I’d been anticipating two exciting bits of news today, but turns out there are FOUR. I guess we’re having a Florida time of it – when it rains, it just straight up hurricanes, huh?
So instead of posting about each individually, let’s just toss them all into one big update post:
This is the collaborative blog I’ve been writing for over the past year, chronicling not only my own personal debut experience but also thoughts/advice on writing, craft, and other books. I and four other debut authors have been sharing the site, maintaining it, and basically partying nonstop since last August, but our time there is quickly coming to a close. And that means it’s time to select the next class.
So if you’re a female or non-binary author with a debut novel out any time between September 2019 and August 2020 – apply! I highly recommend the experience.
Second: I’ve been a part of the 2019 Debut Authors group since the very beginning and one of my favorite things I’ve done for that group is shout loudly and often about queer debuts on Twitter.
Now, the Bronzeville Bee has given me a spot online to shout about those books more permanently.
The first half of my extensive-but-in-no-way-exhaustive list went up today:
Queer Debuts from January to May 2019
The second half will be up tomorrow, so stay tuned!
It was a lot of fun! Go over and read me talking about fanfic, some of my favorite reads, the perfect gif for The Impossible Contract, and what song kickstarted the plot for The Perfect Assassin. Then keep checking them out all month because they’ll be featuring more interviews with more queer authors. !!
Fourth and last but by no means Least
THE FIRST CHAPTER OF THE IMPOSSIBLE CONTRACT IS UP AT TOR DOT COM
THIS IS NOT A DRILL
THIS IS JUST ME SCREAMING
