i just wanted to clarify some things

artists know the risk they are taking when they post their art online. people are inevitably going to take it apart, color edit it, flip it around or otherwise post it uncredited.

saying that an artist shouldn’t post their work if they don’t…

"just because it’s “bound to happen” doesn’t mean it’s any less deplorable.”

Hi Tumblr! My debut novel Otherbound is currently under $5 on Amazon Kindle. Otherbound is a YA fantasy about Nolan Santiago, a boy from our world who’s spent ten years involuntarily witnessing the life of a servant girl from another world every time he blinks—and what happens when they finally learn to communicate.

Reasons to buy:

  • Less than $5 for a brand-new book—it released June 2014.
  • Professional reviewers call Otherbound "stunning," "ingenious," "exciting," "intelligent," and praise the "subtle, nuanced examinations of power dynamics and privilege." It received no less than four starred reviews.
  • Show New York publishers that you support diverse books. If you’re able, vote with your wallet—these things matter.
  • I’m serious. My publisher has been wonderful to me. Thanks to Amulet Books, my fantasy novel exploring agency and consent, featuring queer, disabled protagonists of color is on shelves in bookstores and libraries worldwide. I’d love to keep writing books for them—and sales are a big part of that.
  • (I also want to keep keep feeding my cat.) (She’s kinda cute.)
  • The cover is pretty. Like, really pretty.
  • How often have you seen a fantasy world with Dutch elements?

Thanks for checking it out and spreading the word. You’re all pretty excellent. <3

So I just read this insanely beautiful book called POINTE by brandycolbert.  And I’m kind of obsessed with it now.  It’s got it all—ballet and darkness and hot guys and creepy guys and FEELS.  Plus it was beautiful written.  Plus there are Themes Which Are Haunting, which makes this an amazing book to give to my teen and adult library patrons.

And I liked it so much that I’d like to give away a copy!  The task to win is deceptively simple: you must guess my favorite dance movie.  Which is a movie where dancing is a substantial and central part of the story, and I’ll even give you a bonus hint, it’s not Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.  You’re welcome.

Center Stage! Or Step Up 2: The Streets.

WINNER. Also everybody should go watch Center Stage right now because of Dance and also because of Zoe Saldana being a cigarette smoking, Swan Lake dancing BAMF.

I’m sort of psychic.

thelittlesisteryouneverwanted, can you send or email me your address?  I will send you a book.
