Welcome to day 17 of the Rainbow Advent Calendar!
I’m Ana Newfolk and the story I have for you today is my first published story.
Made in New York – A Christmas Short Story is just over 17.5k words long. Just enough to grant opening that packet of cookies you have hiding at the back of the cupboard (or is that just me?)
There’s a blurb for you below but if you can’t wait and want to get straight to the good stuff you can download Made in New York – A Christmas Short Story in your format of choice here.
Isaac’s trip to New York just before Christmas was supposed to serve a single purpose, learn as much as he could about running an LGBT Youth Center.
Max’s love of the Christmas season was only surpassed by his love for the local LGBT Youth Center, and his job as a nurse. One last speech about sexual education for LGBT young people at risk at a conference in the same center was all that separated Max from getting started with his Christmas celebrations.
Isaac didn’t count on needing to be rescued from a fire by a strapping brown-eyed nurse.
Max didn’t count on Christmas coming early in the shape of a curly-haired man with the most bewitching pair of eyes he’d ever seen.
With 48 hours left in New York, Isaac never thought he’d get an offer he just couldn’t resist.
Suddenly, the chill in the air isn’t enough to stoke the fire that now burns in a completely different way to the one that brought Isaac and Max together.
If you have read so far then you’ll be pleased to know that my story isn’t the only one you can read for free this Christmas.

I am joining other authors in the support of LGBT charities. I chose to support two charities, one of them is The Albert Kennedy Trust and the other is the LGBTQ Center in New York.
When I started planning Made in New York I made up an LGBTQ Youth Center in Greenwich Village. After doing some research I realized The Center is real and right where I had imagined it.
And because I live in the UK I decided to also support a UK charity. The Albert Kennedy Trust provide a safe place for LGBTQ young people with three offices in the north of England and London.
