Like a child who has fallen down. Like someone at a wedding who has had too many glasses of wine. And, you know, good stuff, too. You see, I didn't follow the usual path that authors do when they decide to bring a book into the world: finding an agent, finding a publisher, selling the rights to some big film company at least not yet -- call me, dudes.
Resources for Authors and Publishers
Canadian Young Adult Novels - Annick Press
Books about underrepresented characters by marginalised authors resonate with readers. But publishing needs to catch up. Growing up in the Dominican Republic, Adriana Herrera was always a voracious reader, tearing through books from all different genres. But when her mother gave her a box set of romance novels about an Austrian princess that had been translated into Spanish, Herrera discovered a genre that, decades later, still provides "a particular type of comfort read". She tore through young adult romance novels in her teens and came back to romance stories in her late 20s while serving as an aid worker in Latin America and Africa. But few of the romance novels she read featured characters like her: LGBTQ people, Afro-Latinxs, immigrants and other people "who know what it's like to live at the intersection of marginalised identities".
