Happy Saturday! I’m in a festive mood, getting ready for this weekend’s Christmas Gala concerts. (For those not in the know, I’m a violinist with a local orchestra.)
I was surprised and thrilled to find out my novel Walking by Faith was a runner-up for Best Gay Contemporary General Fiction & Humor in the Rainbow Awards. Congratulations to all the winners, runners-up, and finalists.
This week’s snippet follows directly from the previous one. A number of people were concerned that someone had volunteered Micah for something without his consent. This should clear it up.
“Oh! Right,” Micah said. “My sister-in-law”—his throat pinched painfully—“thought I might be interested. I, uh, asked her if she knew of something going on around town where I could volunteer.”
“That’s great! We could definitely use all the help we can get. Mainly our purpose is to provide general skills training, such as basic household and auto maintenance, cooking, sewing, and the like. I did talk to the other leader, and he seemed to think you’d still be able to teach a class or two, depending on the subject.”
