Blurb: On September 1, 2011, TJ Klune wrote, “…it’s not about the ending, it’s about the journey…” in a review of Eric Arvin’s Woke Up in a Strange Place. With those words, two men began a journey of love and invited us to ride along. TJ and Eric have shared so much with us: their wonderful books, their smiles, their humor, their lives, and their inspiring devotion to each other. In December of 2013, their journey took a detour when Eric was taken to the emergency room. He survived the surgery to remove a cavernous Hemangioma from his brain stem, but the challenges TJ and Eric face are far from over.
The authors in this anthology donated their talent as a way to support Eric’s continued recovery, to help bring strength to TJ, and to show both of them, just how much love surrounds them. Grand Adventures is a diverse range of stories about the journey of love. We’re going on some grand adventures for a great cause. Thank you for joining us.
One hundred percent of the income from this volume goes directly to TJ and Eric.

Review: As you may know, there are 28 shorts in this anthology. Written by some authors who have met Tj and Eric and others who have not yet met them. The Foreword by S.A. McAuley is a true testament to what great friends Tj and Eric have as well as the Prologue by Brandon Witt. These two parts prepare you for the Grand Adventure you are about to go on.
The authors came together to make this anthology out of love , respect and awe for two brave men who have captured so many hearts by letting us see their love grow through videos and posts. To see them make their way through one of the toughest things possible and still come out smiling in the end. Their love has been truly inspirational and fun to watch grow. The fact that they let us all watch and be a part of their journey together is why we all love them and why this book was put together. To help them was the only thing these wonderful people could do. It was a must, in their minds and they pulled it off brilliantly.
All of the shorts in this book are amazing. The HEA that almost all of these stories have give you just that much more hope that we too, can find what Eric and Tj have with each other.
As you also may know, all the money that is made from the selling of this anthology, the t-shirts and posters sold, will go directly to Tj and Eric to help them with medical costs and renovations needed to Eric and Tj’s new home when he finally gets to go home to Tj and Otter.
So please, do yourself a huge favour and get this book, not only for where the money goes but to have a wonderful experience meeting all of these authors and reading their amazing short stories. They are very gifted people who deserve the recognition for their work and unbelievable generosity!
I will definitely be rereading this book again because I so enjoyed every single story in here. I know you will as well.
