Richard Fazio on Saving Face

Guest post by Richard Fazio ...

Inspired by classic short stories like O. Henry's Gift of the Magi and Shirley Jackson's The Lottery, I wanted to come up with my own contemporary parable about love and sacrifice, one that would resonate for LGBT readership. As a result, I wrote Saving Face.

Jasper and Owen have been together for seven years, with an unwavering dedication to one another; however, their life has been anything but ideal. Though Jasper, heir to a fortune, has sufficient assets to support them both, he is physically deformed. Owen is financially dependent on him and protective of his beloved Jasper in every possible way.

As they attempt to make a dignified life together, fate intervenes. At an occult shop, from which Owen purchases an enchanted Solstice gift for Jasper that will change their lives forever.
