Rainbow Connection

Rainbow Connection 1

So, I am over halfway with #RC and feel confident, now, that it will reach it’s publication date. So, it felt the appropriate time to do a cover reveal, and an explantion.

Rainbow Connection is a selection of 7-stories. The idea was first conceived from wanting to write a story without using sexuality labels. I simply wanted to write a love story without having to use the word gay, just like in straight stories where they never mention the word straight. I figured, whilst writing the first instalment of the story that I wanted to take it further, and removed all LGBTQA+ words from all of these stories, so, these stories are about 7 boys, some are in relationships, some aren’t, most of them like boys, they all have a journey to go on, and all attend a the same support group, Rainbow Connection.

Casey Inspiration

new cover

So, the rewrite of Casey is well underway, and if I say so myself, going quite well. This time we’re doing things differently.

First BIG change is the story will be told by Casey’s PoV instead of his boyfriend Mickey’s, that in itself has caused many alterations and research! I am excited by this change, as I love making Casey more 3D then he originally was, it’s interesting to see his family, his therapist, his T injections, everything that happens in the shadows and out of Mickey’s eye (well, sometimes at least).

I’ll add some background to Casey’s character; he is 18 and 5 months old, 4 months ago he was given the confirmation for his bottom surgery (he is very excited about this), he has had to move house to get the surgery, so his whole family moved closer to the hospital, and changed both Casey’s and his little sister Abi’s schools.

You find out a lot of Casey’s story throughout the book, regarding his coming out and his journey, but, you also learn everything first hand, along with his new boyfriend Mickey.

There has been plenty of inspiration for this book. I decided to rewrite it about a month ago, after giving it a reread and feeling I hadn’t done this book the justice it deserved. One of the first people to give me the inspiration to rewrite this book was Jo Banks, a friend and fellow author, he is being so open about his transition on Facebook that it blew me away, and reading about everything, watching the videos and keeping up with his updates, was part of the catalyst that made me think Casey needed to be rewrote.

The second inspiration is a more recent inspiration, that my editor put me onto. Alex Bertie and Jake Edwards, both are YouTubers and both are FTM, I have been watching their videos religiously for almost the last week. They’re both so inspirational in so many ways, whilst also being inspirational in the writing sense, they’re filling me with material to write and I am excited for it all.

I recommend you check these guys out, all are inspirational, whilst all being brave enough to put their transitions online;

Jo Banks – https://www.facebook.com/groups/913215802042774/?ref=ts&fref=ts
Alex Bertie – https://www.youtube.com/user/TheRealJazzBertie
Jake Edwards – https://www.youtube.com/user/JakeFTMagic
Alex + Jake – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLx16Df0NEQb2m_N0u-71UA

I don’t think Casey would be going as well as it is without these guys helping me, without knowing they are, although it is likely one will read this, HI!

I would love to send all 3 of them a completed version of the book when it is released, of course, hoping it is good enough! So, I’ll keep you up-to-date on that!

The transition of Casey

So, another announcement for you guys!

Cover

So, upon review, this story is very, very short, and so shouldn’t be. So, I’m going to do a little rewrite, all of Mickey’s part will stay exactly the same, but, I will also be adding in Casey’s POV.

I may do it as a back-to-back story, rather than alternative PoV, Which may be better than swapping the view, so, stay tuned for more Casey news as it comes!

I was having a chat with a friend.

And it was about Caitlyn Jenner, like most of the population, it was about her recent comment to the lovely Ellen.

Of course, I have to state, I do not agree with her statement, and I think it’s terrible, but what interested me was my friends reaction which was ‘But she’s part of LGBT, she has to accept it’ and I thought, God I wish that was true.

I understand why she thought that, like, I do get it, but sometimes I feel it couldn’t be further than the truth if we tried.

Being asexual, I have witnessed this, other members of the LGBTQA+ community not accepting my sexuality as valid which really sucks, because I accept theirs, but unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. It intrigues, and I think saddens me at the same time, because how can someone who’s gone through being different and coming out, shun someone else for being different and coming out. It’s as hard for both people, whether they are gay, bisexual, trans*, asexual, pansexual, or whatever they may be.

We don’t need to be hating on each other, we need to be supporting, but I also think we’re a long way, away from that.
