The romance community is fighting to protect reproductive freedom with multiple fundraisers. The largest anthology, DISSENT, includes brand new and exclusive works from 150+ romance authors, as well as a paired auction. 100% of proceeds from both the anthology and the auction will be donated to Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brighton Walsh spent a decade as a professional photographer before taking her storytelling in a different direction and reconnecting with her first love—writing. She likes her books how she likes her tea—steamy and satisfying—and adores strong-willed heroines and the protective heroes who fall head over heels for them. Brighton lives in the Midwest with her real-life hero of a husband, her two kids—one who’s already taller than her and one who’s catching up too fast—and her dog who thinks she’s a queen. Her boy-filled house is the setting for dirty socks galore, frequent dance parties (okay, so it’s mostly her, by herself, while her children look on in horror), and more laughter than she thought possible.
Brooke Cumberland is a USA Today bestselling author who wears many hats on any given day. She now co-writes under the USA Today bestselling duo, Kennedy Fox with her literary soul mate, Lyra Parish. She lives in the frozen tundra of Packer Nation with her husband, wild child, and four dogs.
Nicole French is a recovering academic turned romance novelist who has been yearning for happily-ever-afters since she could talk. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, their son, and two cats who still think they are kittens. A low-key fashion addict and major Springsteen fan, she writes romance for people who believe, as she does, that everyone deserves a love worth fighting for.
