Guess what, y’all? I’M OFFICIALLY AN AUTHOR NOW!! My book Iron Widow has been published by Penguin Random House. It’s a sci-fi reimagining of China’s only female emperor, featuring giant mechas inspired by Chinese myth creatures and an M/M/F love triangle that resolves in ✨polyamory ✨. You can get it pretty much anywhere books are sold, though I recommend buying it from your local indie bookstore if you can. If you’re in the UK/Australia/New Zealand, it comes out on Oct 7 instead!
An audiobook is also available! (Get it from Libro.fm because they support indies!)
Translations into French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian, and Portuguese are to come.
(PS. I’m dressed as a huadan, a type of character in Peking opera traditionally played by men. If you enjoy that kind of demolishment of gender roles, Iron Widow has plenty!)

Anger always leaves a large void behind it, into which a flood of sorrow pours instantly, and keeps on flowing like a great river, without beginning or end.
Olga Tokarczuk, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

It’s like I’d been born with a blind spot, and was always missing something. And what I missed was always the most important thing of all.
Haruki Murakami, Killing Commendatore

“The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures, sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Society and Solitude

I went into the desert to forget about you. But the sand was the color of your hair. The desert sky was the color of your eyes. There was nowhere I could go that wouldn’t be you.
Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides

defending my favorite female characters that have a bitchy personality, but only to hide that deep down they are incredibly vulnerable and feel unlovable and half the fandom hates them for it online isn’t enough. i need a gun
