What a busy and terrifying month.
While my book was off to the editor, I went down to Washington D.C. for the women's march. Nothing is more inspiring or powerful than seeing a bunch of people join together in the name of feminism. The march ended up being about more much than just women's issues, but I can assure you, everyone there was a feminist.
While this first week of our new overlord's presidency proved to be the scariest experience I've bore witness to since 9/11, the march proved to be a promise of hope. There are at least four other big marches in the works in the spring alone. Goddess willing, I'll be able to partake in all of them.
I've mentioned before that I don't want to politicize this blog or my stance as an author, but AS an author, it's my duty to put into words the emotions of those I'm surrounded by. If, by now, it hasn't been clear from the tone of my writing, you should know that I'm a feminist. I'm pro-equality, I'm pro-choice, I'm pro-immigration, pro-healthcare for all, pro-science, among other things. If none of these things sound appealing to you, then you probably shouldn't be here... unless you're looking for a way to change your mind.
In happier news, I'm working on getting the cover for my current book. Outside of that, the book itself is finished. I made a promise on my facebook feed that anyone who was interested in an ARC could message me for a copy. I'm more interested in your pleasure than your money. I experience joy when others are happy reading my work. This is why I write.
Another thing I'm working on is getting a newsletter going. I still have a list of emails of those who have subscribed via this website and with noisetrade. And since I have about a month off from my day job, I'll be working on getting those things going. The other thing I'm currently working on is volume 9 of this series. If I'm lucky, and my brain doesn't shut off in the process, the first draft should be finished before I return to work.
For now, enjoy some of the pictures and videos I took during the women's march!
