It’s a YA antho!

ITSNOTOURFAULT_FBThumbThe anthology is out! Whohoooooo! I’m so excited to share this little story with the world. I love Jordan and Nay, and I hope you will too.

For the next week, you can enter the Rafflecopter as many times as you want, and the prize is a signed paperback of the anthology! I’ll ship worldwide, and if you want me to wait until after GRNW, I’ll see if I can get Andrea Speed to sign it too!

 If you’re not into Raflecopter, you can head over to The Novel Approach, where I’m talking about the origins of the story and giving away another copy!


First Time for Everything

A Harmony Ink Press Young Adult Title

There’s nothing like the first time. Whether it’s a first crush, first date, first kiss, or finding tolerance and approval for the first time, for gay, lesbian, bi, and trans teens—or those still exploring and discovering their sexuality and identity—these important firsts can shape the rest of their lives. Gathering the courage to come out to their families, admit their feelings to a friend, or go to school presenting as the people they really are can be a struggle. But with the support of their allies and their own inner strength, the brave young people in these stories take the first steps toward happiness and living on their own terms. From sweet stories of newly discovered love, humorous accounts of awkward dinners and dances, to fights for acceptance and even survival, the teens in this anthology must face new challenges and rise to meet them. These are the first times they’ll never forget.

It’s Not Our Fault by Charli Green

Jordan Pond graduated from high school a year early. He didn’t know he’d have three weeks to fill before his first day of classes at the community college. He also didn’t know that during those seemingly endless weeks he’d have an awkward painful experience at Powell’s City of Books that might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to him, even if it causes him to question everything he thought he knew about himself.

Buy the anthology from Amazon or Dreamspinner Press.

You can find snippets of this story on the blog run by Charli Green, the part of me that refuses to grow up:

  1. Can you for the chance to win this anthology, Charley:)
    I usually read anthologies because they give me the chance to read stories from different authors and reading their stuff, makes me really look inside their head and heart.
    YA anthology can really help young folks to see that they’re not alone…that they can relate to those stories.
