While I slept for the nearly two days, fighting fever and other unmentionables, Farm Fresh was named as a runner-up in the Rainbow Awards. I’d already learned of the Honorable Mentions, which thrilled me, so to have Farm Fresh named a runner-up in the Contemporary Gay Romance category blew my mind. It’s not a traditional romance, and I never expected it to be given a nod let alone get so far. When I learned of this through the cloud of my fever- and drug-stupor, I was beyond the moon. I now have three badges to post next to Farm Fresh, and more importantly, $14,000 were donated to LGBT charities.
