensitive about weight. It’s mostly about being out of proportion, except for their breasts. But even if you comment on how large their breasts are, and you like them, you still have to be careful about how you say it and to whom you say it. Giving compliments is a subtlety I’m still working on.”

“Aren’t we all?”

Of all the character’s I’ve written, I believe Zari is one of my favorite because she is the epitome of kind and loving, she just shows that kindness in her own unique way. If we are to broaden our definition of kindness, intent and action are important to consider. Not only should we pay attention to our words, but we must also consider our actions.

Fighting for more kindness in this world is a noble cause—one that I hope many will take up. Rather than sitting on our asses, shaking our heads, muttering at the TV, let’s all stand up and fight. Action speaks louder than words. Never forget what we permit we promote. It will take everyone to put that cruelty genie back in his bottle.

SCULPTING HER HEART

by Annette Mori

Zari Woods has achieved almost everything she set out to accomplish, despite overwhelming challenges. Except for one crucial goal—a girlfriend. On the surface, it appears as if she has everything, fame, money, a supportive best friend, and loving parents; but, to a person on the neurodiverse spectrum, a loving woman is an elusive and magical creature. When Frankie moves into her neighborhood, Zari starts a quest to climb that final mountain. Frankie is beautiful, kind, patient, and seems to genuinely enjoy spending time with Zari despite her quirks. Unfortunately, Frankie already has a girlfriend. Sort of. It’s complicated.

Frankie can’t believe she agreed to an open relationship with her girlfriend, Sam. That was the last thing she wanted. Her morals do not align with Sam’s. At all. Her growing attraction to Zari challenges Frankie’s perspective on her current relationship and her last-gasp effort to repair the ever-increasing divide. Will Frankie make the hard decision to let go of something clearly not working for a chance at real love and choose to bring Zari her heart’s desire?

MEET THE AUTHOR

Annette is an award-winning author, published by Affinity Rainbow Publications, who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her wife and their five furry kids. With twenty published novels, three Lesfic Bard Awards, and one Goldie Award for her fourth novel, Locked Inside, she finally feels like a real author. Annette is as much a reader as a writer and always looking for the next lesfic novel to cue up. She came up with the One Fan at a Time tagline because it rolled off the tongue much better than One Reader at a Time. After pondering who she was at her core, it was all about connecting to each reader on a personal level. She would be the first to admit she doesn’t do well with the masses. If someone picks up her book and it touches them she believes she has achieved what she wants with her writing by reaching each reader. It is who she is at her core.

Supernaturally Kind by K.L. Noone

Supernaturally Kind

I began writing fiction again, more seriously, because of fandom and community and an act of kindness. I’d been a writer since I was about five years old, when I wrote a story about a unicorn and the Tooth Fairy—but I’d slowly stopped, or mostly, throughout high school and college, in part for reasons of time, in part because I was writing more academic analysis and scholarly papers, and my brain had less room for the joy of creative fiction.

But I loved fandom, and fan works, as an outlet. I read—no, devoured—commentaries and head-canons and fanfic, because it all came from this place of shared love for this show, these characters, this world and this story that drew us together and made us feel. (All right, I’ll admit it: Supernatural. This would’ve been around season four, if you’re wondering.)

I did a lot of lurking. I was (and am!) very shy and socially anxious, and while I might hesitantly comment on someone’s story or post, it had never occurred to me that I could write something that other people would want to read.

I had ideas, though. In my head. Shining. Little golden threads of dialogue, plot, characters interacting. All right there and present, and glorious—at least to me.

But I didn’t feel like my versions’d be worth it, when there were so many wondrous and much-treasured creators and creations out there already. After all, who was I?

But, one day, one of the Big Name Fans in the fandom (someone with a following, and, more importantly, someone who was generally nice: no drama, frequent and happy replies to comments, organizing of fan events and fests that welcomed new contributors) wrote about a plot bunny she’d had, or really just an idea: “I don’t have time to write it, but I’d love it if someone wrote this, so I could read it…”

I had that idea. I’d had that exact idea.

I knew how I’d do it. I knew the dialogue, the shape of it, the taste of it.

So I wrote it. White-hot, wildly fast, in a couple of hours. Maybe a thousand words.

And I put it in a comment on her post (this was in the days of LiveJournal and comment fic, mind you), and I gave a very nervous babbling disclaimer at the beginning: “You said you might like this, I had that idea too, I’ve never really written before, but I love all your stories, thank you for them, and I hope this is at least okay and at least sort of what you wanted!!!”

And she read it. And commented.

Almost immediately. With marvelous, generous, thoughtful comments: notes about lines she’d liked, compliments about my character voices, keysmash enthusiasm about how thrilled she was about what I did with this idea. She told me she’d love to read more of my fic for these characters.

She didn’t have to do any of that, and certainly not for me. She was a busy, well-known, Big Name Person in the fandom. She was running fests and organizing people. No one would’ve faulted her for not replying, or for a quick “Oh thank you!” reply, in response to this random bashful (and babbling!) unknown commenter.

But she looked at this little spontaneous story, by someone she had no reason to know, and she was kind.

More than kind: encouraging. Welcoming. Detailed in comments. Genuinely excited.

She made me think I could maybe write stories other people would want to read, and maybe I had something to give to the community I loved, with my words.

I wrote more. And she did read those stories, as she promised. So did other people, in part because of her enthusiasm and support.

So I wrote a lot. And I still write a lot. I’ve wandered through other fandoms since then, I like to think my writing’s gotten better or at least smoother (I do still love my long sentences, though) and I’ve become a published and occasionally bestselling author of original romance…

…because that community and that encouragement made me think that maybe I could, that maybe I was a writer, that maybe I could submit this original novel to a publisher, and maybe it could be true.

And that all happened because someone well-known, someone who did not need to do this, chose to be kind to a shy and awkward brand-new writer and fellow fan. Because that person took the time to say generous things, to welcome me in, to look at something I’d made and get excited about it.

Might I have shared my writing anyway, later on? Possibly. Probably, eventually; I like to think I would’ve. The stories were in my head, and getting noisier. It might’ve taken much longer, or not much longer, or something in between.

But the point is: I did it, I shared my words and myself, then. That was what happened, and that will always be what happened: part of the tale.

Why did I, at that particular moment, at that poised turning-point in my own author’s narrative, decide that maybe I could—maybe I should—write the next story in my head, and then the next? Why did I think I might have something to give, to give back, to create and share with others?

Because she was kind.
