Just discovered and I couldn't be happier. What a tremendous collection of brief book blurbs for teens broken down by marginalized groups, further resources to find quality lit, and the layout is smooth!

95% of the academic work done on historical trans & nonbinary folks (like the Chevalier d'Eon, Giovanni Bordoni/Vizzani, even likely trans-identified women in the 18thc molly trials) has been done by cis men--trans writers need more support to write histories.

Disabled love triangles! Disabled vampires! Disabled historical fictions! Disabled detectives! Disabled musicals! Disabled rom coms! Disabled marriages! Disabled parents! Literally everything that’s been done hasn’t been done with disabled characters.

in early 2018 I decided all my future MCs will be , be it fat/bi/ autistic, & I feel so much better about my writing & me because of it. All 3 are very underrepresented, and what little rep I see is often misinformed/rests on cliché. Be the change you want to see!

I think there’s a big focus on in YA, and it needs to carry onto NA and adult. Going from a disabled kid to a disabled adult is terrifying, and there should be more books exploring the transition. Disabled adults deserve to see themselves in books too!

See, I think that’s the reason it’s so hard. There’s no *open* demand for disabled characters. I’m sure some agents are willing to look at books like mine, but it doesn’t seem like there’s any active, visual, support for disabled authors, which hurts.

I am bursting with anticipation to read these preordered next-in-a-series, debuts, companion stories and new books by great authors. Just had a big yakety-yak with my daughter about why we are looking forward to every single one of these children’s novels.

Hey all you were so great at sending me SFF bloggers and I thank you! I was wondering if anyone has a list of Middle Eastern bloggers or want to point some my way? Looking to do a spotlight tour and want to feature an author! Please RT

Not saying YA is never mislabeled, but the self-congratulatory tendency of some YA readers to discount the plethora of books marketed as "adult" which feature LGBT and POC content, many of it , is IMO super harmful. As such, a few newish adult titles I personally loved:

Am I careful of what I promote? Yes? Do I make sure I read ? Yes. But I'm tired of living in fear that b/c I like X, Y, and Z people will write me off. I AM conscious of what I read and promote, but sometimes to the point I don't even talk about books at all. (End)

Inspired by to respond. I'd love to publish my Portuguese-American stories for MG and YA. From recent research, I think they would be the only traditionally published Luso-American stories in the US at this time. I want my kids to see themselves in books

Limited time open submission call for unagented submissions at Avon. authors are "highly encouraged" to submit but all voices are welcome. They are looking to acquire multiple projects for print publication.

Attn. publishing: my disabled fencer YA novel? The one with dueling in ballgowns and found families? It would be the 1st traditionally pubbed YA novel with a POTSie MC... even though hundreds of thousands of Americans have it. Most of them young women.
