Why free?

When Skies Have Fallen is part of 'Love is an Open Road' - a reading/writing event organised by the MM Romance Group on Goodreads. Checking Him Out is part of 'Love's Landscapes' - the 2014 event. Each author claims a prompt posted by a group member and writes a story based on that prompt.

The stories are posted in text form on the MM Romance Group page, which means they are accessible to readers all over the world, including those living in countries where LGBTQ literature is banned. Or, to put it bluntly, there are places in this world where one's sexuality is a death sentence, and making these stories accessible for free is so important (we probably can't begin to imagine) for many living in fear and isolation.

The entire event is run by volunteers, many of whom are professional editors, proofreaders, formatters and cover designers, and yet for this event they give their time for free. It is a labour-intensive but very rewarding cause - as someone who sees boths sides of the process (I both edit and write for the event) I have to take my hat off to the team. There are around 200 stories, and by the time readers see them, they have been edited, formatted, proofread (by five different people, minimum), re-edited, re-formatted and checked for quality assurance.


About When Skies Have Fallen

The second I read Tiffany's prompt I knew I wanted to write this story. No. I needed to write this story, and if another author had pipped me at the post I would still have written it.

I don't want to repeat what I wrote in my first post about this story, in part because I doubt I'd get through explaining again. Suffice to say, it was an emotionally difficult story to research and write. Never too far behind my fictional depiction are the real people and events, massive loss, appalling persecution...and glorious victory.

Arty and Jim get their happily ever after.

I'll leave you with the blurb and my eternal thanks if you are one of my readers. I read every review I find, and I can only hope my words matter to you as much as yours do to me.

Thank you

For many in war-torn 1944, love blossoms in the dance hall, and airman Arty Clarke is no exception. He's a thinker and a dreamer; however, it's not the beautiful, talented dancer in his arms - his best friend Jean - who inspires his dreams. For when his gaze meets that of Technical Sergeant Jim Johnson, Arty dares to imagine a different dance.

Their love is forbidden, by both the armed forces and the law, but with Jean's cunning and support, Arty and Jim try to bridge the distance between them and find true love despite the danger and a life-threatening disaster that could destroy Arty's dreams for good.

Can the pair stand strong together, no matter how many skies have fallen?
