GayRomLit Ebook Giveaway: Anel Viz - Alma's Will

I asked to all the authors joining the GayRomLit convention in Atlanta in October (http://gayromlit.com/grl-authors) a personal favor, a special Ebook Giveaway: everyday I will post 1 book from each author, and among those who will leave a comment, I will draw a winner. Very easy and very fast ;-) I will send a PM to the winner, so remember to not leave anonymous comments!

Today author is Anel Viz: Anel Viz is a rapidly aging gentleman who does not meet other people’s expectations. Although born and raised in New York City, he bears only a superficial resemblance to the characters in Seinfeld. He has lived large chunks of his life in French-speaking countries, where many people refuse to believe he is American because he is not particularly tall or loud and doesn't swagger. For many years, Anel taught French, expository writing, and ethics at a small liberal arts college in the Midwest, where he still lives. He has also worked as a literary translator. Now that he has retired, he looks forward to devoting himself full time to creative writing, a hobby he began half a dozen years ago. He enjoys pushing the envelope in all genres, both in his literary experiments and his treatment of sex. To date he has published 5 novels, 8 novellas, 3 short story collections, 13 separately published stories, including one YA book under the name Zane Silva, and he has almost as many works in progress as publications. He regularly contributes stories to Wilde Oats online magazine. Anel was married for 20 years and has two grown-up sons. He currently lives with his male partner. They've been together — but not living together — for a decade. For relaxation he enjoys concerts (especially classical music), reading, walks in the woods, camping, visiting the doggie park, preparing gourmet meals, and, time and money permitting, travel.

Alma's Will by Anel Viz
Publisher: Silver Publishing (May 18, 2013)
Amazon Kindle: Alma's Will

Livia Redding returns to Macon, Georgia, with her husband and children after her mother's death to settle her estate. She is shocked and offended to hear that the will stipulates that her house be used as a safe home for gay teenagers rejected by their families. Against her husband's better judgment, Liv decides to contest it and stay on in Georgia with their children.

But her mother had a reason for making the bequest: her son, Ronnie, who disappeared a quarter-century ago, after his father threw him out of the house because he was gay.
