Alright, fellow writers/readers, I need your help. My editors have had to step back due to other life commitments, and I am in need of help!  I write mostly YA high fantasy & urban fantasy, most of my characters are LGBTQ+ and/or POC, and there’s almost always magic involved.  (Similar to: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, A…

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday ever, and this year was no exception.  LOOK AT THIS BOOKSTACK: I also maybe got even more than that?
