Heart2Heart Anthology: Volume 5 | Various Authors
Release Date: January 31st, 2022
Cover Design: Kelley Fox at Sleepy Fox Studios
Once upon a time, a bunch of authors wondered… what would happen if Heart2Heart, the dating and community app responsible for bringing together couples from all over the world, encouraged people to do something they’d never done before?
#NeverHaveIEver is trending on H2H, and fourteen authors who’ve never before appeared in a Heart2Heart anthology (and one who’s never left) have come together to show how funny, hot, and heartwarming it can be when H2H app users challenge themselves to do something outside of their comfort zones–from singing in public, to skinny dipping, to getting their first real kiss–while they manage to fall in love along the way.
As always, all proceeds from this anthology will benefit LGBTQ+ charities to ensure that love in all its incarnations will be celebrated and protected every single day of the year!
And don’t forget: this volume of the anthology will only be available for 90 days, after which time it will never be offered again.
With Stories by AM Arthur, Daryl Banner, Tal Bauer, SE Harmon, Riley Hart, Kate Hawthorne, Lucy Lennox, EM Lindsey, Louisa Masters, Mia Monroe, Jodi Payne, Spencer Spears, K Webster, Neve Wilder, Alice Winters
All Proceeds Go To Charity
About the Heart2Heart Anthology Series
Since 2018, and across four volumes, the Heart2Heart anthology has donated more than $100,000 USD to LGBTQ+ charities around the world. From large organizations such as Rainbow Railroad and the Trevor Project, to community programs like Kind Space and One-n-Ten, we’re honored to support their work.
A true passion project, Heart2Heart wouldn’t be possible without the incredible efforts and generosity of our support teams:
- Cover design by Kelley Fox at Sleepy Fox Studios
- Beta reading, editing, and proofreading by the team at LesCourt Author Services and other incredible volunteers
- Promotion by Gay Romance Reviews
- The readers who never fail to bring their creativity when offering suggestions to inspire the authors.
And of course, the authors’ time and efforts and the organisational overlord of the project – Leslie Copeland.
As with previous editions of the anthology, we’re honored to be donating our net profits to three deserving charities.
The Volume 5 Charities
🌈 Pflag Canada is a national charitable organization, founded by parents who wished to help themselves and their family members understand and accept their LGBTQ2S children.
The “coming-out” process can be a critical time for families. When the adjustment period is particularly long or painful, relationships can become permanently damaged, resulting in a lifetime of emotional scars.
People cannot always rise above the challenge of accepting themselves or their family members, and the results can be devastating, even fatal.
🌈 The CHEW Project’s vision is to provide frontline support, opportunities for health and wellness, and to help find hope for 2SLGBTQ+ youth and emerging adults facing barriers related to:
Sexual exploitation/sex work
Pride Centre of Edmonton
🌈 The Pride Centre of Edmonton provides a non-judgmental, welcoming space where people of all attractions, identities, and expressions can be themselves, find support, meet new people, and be part of a caring community.
The Centre offers resources, education, volunteer opportunities, counselling, and sensitive and expert information and referrals for those seeking help. The Centre also organizes programs to help improve the social, mental, and physical health of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
These are all great charities and we need to take care of our youth and the next generation. Love is Love. Be safe and kind. No one should have to suffer for who they are or who they love.
