When I first took the leap from writing fanfic to writing my own characters and worlds, this weird little thing with the working title Light started sprouting weeds in my brain. Since then, this little book I started because I wanted to see queer characters in more than just the role of the Sassy Gay Friend has undergone complete rewrites until it wasn’t even recognizable anymore. It taught me a ton about characters, about voice, about writing, about writing QUEER CHARACTERS where being queer wasn’t an issue.
It taught me about writing the books I always wanted to read.
I am beyond thrilled to announce that my Gay Firefly with magic debut science fiction novel EMPIRE OF LIGHT will be published by NineStar Press.
I couldn’t be more excited to be working with their team to get Damian, Aris, Raeyn, and the rest of the crew out into the world.
I can’t wait for you all to meet these characters! It’s going to be a BOOK, everyone! Thank you to all who have been along on this wild ride and thank you for supporting queer books everywhere!
Cheers and rainbow explosions. Watch this space for updates, tales from the editing trenches, previews, giveaways and release info!
