Fiction for Gay Young Adults
WOW...just wow. Timmy, I hope you continue to write because you have a very powerful voice.
Thanks Denise! I am almost done writing my first novel. <3 Timmy
I look forward to reading your novel. I also look forward to your continuation of Raidean's story.
Unbelievably sad. :( I was really hoping for the happy ending, but you had the courage to write it honestly. Kudos.
His story is not done yet. He will have his happy ending, when he is older and can find a partner to respect and love him. <3 Timmy
So glad I got more tissues today.You Timmy are an Author in the making. You managed to tell a complete story in just a few pages. I have read much longer books with far less detail and even less emotional connection. Hearing this told from Raideans point of view made it much more personal. His thoughts and feelings hurt to read, but at the same time I was left feeling much admiration for him. As for his parents, they need a good shaking, urgh. I really hope in the future you can write more of Raideans life. I would LOVE to see him get a HEA Thank you for sharing with us Timmy <3
Thank you so much Deeze. I do plan to write more of his story. P.S. writing in first person was very difficult. It's hard to keep the tenses right. ;)<3 Timmy
Timmy, I'm nearly at a total loss for words. That is a good thing. That is a great thing! Your words....your story, they are extremely powerful. As a reader I was engaged from the very beginning and as your story unfolded I experienced a wide range of emotions. Nice job pulling me in and keeping me invested in your story. My heart just aches for the boy he was and the young man he's become. Everyone deserves love, respect and acceptance. I was hoping he'd find that and have to admit I shed a few tears that that didn't happen. All's good though--I'm happy to have read in a comment above that we'll get to see more of Raidean. I know this writing stuff is hard, but please, keep writing, you have a gift. I appreciate all the hard work, time, effort and research you put into this. Thank you for trusting us with your story. <3Sandy
Thank you Sandy. I'm glad I wrote something that was so important, and I have my readers engaged. I hope I do as well on his full story. <3 Timmy
This is so well done, Timmy. The ending had me in tears. Sequel? Maybe? Someday? ;) Fantastic work--you should be incredibly proud. I hope you're planning to submit some of your writing to the Harmony Ink Young Author challenge!
It's so awesome to have one of my fave authors say I did well. I'm very giddy now. <3 Timmy
Wooow Timmy! This is amazing! I'm a bit of a mess right now. :'( When do we get the next installment??? It can't end like that! <3
It won't end there. I do however, have a story already started, and I would like to finish it before taking on Raidean's book. <3 Timmy
Hi Timmy!You are the first writer I know who has attacked this issue and I think you did an amazing job of it! I would really like to see more of Raidean-- what happens to him next? Will he find friends who fully know him and accept him because of who he is not in spite of it? You really know how to get into the head of a character and I learned from your story!! Thank you!! Keep writing!!
Thank you Mia. You will never know how much your words mean to me. I both love and respect you very much, and I love that you liked my story. I will answer all your questions in his book, promise! <3 Timmy
This is really an amazing story.
Thank you so much Beth. <3 Timmy
Wow Timmy I am just now ready your beautiful short story and love it! You have a wonderful gift and I hope we get to read more of Raiden's story.
Thanks Michael! I have the second short already written. It will be going through edits soon. It should be posted on the 17th of July. <3 Timmy
Beautiful Timmy. I look forward to reading the next part in Raidean's life. And can't wait to read your first novel. Well done Timmy.
The next part will be out on the 17th of July! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! <3 Timmy
OMG, Timmy!! I can barely see through the tears to write this. Powerful, moving, heart-wrenching... I don't have the words to adequately describe how this made me feel. Please, my dearest Timmy, never, NEVER let anyone tell you that there is something you can't do. You are an amazing young man, and this just further proves it. I will wait with baited breath for the next installment. <3 <3 <3
Awww. It means so much to me that y'all liked Raidean's story. It was sad, but it will get better. Stick with us and we will tell you more of his story. <3 Timmy
