Fave Links Friday 12/6: Gay Weddings, Guide Dog Handling, Disabled People on Covers, and Rosalind Franklin

If you’ve found yourself wondering where all the good writing’s gone, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite links with you on a weekly basis! It might be short fiction, it might be news articles, it might be random blog posts from me and from others!

None of these links are sponsored. I really just liked them!

Don’t forget, you can check out previous weeks’ lists in the Fave Links Friday category!

I strongly encourage you to call your representatives and tell them exactly what you think about current events. You can use Common Cause to find out who your reps are and what they stand for if you aren’t sure where they stand.

This week, I turned Thanksgiving leftovers into a bomb ass pie that I am eating the last of as I type up this blog post. It’s probably the best thing I have literally ever cooked, which is good because I have another tub of it in the freezer for making again later.

I finished my very small Christmas shopping list for the year, which is exciting to me. I think this is the earliest I’ve ever been done, but my list is also a lot shorter this year, given that I live across the country from 90% of the people we know. We also pulled the last of the boxes into the apartment from our storage unit, which means I can make an attempt to put my books on the shelves we have – even though I did not bring several of our shelves from Danville when we moved. We’ll see how that process goes.

Learning Curves ChristmasSpeaking of books! I have a sale going on! In honor of the Christmas focus of this series, Learning Curves is on sale for $0.99 through 12/12! Go grab it for yourself or for a friend who wants a sweet neurodivergent and asexual romance, in either ebook or physical form!

There’s also a sequel that you can grab in the same types of formats that’s even more Christmas-y! I really loved Wrapped Up In You and I hope you will, too. I am hoping to tie up this story with a third novella next year sometime, so get on it while you can!

Other than that, I don’t have a lot to share with you! So let’s get on with the links, shall we?

The pictures from this wedding alone will have you swooning, friends. This was a beautiful wedding and I wish them both all of the happiness in the world.

This beautiful piece by Elsa Sjunneson-Henry is something that really stuck with me. You feel everything she does while she goes through training and it’s beautiful. Check it out.


It Matters That My YA Novel Has a Visibly Disabled Character on the Cover

You all know I’m here for disabled characters and especially ownvoices disabled characters. When they’re on covers, it makes them so much more visible to readers who need them, and Kati Gardner does a great job talking about that in this article for WNDB.

And last but not least, let’s talk about science and the women behind one of the greatest discoveries! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and think y’all will too.
