Announcement: Pack of Aces

Hello all!

I do apologize for being absent lately.  Between conventions and my activism, I’ve barely found time to sleep.  But, dear readers, all of you are still in my thoughts.  And I promise to resume chapter commentary very, very soon.  I’ll also be starting work on my fifth novel in July!

Anyhow, I wanted to let all of you know about a new blog I’m part of:  Pack of Aces

It’s a group of five openly asexual speculative fiction writers (Claudie Arseneault, Lyssa Chiavari, Darcie Little Badger, Joel Cornah, and myself) blogging about writing, asexuality, and just whatever else strikes our fancy.  The name comes from the shorthand for asexuality:  many asexuals call themselves “aces.”

Each of us is the ace of something:

Claudie:  Ace of Squids
Lyssa:  Ace of Stars
Darcie:  Ace of Horror
Joel:  Ace of Swords
Myself:  Ace of Shifters

I’ve just written my first two posts.

Please check out the blog and give us a follow.  Sign up for our newsletter, signal boost wherever you can, and recommend us to all your friends.

Thank you, beloved readers 😀

About Lauren Jankowski

Lauren Jankowski, an author from Illinois, has been an avid reader and a genre feminist for most of her life. She holds a degree in Women and Genders Studies from Beloit College. In 2015, she founded “Asexual Artists,” a Tumblr and WordPress site dedicated to highlighting the contributions of asexual identifying individuals to the arts. She has been writing fiction since high school, when she noticed a lack of strong women in the popular genre books. When she’s not writing or researching, she enjoys reading (particularly anything relating to ancient myths) or playing with her pets. She participates in activism for asexual visibility and feminist causes. She enjoys speaking about genre feminism, a topic she is quite passionate about, and hopes to bring more strong heroines to literature, including badass asexual women. Her debut novel was "Sere from the Green," the first volume in her ongoing series "The Shape Shifter Chronicles." The sequels, "Through Storm and Night," "From the Ashes," and "Haunted by the Keres" are also available. All books can be purchased through Amazon, CreateSpace, or Smashwords.
