I am really excited to tell you all of this:

Indigent is now part of a Charity anthology by the same name, and all proceeds are going to get homeless LGBT kids off the streets in The United States, The United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa. All of this is made possible by Cool Dudes Publishing!

Those charities are:

GALA is a centre for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) culture and education in Africa. Their mission is, first and foremost, to act as a catalyst for the
I thought this was a perfectly balanced short story full of so much thought and feeling I was surprised it wasn't longer when I was done. The author really managed to explain Bobby's backstory, current thoughts and his future in a concise way. The ending was incredibly bittersweet and perfect for Bobby, it was heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. I loved that Bobby could be the hero he was meant to be.

What a nice little gift Feely has given us with this free story.

In the month of October we usually read Halloween-based stories, but this isn't one of these. On top of that the author gave this wonderful short story for free. Read it. It is a well written, beautiful, hopeful, redemptive, joyful and sad story that touched me deeply. It also has a strong philosophical and moral core that encourages you to think about the traps or discouraging cycles that sometimes permeate our lives.

He is sitting in the car during rush hour traffic, waiting at a red traffic light, and needing a new place, a new start, and new faces around him.


And a beggar asks him for a cigarette.

The vehicles behind them are honking.

The beggar is moving between cars as he makes his way to the walk. A car is coming through the intersection at a high rate of speed..........

'He’s going to get hit. And he’s going to die.'

Out of instinct,he puts himself between the beggar and the car.

A young man who's hit bottom commits a selfless act to save a homeless man... and finds himself dropped into the middle of a war between angels and demons. Not my usual fare, but I enjoyed it a lot. It had sort of a holiday feel, though it wasn't a holiday story. But it ends on the same note of joyous revelation you get in some Christmas stories(view spoiler).

Five short, distinctly profound yet fictionalized stories more than represent the charter(s) of the charities they have have been chosen to support. Commonly experienced struggles of LBGT community members across the demographic are highlighted in stories that quite effectively utilize the most popular tropes currently used in the genre.

Wonderful! Absolutely WONDERFUL!!!

My rating is based on the title story and the other three non Leona Windwalker contributions (I write m/m as Leona :P ). I helped edit these stories and was blown away by the variety of stories and the skill of each of of the authors. Each story touched my heart, with Feeley's Indigent grabbing me by the feels from the moment I opened the compilation. Five stories to entertain, all for less than a cup of coffee from Starbucks. All proceeds to charity, helping those truly in need. A win/win all t ...more

Not a romance. Maybe a cautionary tale? Nicely written, but I couldn't really bond with it. Let’s call this one me and not the very, very short story.
