A Matter of Choice -- Just Released

CLAYTON, N.C., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- P.D. Publishing announced today the release of A Matter of Choice, a novel by G. Carlos Smith that explores the lives of two young men as they find their way during unforgiving but changing times. In a moving but delightful love story, the novel considers the tragic effects of laws like Proposition 8 while offering a new hope.

Like thousands of others, Smith and his spouse were married following the landmark California Supreme Court decision that recognized the right of same-sex couples to marry. "We can't help but wonder why our desire to make a legally binding commitment to each other and our children remains so objectionable to so many," Smith said. "But we look forward to a day when laws that stigmatize and discriminate are repealed, and we all will be able to love and marry the person of our choice."

"We're particularly pleased to publish this touching romance novel," said Linda Daniel, President of P.D. Publishing. "In this debut work Smith does a masterful job challenging our views while warming our hearts."
