Jumpstart The Collection - preorders open this month!
I have a story in a little book (no ok a huge book) titled The Collection. It’s first of its kind, a book of short fiction featuring transgender protagonists, and the first publication by a press dedicated to trans narratives.
Pre-orders started today, and I am beyond excited - I am thrilled. Besides being able to get copies of the book for yourself, your loved ones, your book club, your library or your classroom, Topside Press is offering early supporters an opportunity to donate a copy of The Collection to trans and queer people in prison. I am so, so happy to be working with this publisher. Oh yeah - and early supporters will also be thanked by name in print when the book comes out.
Beyond these amazing deals, the stories in this book are so, so amazing. I’ve read an advanced copy, and I’d be telling you to order this book whether I had a story in it or not. Preorder ASAP!
For anyone wondering where the fuck I’ve been, the last few weeks of my life are inside this book. About two years ago my boyfriend got the hare-brained idea to start publishing and to kick stuff off by releasing an anthology of short fiction with transgender protagonists. It’s finally coming out!!! (October 16th)
I have been typesetting it for hours and hours and I finally got to see a printed page today. It’s pretty awezome. It looks great and there is tons of good stuff inside: 28 stories by 28 different writers! I have read each story about 18 times and I still like it. If you like trans people you’ll love this book. But don’t take it from me, read it for yourself when it comes out! [duh-nun-NUNT!]
Our online presence is kinda dull for now as we get everything together, but watch us on the internet as shit goes down! You can see a complete list of contributing authors on our website, with full bios and tons of info coming soon.
