A Day Long Awaited

Written by Ken Murphy

On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 that refusing to grant licenses violates the Constitution, requiring all 50 States to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Within minutes of the press release, Emma Foulkes and Petrina Bloodworth of Atlanta received the first marriage license for a gay couple in Fulton County (Georgia). I wish them many more years of happiness and wedded bliss. Shortly after the Supreme Court’s ruling was announced, President Obama gave a briefing in which he stated “When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free.” He went on to say “There is so much more work to be done to extend the full promise of America to every American. But today, we can say in no uncertain terms that we’ve made our union a little more perfect.”

On a personal note; I shed a few tears of joy as I watched the coverage on CNN this morning. Happy that, the union I have shared with my husband for almost 21 years is finally legal in our home state. It’s kind of funny, when Andy and I got married last August, people asked me if I felt different after we were married. I have said that I did feel different, but it was difficult to express exactly how it felt different into words. After all, our license was merely a piece of paper, a document. A document our state did not recognize. Today all that changed. I do feel differently. Today, my commitment to my husband is legal in Georgia and throughout these United States.

Greetings Friends, Fans, and Casual Passers By:
This was a very exciting week for me as I signed the contract for Sharing Heart, the sequel to Stubborn Heart. I am overjoyed that I’ll have the opportunity to share a little more of Trevor’s and Mark’s story with you. After all, “Happily Ever After” begins with “I do.”
To celebrate, I’d like to give away ten e-book copies of Stubborn Heart. I hope… when you read their story, you’ll come love those boys as much as I do. You know, nothing is really free. I have to make you work for it. But the folks who know me will tell you I’m pretty easy (get your mind out of the gutter), so I’m not going to make you work that hard.
If you’d like a chance to win a copy (e-book) of Stubborn Heart, here’s what you have to do:
1. Send me an email at kenmurphy851@att.net.      Please write “Contest Entry” in the subject line.
2. In your email, tell me the name of your favorite romantic  character. This character can be from any story, book, movie, or whatever. Hey, who am I to say where you found your favorite. Next I want you to tell me why he (or she) is your favorite. What characteristics of that person captured your heart?
The contest ends Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 4:00 PM (EST) and on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 I’ll notify the winners via email and tell you how to claim your e-book copy of Stubborn Heart.
If I really like your entry, I may share it on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads) or on my website in blog postings. Please indicate in your email if you’d prefer I didn’t cite your name. Also, I may post the names of the winner. in the same forums. Again, tell me if you’d rather I not mention you specifically. So get those thinking caps on, I’m eager to read your responses.
Hugs,
Ken
