Second Kira Harp story: The Benefit of Ductwork

January 5, 2012

The second of my Young Adult stories under the pen name Kira Harp is now available at Featherweight Press.

This story, The Benefit of Ductwork, was inspired by a request in the Goodreads Gay Straight Alliance group. The reader wanted a story about a straight kid growing up with gay parents. A story where everyone is doing their best, but that doesn’t make it simple. Ductwork is the result, and the proceeds from this book will go to Lambda Legal. Lambda Legal fights for the rights of GLBTQ and HIV positive individuals in all kinds of arenas, including defending the right of gay and lesbian individuals and couples to foster and adopt children. I hope some of you will enjoy this story.

The Benefit of Ductwork Cover

This is the blurb:

Andy was six when he was adopted by the men he calls Dad and Pops. At seventeen, he has almost escaped his early years and found security in his dads’ loving home. But his neglected early childhood taught Andy that nothing good can be his forever. When his parents decide to foster Kyle, a young gay teenager in need of a place to stay, Andy can’t help wondering if he’s going to lose his dads to the new kid.

Author and Editor royalties from this book will go to Lambda Legal.

Being able to contribute to this line of Helping Hands stories, and having my YA work published, has been very rewarding for me this week.

      I’m so pleased that people are buying them and letting my stories make a contribution. I’ll have to dig back into the YA novel this year too.
