I’m in an Anthology!

I have been waiting for AGES to announce this!

I’m in an anthology! An actual print SFF anthology!

This is the first time I’ve ever been able to write about being a queer woman and an adoptee! And to be published among all these accomplished writers, this is truly a dream come true.

If you want to pick up a copy (and I sincerely hope you do), here’s the link where you can purchase it: http://www.aqueductpress.com/books/978-1-61976-191-9.php

To celebrate getting accepted into this anthology, I commissioned one of my favorite visual artists, Laya Rose (website), to draw something related to my essay. And she delivered. She drew this, which is so incredibly beautiful and I absolutely love it:

It’s so perfect 🙂

Anyhow, I hope many of you go out and pick up a copy of this awesome anthology. Trust me, it’s not a book you want to miss.

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.
