Pangalactic Sojourners (Inspirational GLBT Romance)

The Pangalactic Sojourners series is a set of five books, each of which centers on a journey of faith and love. Each main character has ties to the GLBTQ community as well as the Christian faith.

These books aren’t published yet. In fact, they’re not even written. I’ve only outlined them, and as of Spring 2012 I’m halfway through the rough draft of The Sojourner’s Guide to the Galaxy, which is the first book.

These aren’t SciFi… but the characters are all SciFi fans! They met through the (fictional) Soujourner program that sends Christian volunteers all over the country to help churches and faith communities in various ways. They bonded over their mutual love of SciFi, particularly the Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books by the late great Douglas Adams, and even started a blog together.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Hitch Hiker’s books, they are:

  • The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
  • The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
  • Life, the Universe, and Everything
  • So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish
  • Mostly Harmless

The Sojourner’s Guide to the Galaxy

Katriel is glad to be heading to Connecticut after spending the hottest months of the year in New Orleans. The church she is assigned to there turns out to be nothing like any other she’s ever visited.

The Chapel at the End of the Universe

Doug is not surprised to find himself in Las Vegas for his next sojourn, but he is surprised that his placement is with a tiny wedding chapel.

Faith, the Universe, and Everything

Jake loves the sojourner’s life. The shorter the placement, the better. The sooner he can move on, the better. That way he doesn’t have to worry about forming attachments, or being judged for his lack of interest in anything romantic.

So Long, and Thanks For All the Loaves and Fishes

Julie is worried when she learns that her sojourn will be in the breadbasket of the US. Explaining why her ten-year-old son calls her “Dad” is always awkward with new people. But it turns out to be the perfect place for her family, as her bakery experience is exactly what the small church needs to help expand their bread-making ministry.

Mostly Harmonious

Perry has been a beloved member of his church choir for years. His love of high heels and elaborate wigs has never been an issue with his congregation. And then a sojourner comes by and knocks his panty-hose off…
