Hey Bloggers! I need to get real with you for a second.
We need more women writing stories.
We need more women being published.
We need more women making art.
We need to see more LGBT and POC characters carrying their own stories and NOT being killed off to further a cisthet white male character’s arc.
We need LGBTQIA+ Stories that are more than reducing characters to their sexualities.
We need to be able to read the characters whenever we want
We need to make all of these demands mainstream and we can do it. I promise you, we can do it.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
I curated a book of short stories called Crows on Heartstrings. It’s a book of doomed love stories. The stories aren’t all solely romance though, we include stories from Fantasy, Sci-fi, Period, and Contemporary genres.
We need your help on Kickstarter, so read on and decide if you would like to back us!
We have artists and writers from all over the world, sure, we have some heterosexual romance here, but we focused on being inclusive of ALL types of love.
With Crows on Heartstrings, you can read about:
Love between Asexual witches
A Faery Prince and an Elven Prince whose reason they can’t be together ISN’T that they’re gay and bisexual, respectively
Two ladies who break curses and together and fall deeply and wonderfully in love.
And SO MUCH MORE ..The stories just keep going on! We have 13 stories and 2 comics.
Our artists and writers include people you know form tumblr like @pannan-art @maxwickstrom @aegisdea @dodtt @heavenlyeros @artofpan @weatherfox @aubreymeeksart @shadowhimsy @gloriousmonsters @glitzandshadows @alzuna and so many more!
The only thing that we were super stringent about was that all the stories had to be doomed. So your favorite characters are going to suffer. I promise you they will. But the point here is that they will not suffer to be a plot device. Each character is his/her/their own person and we do not sacrifice them for the sake of a heteronormative person. Never. I promise you. The villains in these stories are who they are supposed to be and I am really confident you will love our book.
We need your help. We are a self published book and we need your support
If you pledge to get this book seen, you are telling the mainstream publishers that books like this shouldn’t have to be self published in order to be seen! Please support us, share this, our kickstarter, even if you can’t pledge! We need to share this book with you!
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
