If you love a good male/male romance, then this is your lucky day. 🙂 Kindle Alexander is giving away an eBook copy of her latest m/m romance, THE CURRENT BETWEEN US, to one lucky reader here on CABR.
Everyone else, I encourage you to buy this book not only because it’s a great story about a single gay father finding love when he least expected it, but a portion of the sales will be donated to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)
Kindle shares how the loss of her daughter in a drunk driving accident led to her involvement with MADD.
Thank you for inviting me here today!
I’m not gonna lie, when Sasha asked if I was interested in a GP on her site, I gave an automatic YES – OF COURSE – DUH!!!! But I had no idea what I was being asked to do. Once I figured it out, I got immediately nervous and now I’ve sat here for a good hour trying to come up with something to say.
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. Sasha suggested I write something relevant to The Current Between Us.
Certainly, with the pending US Supreme Court ruling on DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), there is more than enough to speak on about the subjects inside my latest book. Gay men raising children, getting married, leading a traditional lifestyle…. But I decided against that.
I know! Instead, I reached deeper into The Current Between Us, starting almost from the beginning. It’s in my dedication. So instead of funny humor, or current events, I’m taking this to unexplainable pain – which for some reason makes perfect sense in my mind.
Five years ago I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. it never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to meet Suzette Pylant. She works for Madd in the Dallas office – Mothers Against Drunk Driving. She’s a victim’s advocate. I would have never gotten through those dark days without her unwavering support and guidance. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. For the first time in my life Madd wasn’t a political force, but a support group like none other. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her. The Current Between Us wouldn’t be sitting at Number 1 on the Amazon best sellers list, Kindle’s name wouldn’t be in print and I never would have healed without her help.
Portions of the sales of The Current Between Us will be donated to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) in both Kindle and Suzette’s name.
I can’t thank Suzette and her team enough for stepping into my world. It takes a special person to come stand beside someone at a time like that. I will love her forever.
I could go on and on about both of them, but I won’t. I am so interested in what you think about this, and The Current Between Us. The best part of writing is talking to the people like yourself who love to read. Message me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you think!
Thank you Sasha for the time! Happy Reading Everyone!
