Every year the authors from Torquere Press choose a GLBTQ charity and donate all the proceeds from the stories they write on a shared theme to the chosen charity. This year, our authors chose NOH8, a non-profit organization who protests bullying, misinformation, and persecution of all kinds. NOH8’s photographic protest is becoming a phenomenon, with duct-taped mouths and logoed cheeks appearing in photos of celebrities and average folks alike. See their efforts here: http://www.noh8campaign.com/
The Charity Sip authors are blogging this weekend about Leather and Love: How Romance Helps Stamp out Hate. Our theme this year was Leather, as Torquere turned nine, and nine is the leather anniversary. Check out how you can buy all the Sips here: http://www.torquerebooks.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=79_111
Please visit the authors linked to the blog hop and comment to let them know you appreciate them giving their time and money to support NOH8. Keep an eye out for contests, giveaways and opportunities to give your input.
In addition to all the great authors and their posts, Torquere will be giving away a $50.00 gift card to one grand prize winner from all the commenters throughout the hop!
Thanks so much to all of our readers and authors for proving that love is by far the most important force in the world.
Though really, leather isn’t all that bad, either!
