"There’s something truly disturbing about LGBTQ becoming just another brand and “queer” just another sales tactic. We get that LGBTQ has become a trending topic as of late, with the incredible inroads made for marriage equality and gay rights in general, but corporations desperately grasping onto a trendy keyword doesn’t quite count as representation. If the only time people seek out queer folks is to sell them something, we have a serious problem."

#WeNeedDiverseBooks has been trending on Twitter for a while, and I’m glad to see it.

So I made a website called Kwerey.com to help people find books that represent them: you can search for books with a female main character, a POC as a main character or a bi or lesbian main character…

image

This is specifically about genre fiction (science fiction, fantasy in particular, but also romance, crime fiction etc) by women, because those are the things I realised I’d hardly read any of and really wanted to!

if you’re into those things, please drop by and check it out. it’s designed like a wiki: if you make an account, you can add books and post reviews, or even link to a review on your own website! the more different peoples’ bookshelves there are in the database, the more awesome a resource it’ll be for readers everywhere.

(And if you’re into other genres and you’re interested in doing something similar, feel free to get in touch!)

Thank you.

Reblog if you’d read a book with a bisexual intersex protagonist

lauraroselam:

lauraroselam:

It’s an experiment. 

I’ve written two books with such a protagonist. Pantomime, which just made a top ten title for the  2014 ALA Rainbow list, and the just-released sequel, Shadowplay. The first one is set in a circus and the second on a magician’s stage.

You don’t have to reblog to say you’d read MY books (though that’d be nice and part of the hope of this post is that it’ll spread awareness that my books are out there), just that you WOULD read one.
image

So, the main point of the experiment was to prove to myself that yes, plenty of people would be open to reading my books.

I’ve had a lot of people who seem to think because of the protag, they’re too niche. Evidently book reps thought the blurb had to remain vaguer to appeal to the “mainstream.” And despite strong reviews and awards shortlists, my books haven’t lit the world on fire with sales. In fact, the series is under threat and it’s looking increasingly likely that I’ll have to self-release the third book myself (which means it won’t get in bookstores or libraries, which makes me sad). I’ve worked hard to promote them but there’s only so much I can do.

At first, I thought this experiment failed. It got to 200 notes and then sat there for months. So to see this pick up over the last few days and get lots of notes and spark some discussion warms my heart. I’ve gotten a few really nice messages through my ask box from people who read and connected with Micah Grey and it makes me want to cry happy tears. Thanks, everyone. x
