Guys, I've been literally counting down the days to this announcement, and it's finally here.
My very own Out of the Pocket has been selected as F-BOM's summer read!
I'm so incredibly proud and honored to be included among authors like Intisar Khanani, LJ Cohen, and the club's amazing co-founder, Cecelia Isaac.
What's F-BOM, you ask?
It stands for Feminist Book of the Month. Basically, it's a tri-monthly book club featuring independent female sci-fi and fantasy authors. They particularly specialize in books that challenge the typical, gendered narratives you see over and over again.
In their own words, "The Feminist Book of the Month is more than just a book club. For as little as $5.00 a month members will be actively investing in the future of women in science fiction and fantasy."
So what does this mean, exactly?
It means that if you become an F-BOM member this summer, you'll get the F-BOM special edition of Out of the Pocket. It has an exclusive preface, in which I rant rather spectacularly (if I do say so myself) about the various sexist things publishers have said to me.
You'll also be able to order previous F-BOM special editions at a discount, and I can personally vouch for there being some delicious sci-fi and fantasy titles to choose from.
If you're not up for subscribing, you can just get a free membership to the forums, meet some cool people, and watch me answer questions about writing, gender, and genre tropes all summer long. I promise to bring my signature blend of awkward scintillation!
Can you tell I'm a teensy bit excited about this whole thing?
Hoping to see you there!
