Fairy tales. Prince Charming fights evil, wins the princess, lives happily ever after. Three sons, three wishes, witches, dragons, a quest, and happily ever after.

These stories are part of our cultural fabric. The stories change in retellings to reflect contemporary culture, such as Princess Charming, or heroes and heroines as people of color. In this collection, queer characters take center stage in stories that grew out of questions:

What if the prince falls in love with Cinderella’s gay stepbrother? What if Rumpelstiltskin doesn’t really want the Queen’s child but rather the King himself? What if Beauty and the Beast are two men?

OUT NOW! To the Ends of the Earth by R.G. Hendrickson

Joe is alone in his Brooklyn apartment, which he can’t afford now. The pandemic complicates his plan to get a roommate. If only Michael could have stayed. Joe would join him on the west coast but he likes his job in NYC, in medical billing and coding. He does it online at home, at least for a while, but now he has to go back to the office and work in a plastic tent.

Vegan chef Michael detests meat, cooking it as well as eating it. Due to the restaurant where he works closing, he has to take a job cross country, leaving Joe behind. This happens before the pandemic, so his new job, cooking vegan takeout, becomes all the more necessary to keep. He lives with his sister in LA until he gets on his feet.

Joe and Michael find ways to stay connected over the phone, but it isn’t the same. Should they try to make it work, or just give up now that they’re so far apart? Joe’s friend Cindy shares with him the romance stories she reads, but it takes a real-life love story in the hospital to help him decide.

Frank at Heart by Pat Henshaw

OUT NOW! Frank at Heart by Pat Henshaw

Everything about thirty-five-year-old Stone Acres hardware store owner Frank McCord is old-fashioned — from his bow tie and overalls to the way he happily makes house calls. He dreams of lasting romance, true love, and marriage.

Frank’s ancestors have run the store and been mainstays in the small California town for over a century. While genial Frank upholds tradition and earns the respect of friends and neighbors, he fears he’s too dull and old to attract a husband. Maybe it’s time to break out of his mold.

Then handsome thirty-six-year-old electronic games designer Christopher Darling and his fifteen-year-old son, Henry, come into his life. Christopher has everything Frank could want in a potential partner: charm, kindness, and compatibility. Also, he’s a terrific father to Henry.

When their Stone Acres home turns out to be uninhabitable, Frank offers the Darlings temporary lodging in his ancestral farmhouse, where he and his tenant Emil reside. Since Emil thinks Frank is his, sparks fly.

Suddenly, Frank’s monotonous life promises to explode with love and change him forever.
