Non-Binary Authors You Need to Be Reading

Non-Binary Authors

Recently, I noticed that as I looked for more novels by non-binary authors, I really couldn’t find any. I wanted to create a list of non-binary authors that I know, so I sent out a tweet on twitter that asked for name, pronouns, a link to their work, and, if they wanted to, their gender ID. As of right now, there’s about 38 authors on this list, and I still want to add more. Comment if you want to be added, and I hope you all enjoy this list, and possibly find a new favorite author! (I know I’ve found a few I’m very interested in!)

Some may be urban fantasy or magical realism, but I still consider those SF/F. These are just personal favorites that I enjoyed, and I would really appreciate any recommendations you all have.Read More »

He was just using her, though, and because of it, Emmy is sent away from her home, to live with her extended family in Vancouver.

Hey, Pubs! Ever Heard of Sensitivity Readers?

Hey (1)Hey, Pubs! is a new post series that I’m hoping will call attention to flawed practices in the book publishing industry.

With an amazing rise of diverse novels being published, it’s been hard not to notice the amount of harmful ones that come along with the inclusive ones. And, there’s an easy way to get around publishing them…but publishers (and authors?) don’t really seem to care that much.
