I wrote a book. I started it six years ago and just self-published it. Not a big deal, it happens all the time, I know. I wrote it because at the time i started, I wasn't seeing much diversity in the realm of sci-fi/speculative/fantasy etc outside of Butler (whose work I find fantastic).
I decided to try and write something, ostensibly for my daughter so she would know there were books out there for people who look like her. The book is not a kids book - not at all - there's sex and violence and some doom and gloom. Over the past few years, I've found a lot more, but I'd already started the project and wanted to see it through, even though it was so far outside of my own perspective. I am a huge proponent of diversity, and like infusing it in every aspect of my life and work.
I'm glad that I came across this site, it gives me a lot more resources.
Here's a link to the book - I probably got a helluva lot wrong.
